Incase you are wondering how to rock the pocket square with your bow tie, the word is coordinate, not match.
Here’s some combos we love from our upcoming summer collection (Available May 1)
Yellow Madras (Coming Soon) with Navy Gingham
Navy Dot Linen (Frederick) with Salmon Madras
Pink Gingham with Light Blue pinstripe Linen
White Pique, Navy Blazer, Blue and yellow striped bow tie and a yellow seersucker pocket square. When wearing one of our lapel flowers, we think its best to go as subtle as possible with your pocket square. The White pique is one of the best pocket squares because it adds interest and texture but can go with everything.
It’s so easy to take your gift to the next level by pairing it with something.
Have you ever presented a bow tie as a gift in this fashion?
You could almost skip the wrapping paper.
This weekend only. Go pick out what you’re going to wear on Easter Sunday – and the whole week after too.
Well, the only thing cuter than a little boy in a bow tie is quite possibly a little girl wearing a bow tie headband. So much adorable! These littles came in to our studio for a visit the other day and we played a little dress up. Aren’t they great? These are the kiddos of our friend and fellow maker of great things in Rock Hill, Melody Joy Designs. Check out her stuff. Great options for mothers day gifts here.
We had a lot of fun putting this order together as well. It is for a family we know having easter pictures made. Little guy in a classic car emblematic and seersucker bow tie, Dad in a reversible seersucker and grandpa in a very dapper looking seersucker neck tie. I can’t wait to see the final shots.
If you’re interested, take a peek at Andy’s blog full of proverbs learned in his church planting experience, with some lessons also gleaned from helping Ellie run The Cordial Churchman.

These bow ties end up on my Tumblr. Every 10th bow tie seems to get passed around the Tumblr-sphere (is that a thing?) 50 or 100 times. This was one of them. Perhaps it strikes a chord because it’s silk and it’s striped, but it’s not at all a normal silk striped offering.
Or maybe it’s just that I look cool in my shades. Pssshhh. Grab it here. There’s just one. All the cash goes to Haiti as usual.
PS–Cool linen button down in pale green, huh? Brooks Brothers. Goodwill. Less than 5 bones.

For the year of 2012, we have taken on an interesting project that is working quite well. My husband, Andy Stager has committed to wearing a bow tie every day of the year and he blogs about them and we sell them through our online store EVERY BIT of the money we make from the sales of his daily bow ties goes to support these children in Haiti. Sofar, we have been able to use the sales to build them a dining area in their school and repair their bathrooms. The next bit of funding is going to go to purchasing them school shirts with the school’s name on it.
I wanted to share with you some photos that a friend Kay (who was the Cordial Churchman’s first hired seamstress!) who is the director of OneChild took on a recent trip to Haiti. These are the children that YOU have been able to help by purchasing the bow ties from the 366 Bow Ties project! This is the school that we have been able to help renovate for these children.
It is so amazing to be able to help in this way. Won’t you consider helping too? If you are a business owner and have resources to help these children, we’d love to get them supplied with clothes, art supplies, instruments and other things that would make their education that much more rich.
Are you a family that would consider sponsoring one of these children through the One Child program for $35/mo? The best way to find out more about how to sponsor a child is to e-mail the organization at OneChild@mtw.org
And thank you for your support through the 366 bow ties project! We have raised a good bit of money and sold almost every bow tie that Andy has worn.
We also want to give a special thanks to BILLS KHAKIS, OAK STREET BOOTMAKERS and WOLVERINE 1000 MILE BOOTS. These companies have supported the project by supplying Andy with clothes and shoes to wear with his this year. If you are interested in supporting the project in this way, e-mail us at email@example.com We’d be very happy to wear and review your products on our blog.
We found a leftover from our wildly successful collaboration with Put This On. I decided to put it on. We’ll give them their cut and then we’ll pass along the rest of the proceeds to MTW for our project in Haiti—building furniture for a school that gives children a shot at a better future.
It’s a handsome navy silk classic cut with a floral pattern. As classic as it gets. Silk imported from England.
Even on a sucker like me with a silly mustache, it still looks good.
You know what else looks good? My Oak Street Bootmakers penny loafers.
Grab this PTO X TCC collaboration bow tie before it’s gone forever.
