I love products made in America. I love bow ties. Therefore, based on the transitive factor, I love bow ties that are made in America. Fitting this bill and providing an environmentally-conscious twist is the James Bow from Collared Greens ($55).
Collared Greens was started by former freelance outdoor lifestyle photographer, R. Randolph “Randy” Ashton. Ashton recognized a need for elegant, timeless clothing that was also eco-conscious. Recognizing this niche, Ashton created Collared Greens to provide and market environmentally-sensitive clothing.
The James Bow is handmade from fine imported woven silk in New York and is packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Available in four colors (Pink, Blue, Peach and Green), each bow tie features a contrasting stripe. You can also feel good about wearing this bow tie because one percent of Collared Green’s profit is donated to “One Percent for the Planet” and another one percent is donated to the CG24 Conservation Project, which partners with three conservationalists each year.
