As long as the bow tie is of good quality, it will look good and your attire will be correct for all events where you are to wear a bow tie. For the really style-conscious, the self-tied bow tie is preferable. It takes a little practice to learn to tie the bow tie yourself and it can preferably become a little asymmetrical.
