Knit Ties & Wooden Ties...

With summer approaching, it's a good idea for the manly man to switch up his look for Southern soirees and shindigs. One way to do this is with a knit tie...

The knit tie, made in silk or linen, is a nice summer option. Billy Reid makes the above- all of which would look amazing with a white button down.   

Sid Mashburn and Ledbury have some incredible color options as well that beautifully complement the bright days of summer. 

For those who like to mix things up a bit, a wooden bow tie offers a nice change of pace. Created by Adam Teague and Tim Pasley of Tulsa, Oklahoma, these ties are unique conversation pieces that add a modern flair to a man's attire.   

 

Adam and Tim craft the ties themselves from various hardwoods such as walnut, bocote, canary and zebrawood. 

With over two dozen to choose from, there's pretty much a bow tie for any outfit- or customize your own here.
