25 Days of Holiday Gifts: Bow Tie

Day 4: Vintage style that makes a statement
On the heels of a successful, soon-to-conclude Movember campaign (that gave us this tie and this image), online trendsetter Rock My Bow Tie now boasts a series of vintage-y holiday-appropriate ties. It’s a local company, the brainchild of Ball State grad Cris Dorman, and all its ties go for the same reasonable price. We dig this brushed-cotton tie for its throwback appeal, and it’s an easy gateway to making a statement at that holiday mixer without looking forced or resorting to stale red-and-green patterns. Sedated brown and blue hues let the teal provide the pop. It’s a tie that does the talking for you ahead of approaching that good-looking friend of a friend across the room. $25.
