Ties and bow ties for a certain kind of man can be compared to shoes. A tie can be that one piece of accessory that can make or break your look, especially on our wedding day.
A tie can be that accessory that can be used to compliment the overall theme of your bride’s accent color. It can be used to offset her bridal party’s dress color. When paired off correctly it can definitely be that perfect touch needed to complete the look.
This basic accessory can be the perfect gift for the groomsmen as a token of your appreciation and a thank you gift between you gentlemen.
So when you start looking for your suit or tuxedo, don’t get stuck on the simple choices that may often limit a man’s personality. Add your own personality to it by having fun with the accessory—the bow tie or the tie. We found some great companies that added a little funk to the little things.
One company that we came across is Beau Ties Ltd., and the story as it is told is absolutely charming. It takes a man of style to take matters into his own hand and build a small empire on the details that matter. The charming story details the challenges one man faced, Bill Kenerson, in finding his look that lead him to creating his own solution to a problem and now extending it to his fellowmen of style. A story of modest beginnings also sits well with us. Especially when it is filled with color. This Vermont based business although no longer owned by Bill Kenerson, still maintains a dapper sense of style that continues with the legacy it was intended to.
Next we come to a New York local, DLeak Leather Bow Ties, owned and operated by Darrick Leak. This young company definitely has a well wrapped up story when it comes to this complimentary piece of clothing. He uses textures and fabrics ranging from a variety of embossed and genuine python, crocodile, ostrich, lambskin, stingray, paisley, suede, and woven leathers. This unique sense of style is what I promise will make this small business go viral among the young and stylish gents who dare to be different. DLeak Leather Ties offers personalized service that allows you to create your own ties that can be custom made just for you. No more going cookie cutter accessories. Statement pieces only.
So why settle for boring when you can make a statement that will not only tie up the loose ends but make a fashion statement on your wedding day, gentlemen. Happy Shopping gentlemen.
