On second thought, inundating you guys’ inboxes with bow ties would be a bit bunch. But I’ve been tweeting my 12 Days of Christmas Bow Tie Special. Here’s an update.
On the 1st Day of Christmas, I designed the Southern Gent which was inspired by my southern influence.
On the 2nd day of Christmas, I designed Winter because Charlotte looks nothing like a Winter Wonderland and, I needed to see snow. In this tie, there is abstract snowflakes pattern. So much for Christmas in NJ. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.
On the 3rd Day of Christmas, the nation mourned a tragedy. We lost 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut. Mostly precious children. I didn’t post at all. Yet I designed the Purple Heart for all the brave souls we learned about that day.
On the 4th Day of Christmas, I attended #asummitchristmas (find these wild tweets by using tgis hashtag) which was coordinated and hosted by Carolina alumni. It was the BEST party I attended all year. And I attended a lot of parties this year so … There were over 70 people at this house party. Homemade liquor, food, hookahs … a party. And folks sported their tacky sweaters. This could’ve been my tacky bow tie. I instead left this at home and went in a sparkly gold tunic, leopard black print/black jeans, and gold heels. Oh and a blazer. Just in case you were wondering. Anyway see my Tacky Sweater Bow Tie. Ain’t it a beauty?
On the 5th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom black and red bow tie for a client in Atl. It’s a reversible made with canvas and taffeta. It’s so hot. Watch how I tied it here.
On the 6th Day of Christmas, I’m not going to lie to you, I was negotiating deals with another bow tie designer. And I went fabric shopping. The store was still out of my herringbone. So annoyed. But a few fellas had been inquiring about bow ties I had on-hand especially The Modern Outdoorsman. Truth be told, I have a sample that I will not sell. But I decided to put this tie up for rent. No new bow tie design here. Just a popular piece put up for rental.
On the 7th Day of Christmas, I went fabric shopping for more Christmas–themed colors. And my ATL client wanted a matching pocket square. The Female Haberdasher received more hits online, emails, and so forth about more custom bow ties. I’m on crunch time. And when you’re the only one picking out fabric, sewing bow ties, marketing, advertising, and so forth, it gets too be a bit much when the orders roll in. I’ve been managing. But I need so help!! But anyway, here’s the pocketsquare and bow tie set together.
On the 8th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom bow tie that hasn’t been revealed because it’s for an event tonight. So I hate to keep you in suspense, but check back tomorrow. This bow tie has four different lapels! Talk about complicated. But it’s dope! Here’s a single style pattern of it. Christmas Polka dots with a strip of red down the middle.
On the 9th day of Christmas, I found myself back at the post office in a long line. And believe me, I’m grateful. I’m thrilled that people are loving my bow tie designs.
Furthermore, I did more fabric shopping and thought to myself that another reversible is in order. So I’ve put a few different patterns together. All poly fabric. Will post this bow tie tomorrow, between fabric shopping and the postal office errands, of course. I gotta get these bow ties shipped before the holidays. That’s how much I appreciate my customers. More tomorrow, so tune in then for more pictures and more designs.
