My husband is a big bowtie fan. He even shops fabric stores on his lunch break looking for nice fabrics. I used the David pattern with a slight modification. I reduced the width on the band and opted not to interface that piece so that it would be thin enough when I used the hook and slide combo. Now, I make these for gifts and I don’t have to worry about knowing the persons neck size. This way also works because my husband doesn’t know how to tie a bow tie so I can tie it for him and he only has to hook it on his neck and adjust; however, if he undoes the tie then he’s out of luck until I tie it again.:-)
