There’s something special about owning something that is unique and very few other people have. It sets you apart and can take a good outfit to great. I have discussed several brands that have concentrated on producing limited runs of their apparel. One brand applying this concept to bow ties is Forage. The Philadelphia-based brand has a slew of unique bow ties, including the Red & Blue Flannel Bow Tie ($68).
Forage sets itself apart from other bow tie brands by creating limited edition bow ties from “fabric remnants, vintage deadstock or extra special finds.” This keeps their patterns and designs fresh and unique. Each bow tie is handcrafted, so allow up to two weeks to receive your bow tie. Each self-tie bow tie fits necks from size 14-18. This particular pattern is a red and blue plaid on vintage flannel fabric. You’ll need to act fast if you see a bow tie you like on the web site as supply is limited and you never know when it will run out (although Forage has helpfully posted when there are only a few bow ties of a particular style left).
