With the kick off of college football this weekend, it is only fitting I feature a school themed bow tie. Souther Proper recently came out with the Bar Stripe Bow Tie ($60) that is unlike any other bow I have seen. The wide stripes of alternating color make a bold statement around the neck. The Bar Stripe bow comes in six different colors, most of which are colors of schools in the SEC. Don’t let this hold you back if you are a Big 10, ACC, Big 12, or some other conference fan, the colors of the bar stripe bow can easily work for other schools, too. Also, don’t forget the matching koozie to go along with your bow! Start the season off right by wearing the your colors on Bow Tie Friday and showing your stripes at the pre-game tailgate.
