After a Ravens Super Bowl win on Sunday, and a huge celebration on Tuesday, the state of Maryland is still in a bit of a purple haze.  Though we still prefer college sports to the pros, we’ve definitely found ourselves caught in the moment and have managed to work in a little purple to our look a few times this week.  That being said, we thought it’d be fitting to cap off the week with a purple bowtie giveaway.  Thanks to our friends at Dogwood Black, someone is going to be the winner of their great looking Plum Bow Tie.

Made from some of the finest shirting fabric in the world (Thomas Mason), the Plum Bow Tie is definitely lighter than your typical silk bow, but will work all year round when paired correctly.  Of course, we’re huge fans of the gingham pattern, and the plum is a great color for Fall and Winter.  If you want to add this great looking bowtie to your rotation, follow the steps below.  We’ll be taking entries until 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, February 15.

1. Leave a comment below and let us know where you’d wear your Plum bow.

2. Follow @DogwoodBlack and @BowsandBoats on Twitter and tweet something that mentions both of us.
