Anyone can look dapper in a bow tie--provided that you're not otherwise naked. But if you want to look extra fancy, then you should wear a big bow tie. The bigger the bow tie, the more elegant the man. Ergo, Zach Barnhorst is the most dapper man on earth. At a recent public event in San Diego, he wore a tie that measured 7 feet tall and 15 feet wide.

Looking sharp is a key part of Barnhorst's lifestyle. He runs a menswear company with a selection of bow ties. He takes bow ties seriously, which is why he didn't cheat by assembling a clip-on tie. His enormous, record-breaking tie is a real tie scaled up. Folding and tying it required several assistants. You can watch a video of them assembling it here.
