If you’re a frequent visitor to Bowties & Boatshoes, you know that we are huge fans of Old Try.  You also know that one of our founders, Ben, started a little company called Starboard Clothing not long after we launched the site.  Well, today we’re happy to announce that these two brands have come together to create one great looking bowtie.  Our Bowtie Friday pick this week has been dubbed “Bow Try No. 1,” and it’s available exclusively over at Old Try.

Yesterday, we talked about retiring our boatshoes for the year.  After months on end of heavy wear it’s always a sad day knowing that it’ll be a few months until we’re able to wear them again.  That being said, there’s something that just feels right about putting on a solid pair of boots this time of year.  If you feel the same way, we think you’ll love the Red Wing 4553 Oil Cloth Boots that are available exclusively at Brooks Brothers.

Over the years, we’ve profiled a number of Social Primer bowties.  Whether they have come from the Social Primer for Brooks Brothers line, or our friend Cooper’s own collection, Social Primer by K. Cooper Ray, the bows are always well received.  That being said, we were pretty excited when we learned that neckties would also be included in the Social Primer by K. Cooper Ray collection.  We were excited to see what kind of Social Primer spin would put on them, and we were definitely not disappointed.  One of our favorite neckties in the line is the Gamma, luckily for you, that’s the tie that happens to be the centerpiece of the prize pack that we’re giving away today.
