Our relationship with the color black as it pertains to wardrobe choices has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years.  For quite some time, the only time you’d see us wearing it was at a black tie event or the occasional sporting event.  That certainly isn’t the case anymore, and soon we’ll be working the hue into our bowtie collection thanks to High Cotton Ties’ just released Black Gingham bow.
