While I’m still figuring out some details with the Series 6 bowties, I thought I’d post a quick index of the Series 5 bowties.
There’s mostly two bowties in Series 5 – and in Series 6 they were retired. Bowtie 3 only makes one brief appearance in The Big Bang – although a very similar self-tie version of Bowtie 3 features heavily in Series 6’s Let’s Kill Hitler.
The word on the street is that Bowtie 2 (navy) is actually denim. Bowtie 1 (burgundy) is a plain silk weave. Bowtie 3 (white) is silk in a traditional piqué weave. All three of these bowties are pre-tied.
