Pronouncing Bouxtie

Bouxtie is pronounced bow-tie - like the narrow piece of cloth that is put around a shirt collar and tied into a bow for special occasions - Think James Bond looking sharp in Tom Ford.

Fun Fact: The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts.
