Jerrys : it is the same for me; this is due to arthrosis and I hate it, but it comes with age.

@jerrys Just wear an extra-large face mask and no one will notice your frayed bow tie. :-)

@pindemiche Very interesting. Thanks!

@pindemiche A most interesting backstory. Thanks.
@Bluestockings Personally, I admire the proportion of this handsome gentleman's neck (with great envy). Mine is so short that I fray out the top edges of bow ties in only a couple of wearings! Thanks for presenting another intriguing work of art.

I round this :
«Philpot was introduced to Henry Thomas in 1929, after the Jamaican had missed his boat home. He became Philpot’s servant and companion, remaining with him until the artist died in 1937, and was the model for all Philpot’s paintings of black men from 1932. On visits to America and Paris, Philpot frequented jazz clubs and had made sketches and painted portraits of black men. At a time when few portraits of black men were painted by white artists, Philpot’s paintings and drawings display empathy and sensitivity towards his sitters.»
