Choosing the Right Bow Tie for Boys: Neck Strap or Elastic?

When it comes to dressing up your little boy for special occasions, choosing the right bow tie can make all the difference. But with so many options out there, it can be tough to know which one is best. Let's dive into the world of boys' bow ties and explore the two choices: on an adjustable neck strap or elasticated. 

Adjustable Neck Strap Bow Ties (5-12 years old):
For boys aged 5 to 12, adjustable neck strap bow ties are the way to go. These bow ties come in a pre-tied style and have a height of 5cm and a width of 10cm, giving them a classic and balanced look, which won't slip as they're worn through the day.


They come with an adjustable neck strap, so you can easily find the perfect fit for your child's neck, and the best part? No need to fuss with tying knots – just adjust the strap and go!

Elasticated Bow Ties (4 and under):
Now, if your little one is 4 or under, elasticated bow ties are the perfect choice. These bow ties are slightly smaller, with a height of 4.5cm and a width of 9cm, making them just right for tiny necks.

With the elastic on them you don't have to worry about adjusting anything – it stretches to fit easily around your child's neck, allowing for easy movement and all-day comfort. 

So it really depends on your child's age and size. Adjustable neck strap bow ties are great for older boys, offering a tailored fit and a touch of sophistication. On the other hand, elasticated bow ties are perfect for younger ones, providing a snug fit and hassle-free wear.

When your little guy is suiting up for a wedding there's a bow tie out there that's just right for him. Keep his age, size, and comfort in mind, and you'll find the perfect accessory to complete his look. Got your perfect size? All of our boy's bows can be found here>
