Bow ties

I've got another wedding to attend and I'm thinking about buying a bow tie. I'll probably just be safe and pick a traditional black and white polka dot and pair it with a white dress shirt and my standard grey suit. The question is: where can I get a decent quality, self-tie bow tie at a reasonable price in the city? Brooks Brothers has just the type of one I'm looking for, but it's 55 USD so it'll probably be somewhere in the neighbourhood of 80 bucks here with standard markup. I don't want to spend a ton of money on something that I will probably wear once or twice per year (if that.)

TIA.

If you're only going to wear it once, why not get a cheap one from Le Chateau? Est. price $25-$50.

the cheap ones are ugly as fuck.
Go to Harry Rosen, or Holt Renfrew.

If its just for one day make sure you dont puke on it and you can return it

Because cheap bow ties can be seen a mile away. I will be the MC of this wedding and I need to be the second-best dressed guy in the house.

Yes, I thought about Front and Company. I will definitely drop in sometime this week.

If you have the time, hit up Macy's in Washington. Huge bow tie selection and most priced between 15 and 45 dollars.
