Bow ties and suspenders go together like America and apple pie, or like America and a righteous ass whooping depending on who you are.
Back in the old day, blokes would square up with nothing but suspenders to keep up their pantaloons during a good bare-knuckle fight. After that, they'd tie up their bowties, shake hands, and get hammered at the local watering hole acting like it never happened. There is a reason why major public figures such as Colonel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, and FDR wore the iconic tie, and it's because wearing a bow tie is a power move. KFC was born, slavery was abolished, and the New Deal was directly formed by the people who refused to wear regular ties.
