Introducing: The Fastidious Bow-Tie

For my new project I have a Fastidious Bow-tie. Fastidious is defined in the dictionary to mean:

  • Very attentive to and concerned about accuracy and detail
    • he chooses his words with fastidious care

  • Very concerned about matters of cleanliness
    • the child seemed fastidious about getting her fingers sticky or dirty

  • Fastidious implies concern, often excessive, for the requirements of taste: "Your true lover of literature is never fastidious" (Robert Southey).
    With this in mind i think my object and word go hand in hand, the bow-tie is an accessory worn on occasions such as weddings, diner parties and other formal events. A bow-tie reflects style and high class, and the word fastidious would work well as it isnt out of place when talking about/describing a bow-tie; they are both very particular things.

    1. Yes - yours is a particularly lovely combination, Sean - you might want to think about how a 'fastidious bowtie' might react if it were forced to be worn by a scruffy individual - or someone eating soup, perhaps and getting splashes on it - it could be like bird, flapping its wing to shoo off the soup stains or similar. Anyway - it's a great combo - so have some fun with it :D
