Forage Bow Ties

Forage Bow Ties

Every once a while I stumble upon something in my reader which I get really excited about and can’t resist sharing here with everyone here on Once Wed. When I spotted the new “Forage” line of bow ties from Something’s Hiding in Here it was definitely one of those moments. Shauna and Stephen(the incredible duo behind the infamous “mustache on a stick”) spent months looking for the perfect fabric to create this new line with and I think they did a fabulous job of picking such a fun array of colors and patterns. Forage is coming to The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco at the end of July and I cannot wait to see the display they come up with for the launch of these lovelies!

    Bow ties! Love it! And the cards are perfectly adorable – I want to frame one for my living room! But I also want to enter the giveaway :) I have been trying to find the perfect fabric bow tie for my hubby-to-be to wear on our wedding day and I feel that this assortment is everything I ever hoped and dreamed of to circle his lovable neck :)

    My fiance is still trying to decide on bow tie vs straight tie. I prefer bow ties, and giving him one before he makes the big decision might help sway him in my direction! Oh, and our colors are orange and blue, such a great match for the beautiful pallette in the Forage collection.

    I endured countless lectures on “Louie I Kahn” and “Corbu” in college and could never enter a drawing for a tie inspired by either…thankfully these ties also feature Eames, who is much more my modern style. My groom will surely not like them, but my brother would LOVE one for the groom’s party. Thanks for the tip!

    SO….. I”m an actor, and for one of my favorite shows that I’ve performed in, I had to learn how to tie a bow tie on a man in the show with me while I was singing a pretty difficult song. :) It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but I was SO proud of myself.

    It is my dream to be able to tie my man’s bow tie for him on the day of the wedding. Silly I know, but it would be such a dear moment.

    Cheers to all those ladies who love their men in bow ties!

I am originally from outside of San Francisco, but now live 2000+ miles away from my family in Birmingham, ALABAMA where I am going to college!~ Would love this wonderful bowtie for my wonderful boyfriend… he needs the practice with them! He had to go “tie-less” to the last wedding we attended b/c he couldnt tie it quite right. :( He would rock it like none other!

    thought i’d say: there is something romantic in tie gifting. we present our dads with ties growing up and i think the general consensus is they are somehow a boring convention, easy & one-size-fits all. but it really isn’t so. the tie is an emblem! masculinity. refinement! the man to whom you give a tie is a man of whom you are endlessly proud. we waive our kerchief in the wind, they march off wearing our colors, dangling diamond knotted at the adam’s apple, neat bow corralling the collar. when it’s the boy you love, it’s added sweet to think it ribbons off the day’s business, later loosened to a swim trunk summer. these candy stripes hearken to the sunbleached chaise lounge, to the little surfer girl. i have just the fellow.

    What a FINE masterpiece. This how we change the world — one bow tie at a time. “Truth – beauty – kindness, we can never get enough of. The Forage bow ties are the beauty part and the best I have experienced yet.
    I received one from my daughter for a present. It feels good tying, it lays just here you put it and it says HELLO – talk to me all while smiling at the recipient. How can you resist conversation?
    I wear eleven other bow ties; none compare to the Forage tie. Life is good. Thank you Shauna and Stephen.
