I'm really a lot more happy about this bow tie than this picture would make you believe. In fact, this is a true favorite: a brown cashmere diamond-point with a VERY subtle orange-y pinkish (??) herringbone pattern. As you can see, it's so subtle that the non-up-close photos hardly even hint that it's there.
This favorite of mine is actually no longer available---AFTER this one is gone. (If one is attune to the TCC archives, one would be aware that this used to constitute half of The Clevelander--a reversible cashmere number with an equally brown with orange-y subtleness occupying the oposite side.)
It doesn't really make sense to wear this with red and navy socks, but that's what I had on when the bow tie was finally made...so back off! Besides, once you've got Oak Street Bootmakers pennies on, and are digging the look with the denim and the striped socks, there's no going back.
There---I'm happier looking. The oxford button down is an unthinkable cotton-poly 60/40 blend. But it's pale pink, it was cheap from the thrift store, and it fits: considerations that for now outweigh my hatred for polyester.
Okay, time to run over to the store and purchase this bow tie before you have no more opportunity EVER. Don't mean to be alarmist. Just stating the truth as plainly as possible. This is cashmere, which makes it worth much more than the very generous price point at which it shall be sold. And don't forget that all the proceeds go to our development project in Haiti.
