There's just something special about a Southern Boy in a Bow-tie. :) Swanky loooooves 'em.
Two of my friends, Reagan and Emmie, are the founders of Southern Proper ... the Southern counterpart to Vineyard Vines (and sooo much better, if I must say so myself) ...
Southern style accessories for both Beaus & Belles, the collection includes bowties and neckties in fun colors and Southern prints like Just Peachy (which is my fave, obvi), "Southern Drawls" boxer shorts in some of SoPro's most popular prints, classic and clean-cut "Proper Polos" and "Belle Bands" (Magnolia is my look) for the ladies. Custom products are also available (rumor has it there's going to be a special design for Stephanie's -she handles their PR- nuptials next year) and when SoPro's designer Joni recently married Chip (who's the SoPro web guru) the bridesmaid wore bridal sashes in prints identical to the groomsman ties. Now, if that's not as sweet as your grandma's sweet tea then I don't know what is.
This weekend, was the debut of the latest print "Live Oak Pride" and features a signature Georgia Live Oak with a 13-star circle (symbolizes Georgia as the thirteenth colony). To get one for yourself, check out Live Oak Pride or search for the SoPro retailer closest to you. "Live Oak Pride, it's a Georgia Thing. Show your pride, Georgia!"
