The Pointed end with a sharp bowtie-tip is a typical shape of a bow tie. Historically, there are several variations with different width, and the impression of the knot varies. Like the design of the eyeglass frame, the impression will look different even if the bow tie end-width changed only 0.5 cm. We propose variations of Pointed end 2cm, 3cm or 4cm width.
Pointed End 2cm width
This ultra-narrow width type is a design that can be confirmed often in portraits of the late nineteenth century. The silhouettes of Cross-bow-knot are symbolic, and can produce cool and keen ambience such as in portraits of the philosopher Nietzsche . During the Meiji era of Japan, politicians such as Yajiro Shinagawa and Takayoshi Sekiguchi seemed to like this style.
Pointed End 3cm width
This width can be called the Narrow-pointed end, and it can produce a somewhat small and sharp knot. This type can often be confirmed in portraits of the late nineteenth century, and it is the most popular design among BOWTIE SPECIMENS's self-tie bow tie.
Pointed End 4cm width
This type also, can be confirmed often in portraits of the late nineteenth century, and this width is narrower than the 5 to 6 cm width which is generally popular now. It is possible to make moderately sharp knots. It is easy to express the silhouette of the knot.
