to engage the neckband of the shirt with the wing-like
portions of the necktie supporting element parallel to
the neckband beneath the collar wings.
In the foregoing description, I have generally set out
the structure of my invention together with certain ob
jects, advantages and purposes thereof.
Other objects and advantages will become apparent
from a consideration of the following description and the
accompanying drawings showing a present preferred
embodiment of the invention wherein.

The bow tie structure of my present invention is free
from all of these difficulties of the prior known pretied
bow ties, and has unique features not be found in any

Preferably, I provide a necktie supporting element and
give it a desired appearance. A collar engaging member
20 provided with diverging wings 21 on the end thereof
is ?xed to the center member 10 by means of pin-like
