Kit Spinnaker by Kiel James Patrick

On July 8, 2011, in Bowties, Mens, by Ryan & Ben

It is hard work to successfully put a nautical spin on something that doesn’t usually show up on a boat.  Yes, we are suckers for t-shirts with old charts and nautical flags, but beyond that there isn’t much in our wardrobe that shows our love for the water (excluding boatshoes, or course).  Recently, our friends at Kiel James Patrick released a line of bowties, and to say they have succeeded in putting a nautical spin on one of our favorite things, a bowtie, would be an understatement.  While the whole line is great, one that really stands out to us is the Kit Spinnaker ($65).

With a vision unlike anyone else out their, KJP has managed to add a new look to the classic repp stripe bowtie with one simple addition.  In lieu of an additional color, a nautical rope detail has been added to create a look that cannot be found on any other ties on the market.  While we really like the look of the rope accent on solids, it truly shines on the multi-colored ties like the Kit Spinnaker.  Made of 100% silk right here in the USA, this self-tie bow is one that will certainly become a mainstay in our rotation.
