In the midst of the World Cup, the media is asking whether it’s worth it to wear a cotton bow tie.
It’s a question the football world will have to answer after the Brazilians took down Chile in the semi-finals.
It certainly seems to have been the case during the first game, when Brazil lost 2-1 to the hosts.
“I think it’s fine,” said Brazil captain André Silva, “but it has to be done in a way that is respectful.
If we don’t do it right, it’s not going to be nice.”
Brazil captain Neymar also had some thoughts on the bow tie: “I am not going for a bow because I like the style,” he said.
“But, if I had to choose, I would choose a white bow.”
It was the first time that Brazil has lost a semi-final match on the pitch in over a decade.
Brazil will play Argentina in the next round, and their final World Cup match will be against Spain.
The news is certainly encouraging for the Brazilian community.
However, there are still plenty of things to think about.
The bow tie is an obvious choice, but why is it the only option?
If the bow ties are worn with a full-face mask, which is how Brazil fans are supposed to wear them, then why is the mask not on display?
Why do the Brazilian media have to wear bow ties in front of the camera?
In order to give Brazil a more modern look, they could have chosen something more traditional, like the traditional Brazilian t-shirt.
They could have done away with the bowtie altogether.
If Brazil were to win the tournament, and they lose the semi finals, would this be a bad thing?
Perhaps the answer to all of these questions will be yes.
The Brazilian players and coaches have said that wearing bow ties is the right thing to do.
They have even been using the hashtag #brazilianbowtied to show support.
This trend is certainly growing in popularity, and Brazil is no exception.
It might be a trend that catches on, but the future of the bowtied Brazilian jersey is still uncertain.
