Ways Fat Guys Can Wear Bow Ties

Wear The Tie Larger Than Normal

One problem often faced by fat guys, who want to wear bows and ties, is that they cannot tie them because their heads cannot get close enough to their neck.

The result is an un-tied knot or crooked look that many people will find unattractive and unprofessional. A larger bowtie can help you tie your bow tie without worrying about what it will look like and how it will look on you.

Many fat guys who wear a smaller version will find that it does not carry over well onto their neck, especially if they are not wearing a dress shirt or jacket. Also, a larger bowtie can help you tie your bow tie without worrying about what it will look like and how it will look on you.

Currently, the average size of a bow tie is about 5.5 inches. For someone overweight, that would be too small to fit around the neck and make it uncomfortable. Therefore, they would often have to buy an ‘extra-large’ bow tie 8 inches in length. Not only are these larger sizes too big for you, but you also don’t need to carry around an extra-large bow tie since it doesn’t fit properly.

Instead of wasting money on a bow tie that doesn’t fit properly, wear a larger size and save yourself from the unnecessary pain and discomfort that this purchase can bring you. However, it doesn’t mean that you can choose a bow tie size in direct proportion to your neck size. It’s better to go by the measurements of the actual tie itself.

This way, you will be certain that the bow tie will fit nicely around your neck and won’t be too tight or loose. To find out what size bow tie is right for you, you should always measure the circumference of your neck around where it meets your collarbone.

Wear A Waistcoat With The Bow Tie

A waistcoat with a bow tie is an elegant look that will be easy to pull off for any body type but especially great for fat guys like me who are having trouble finding shirts that fit properly. The waistcoat hides the gut, and the jacket’s long sleeves will cover even large arms, making you look like an accomplished gentleman instead of a chubby kid trying too hard to fit in.

It’s a intriguing way to add a touch of elegance or a burst of eccentricity. In particular, waistcoats are not that restricting for fat guys – especially if they’re made of the softest wool or cashmere fibers on Earth. As a result, they can help fat guys maintain their perfect posture while walking.

A waistcoat with the proper fabric can also help you have more freedom in your movements, as it won’t restrict the range of motion in your arms or back! Besides, it also protects your clothes from stains when you cough or sneeze (beneficial for these flu seasons).

Wear A Jacket With The Bow Tie

If you wear something with a bow tie, wearing a jacket is likely to be a more comfortable and better fit.

Wearing a jacket with a bow tie is more stylish for fat guys than a regular necktie. It means you’re saying that you are proud of yourself. People will admire your style, and the classic design of your bow tie will make you look good when you go out with your friends or during a night out with the ladies!

Jacketed bow ties go over the shoulders and look more professional. Also, your jacket can help hide some of those bulges by hiding your stomach and giving off the illusion that you are thinner than you are.

If you aren’t happy with how your jacket makes you look, consider wearing it tied differently. There are plenty of ways to tie a jacket, so you are sure to find one that fits your body perfectly.

Tie It Yourself

When you tie a bow tie, you can feel good about yourself! Your newfound sense of accomplishment will carry over into other aspects of your life and improve things like relationships and work ethic.

Also, when you tie a bow tie yourself, you’re not spending time finding and contacting a professional, waiting for them to be available, paying them (it adds up!), or worrying about the outcome.

Further, it can be a fun family activity to tie the bow ties! – what’s better than spending quality time together making memories? Add in a little competition, and it’s even more fun. Since there are so many different ways you can go about tying the bow tie, it will make for a fun experience if everyone is trying to outdo each other.

Don’t Wear A Pre-Made Tie

Pre-tied ties may make sense to most people, but they don’t always suit fat guys. Here are three reasons why fat guys should not wear a pre-made tie:

A pre-made tie is a tourniquet for the neck, designed only to fit necks with more fatty tissue than there is room in the opening. When seated, your head will be at risk of being squeezed to death by the pressure from these cinches on top and bottom that were never meant to go around it in its current state.

Pre-made ties come with an annoying but necessary loop at one end (the “keeper”). That keeps the knot in place when you put it on but will also leave an imprint on your shirt as you take it off. Also, your tie will be jerking and pulling around. You will spend several minutes trying to keep your tie on than worrying about what you will say next, which is especially embarrassing if there is a mirror behind you.

You will not fit properly in a jacket or suit jacket.

Fat guys often have trouble fitting into regular-sized clothing, and that includes ties. Those who have purchased long-length ties probably had to order the extra-long length because they couldn’t find the short length that works for their body type in regular stores. In other words, those fat guys who have purchased pre-made ties never fit properly even if they take in their weight correctly.

Fat guys should feel free to wear whatever makes them happy, as long as it’s not pre-made ties. Get a proper tie, and some fat rolls will let you know when it’s time for a new one.

You will have a hard time getting a necktie knot right.

This is the biggest problem with pre-made ties because most sales websites do not offer videos or pictures of how to tie the pre-made tie properly! Fat guys who wear them during weddings and other parties will look like they don’t know how to tie a tie properly.
