The bolo tie, also known as a bola tie, is as synonymous with Western American culture as the great American cowboy hat. Originally named a Piggin Necklet, Vic settled on a shorter, more simple name, the bola tie. Due to its historical significance, many names have arisen since its invention, now generally recognized as the bolo tie.2 While historical, the bolo tie is still popular today and in no way should be considered an artifact of the past. Styling your bolo tie will ensure you stand out from cookie-cutter suits. Instead, you can display your style and refuse to comply with the more bland stylings of some modern ties.
