    Charles Olive: Lookbook

Time to embrace the bow-tie look? Designer Charles Olive is your man...

Posted by Rob Alderson,

There are certain items of clothing that make a statement – turn up in a cape and people will think you’re an aristocrat with a dark past, don a feather boa and you immediately scream louche pleasure-seeker. Rock up in a bow-tie though and people will think you’re a smart guy with a twinkle in your eye, a roguish professor-type with sartorial standards and a sense of fun. Step forward then Charles Olive, a British bow-tie brand which combines traditional craftsmanship with contemporary style, so much so that some of their pieces are even designed using Excel spreadsheets. Their new look-book is a treat and if you’re anything like me you’ll just keep wondering why you don’t wear a bow-tie more often.
