As anticipated, there was plenty of reaction from readers about a new study finding that men who wear bow ties are “a little weird.” A majority of those polled, in fact, said they don’t want a bow-tie wearer “in the neighborhood, as a friend, or in the family.”
“The liberal elite editors and publishers of the Boston Globe have been famously monikered with the term ‘The bowtied bumkissers of Morrissey Boulevard’ — Morrissey Boulevard being the home address of the Boston Globe,” notes Eddie C., who like most of the men weighing in could live without bow ties.
But then we opened this sincere rather touching note from Denise Noe:
“It’s upsetting to see men who wear bow ties perceived negatively. After all, what does almost every man wear on his wedding day?”
