I think I had mentioned before that when I had Googled for “Eastern Bolo Ties”, Google couldn’t believe I had even asked such a foolish question. Everything came back western. Of course bolo ties are western, I’m western too, and I really appreciate the casual aspect of bolo ties.
I suppose if I’d been born and raised in the east, I would have learned to appreciate putting on a bib-like noose when a tie was called for. Now I don’t want to start an East-West war here, but just thinking that thought makes me appreciate western bolo ties even more!
A lot of bolo ties have some of the flavor of Southwestern bolo ties, but the ones that are created there in the Southwest are distinctive. You can usually count on having some combination of Native American design, silver, turquoise, and/or red stone.
There just seems to be something special about that combination. There are certainly other bolo designs that are more expensive and would possibly look better with your best suit. However, if you just knock some of the pasture off your boots, put on a pair of blue jeans, a western shirt, and a Southwestern bolo tie, you’re all dressed up.
Another reason to love bolo ties just occurred to me. I’ve never had to get one dry cleaned because I spilled soup on it.
We here in Wyoming occasionally experience a bit of a breeze, but I’ve never had the bottom of a cowboy tie bolo blow up and smack me in the face either.
By the way, the breeze I was referring to having occasionally would probably be called a gale-force wind elsewhere. A person might be in danger of being strangled by the wind with one of those soup catcher types of ties.
How many good reasons do you need to abandon the wearing of business ties? For me, one is enough. It looks good even if you don’t have the top button on your shirt fastened. But a bolo tie has a lot more than that going for it.
They tend to attract the attention of the ladies. That alone would be reason enough to forsake forever the ridiculous idea of wearing a business tie. Need more reason? You’re wearing nice looking jewelry without looking like a sissy. Ok, your turn…what’s your favorite reason?
Ok guys and gals, you know you like attention. That ugly business tie your kids got you for Christmas last year may get you ridicule, but that’s not the kind of attention you want, right? Really nice looking western bolo ties will get you the good kind of attention.
I never cease to be amazed by how many comments (the good kind) I get by wearing a nice bolo with my sharp looking western shirt. People you never imagined would appreciate western apparel (mostly of the female persuasion) can’t keep their hands off my attractive western bolo tie. You don’t have to admit you do, but I like that kind of attention.
