So a few weeks ago Jesse Thorn posted over at PutThisOn about a great way to meld menswear with marriage equality vis-a-vis the TieTheKnot.org, an organization co-founded by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his partner Justin Mikita dedicated to advocating for marriage equality. I of course immediately bought one of the bow ties, available exclusively through The Tie Bar, and it arrived last week when I was in the throes of my ‘one week of vintage Brooks Brothers ties’ challenge. Today is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to wear it, and I do so proudly.

Never worry too much about a perfect knot.

Bow Tie: G. Fox & Co., thrifted $4
I rarely come across bow ties when thrifting, and hardly ever ones this nice.

Drake’s Bowties

Paisleys and foulards. Stunning in the simultaneity of their staidness, boldness of color and pattern, and eternal elegance.
