Super Mario is the new black (bow tie). Online store Birties has created a series of printed bow ties that feature colourful images from pop culture. The collection includes bow ties inspired by Doctor Who, Star Wars, Van Gogh, and even Mrs. Fields.
I’ve never worn a bow tie in my life, but if I was to, this is where I’d get one. Nicholas Ruiz is a Queens-based artist who handcrafts limited-edition bow ties. Each piece focuses on a specific theme. Email him to snatch one up quick (if he has any left!)
