It’s likely a good chunk of your day will be spent watching the world’s best golfers on the pristine grounds of Augusta National, so your bow tie might as well reflect that. You could go a traditional route with golf balls or clubs, but it’s a lot more fun to work some witty wordplay into the design. Watch the Masters in style with the Dogleg on Six Bow Tie by Bird Dog Bay ($55).
Handmade from printed silk, the Dogleg on Six bow tie depicts a helpful canine holding his master’s golf club. The illustration is set on a choice of two backgrounds, Coral and Soft Green, with green being the obvious choice for Masters week. Like all Bird Dog Bay bow ties, this one has six mother-of-pearl buttons in lieu of a slide for adjusting the neck. This comes in handy if your friend still hasn’t mastered the art of tying a bow tie. You can tie it around your neck, unbutton it, and refasten it to your friend. Make sure this golf-inspired green bow tie becomes part of your major rotation.
