Thanks for the update on the bow tie ("The Ties That Bind Them," Aug. 2). I remember how my father wore them once in a while, and he always looked so handsome when he did. He enjoyed them most of his life, whether they were in fashion or not. He made them look good and they suited him in return. I especially enjoyed reading that the Bow Tie Club came from a man who earned his degree from the University of Baltimore. My dad was born in Baltimore.
