Charlie Chaplin wore one. Winston Churchill wore one. Even David Beckham recently tied one on. But finessing a bow tie is likely one of the most maddening feats of manual dexterity you'll ever attempt. (How did our grandfathers do it?) We suggest avoiding the frustration altogether by strapping on a wooden version from Two Guys, an Oklahoma-based company that reclaims exotic hardwoods from flooring and furniture to create its handcrafted wares. Available in myriad wood grains or engraved patterns (including polka dots and plaid), each bow tie is a unique fusion of carpentry and fashion.
