K. Cooper Ray of Social Primer is well known for his collaborations with Brooks Brothers, but last Friday he struck out his own and presented his own line during Fashion Week. The full line will include blazers, neck ties and bow ties, but, being Bow Tie Friday, it makes sense to focus on the bow ties. The Alpha Bow Tie from Social Primer by K. Cooper Ray ($75) will be one of the first products you can purchase from this new line.
The bow tie has all the hallmarks of a classic Social Primer bow tie with its made in America craftsmanship and contrasting reversible sides. One side consists of red and white repp stripes while the other features red dots on a blue background. The bow ties are handmade from imported silk and can be tied to have the left and the right sides the same or different. The only drawback is that you’ll have to wait to get your hands on one, as they are only available for pre-order right now and are anticipated to ship on November 15. They say patience is a virtue though.
Also, if you’re a college student, be sure to apply to be a Social Primer Campus Rep.
