Donnie Thompson Formal Bowtie

Developed by powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson and Spud Inc., the Formal Bowtie is a simple but effective accessory for helping athletes train and maintain superior posture. In a time when the average person spends much of their day working at a computer, looking at a cell phone, or stuck driving in traffic, the problem of slouching—and the shoulder pain that comes with it—is all too common. The Bowtie attacks this issue by applying firm compression to the pectoral tendons and reducing strain on the muscles behind the shoulders. When worn during warm-ups or as you move through your squats, bench, deadlifts, etc., the Formal Bowtie not only helps limit some of these aches and pains, but also trains more consistent form. Along the way, your muscle memory is rewired, as the brain encourages better posture in your day-to-day life.

The Thompson Formal Bowtie is designed specifically for serious athletes, and is made from a heavier, stiffer webbing material than the Casual Bowtie (which can be worn throughout the day over longer periods). Available in a wide range of sizes, the Formal Bowtie can have a noticeable effect on reducing common shoulder pain and pec tightness, while also reducing the risk of more serious injuries down the road.

Most in-stock Bowtie orders placed before 3pm on a business day will ship that same day from the Rogue warehouse. You can also track your package each step of the way using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Donnie Thompson Formal Bowtie is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Posture is improving! I like how it pulls my shoulders to the correct position. It does cause tingling in my arms and slight cramping in my biceps. Seems like these are due to muscles adjusting to improved posture. Showed mine to my chiropractor and he loved it! Said he would recommend it to his patients who spend a lot of time at the computer. Overall, it’s a great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size chart didn’t work I used the weight scale to determine sizes as instructed. Purchased a large formal for myself and a medium casual for a client. The large is too loose on me and the medium is loose on my client. Pretty dissappointed. Going to re-order smalls. The medium fits me and works as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get right size I ordered a formal in a medium based on weight chart. I'm 175 lbs. it was too tight. Also very stiff. I returned it for a casual large. Love it! Wear around house couple hours a day. I have 44" chest which is large in shirts but medium on your chart. Maybe you should base size on chest measurement? Anyway I like it. Service on return was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from revolution gear Just hours after using this Bowtie, i could feel the differences, i bought the higher measurement recommended and it feels very comfortable that i could wear it all day, but could get the lower measurement just to try it out and probably wear it a few hours a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick I purchased the Bowtie for a shoulder injury that I've had on and off for years. It definitely helps take pressure of the joint and allows for a better posture while lifting. I have recommended it to others. Thanks for the quality product!
