Bows-n-Ties.com, a very popular online men's clothing retailer, took a look back at the best and worst dressed countries at this year's Olympic games. Fashion expert and founder of Bows-n-Ties.com, Hendrik Pohl, revisited all the uniforms worn during the opening ceremony by the 205 participating countries.

“We’re were excited that the Olympics were happening, it’s difficult for us to even contain ourselves,” says Bows-n-Ties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “Personally, I look forward to the summer Olympics perhaps more than any other athletic event, and the opening ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. We wanted to take the time to analyze the fashion choices made by each nation for the parade, and while we knew we’d run into some seriously well put-together ensembles, we surely saw some duds as well.”

Looking through recorded TV footage he went on to award the best and worst of fashion in the Olympics opening ceremony. He details what went right/wrong, as well as how modern men can learn from the way designers decided to go about choosing the ensembles for the Parade of Nations. "While most of the outfits we saw may not be suited for the everyday wardrobe, there are certainly some style pieces worth adopting into your routine. The Swiss, for example, did a great job in adding some color with their v-neck sweater vests. It was elegant, and at the same time far from boring", Pohl explains. Switzerland did in fact receive the "Best Dressed" gold medal during the parade of nations.

“We wanted to point out that there is actually a lot to learn about the way these ensembles came together,” says Pohl. “You don’t need to be a fashion expert to know what you like or what do you do not, and this is exactly what we’re trying to point out. There are plenty of things for modern men to learn about how to dress in an effective manner just by paying attention to what happened at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, and we wanted to bring this to the forefront.”

Bows-n-Ties.com has been publishing article series’ on celebrity and athlete fashion for some time now, and isn’t looking to slow down anytime soon.

“These article series’ are the bread and butter of our site,” says Pohl. “Readers have reacted very positively towards them, which is why we motivated to continue with them. The more we can teach our readers about fashion, the better we’ll feel about how we do our job. We always try to pay attention to what is happening currently, as time-sensitive pieces tend to be especially popular.”
