Happy Father's Day To The Heartthrob Bow Tie Wearing Dads

I have always loved a man in a bow tie!  To me, it shows a personal style that oozes confidence.  

Bow ties have become synonymous with some celebrities, and in some cases, have completely defined their look. After all, imagine what would have become of Colonel Sanders, Orville Redenbacher, Bill Nye The Science Guy and The Cat in the Hat be if they didn't have their bow ties?
