What’s not to love about a man in a bow tie? They’re confident, they’re bold, they’re lovably nerdy. Think Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, James Bond… These guys and their iconic bow ties know smart style.
Our friends at Two Guys Bow Ties — a Tulsa-based neckwear duo — are offering up the traditionally textiled ties in a whole new way: unique handcrafted wooden bow ties! These neck adornments are a modern twist on an old favorite, a new way to distinguish a classic style.
So we want to hear what you think — and then reward you for it! Over the next two weeks, we’ll be giving away a couple of bow ties on our Facebook fan page. Here’s how to enter the contest:
To win a Two Guys bow tie head over to our Facebook page, pick out your favorite bow tie and leave a comment on the photo letting us know which tie is your favorite, and how and where you would wear it. Would you dress it down with denim and plaid, wear it to your wedding next month, give it to your dad? Give us as many suggestions as you like! We’ll pick our favorite comments and announce the winners on Facebook on February 22nd.
Please give Two Guys a follow on Facebook and Twitter. Shop our selection of Two Guys’ wooden bow ties here.
Let the bow tie fun begin!
We’ve teamed up with PACT — the makers of our revolutionary organic cotton socks & undies for a cause — Whole Kids Foundation and Indiegogo to build a sustainable urban garden here in Oklahoma City that will provide increased access to healthy food and empower adults and children to actively experience how food is grown — from seed to plate.
Our urban garden is already growing at Crutcho Public School, a K-8 school on the east side of Oklahoma City that serves close to 300 children. The garden is small — just 4 raised beds and a small hoophouse (a homemade greenhouse) — but through the efforts of Crutcho staff, the garden produced it’s first crop last summer: tomatoes, basil, melons and peppers. With plans for expansion and hands-on student education through a partnership with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Urban Harvest program, the Crutcho School garden is poised to become an important community tool for connecting parents and kids to real food and encouraging a lifetime of healthy eating habits.
So this is where you come in! We’re raising $2500 by February 28th to help provide the students and teachers at Crutcho School with all the tools they need to see their garden grow into a vibrant community resource. And we’re asking you to join us by making a donation, as little as $10, to our campaign on their behalf!
You’ll be rewarded for your contribution with some super-comfy, eco-friendly goodies from PACT Apparel, plus you can feel good knowing that your financial gift to the Crutcho School garden is going to be supported by ongoing resources from Whole Kids Foundation — like organic seeds and online garden planning tools — and educational activities through RFBO’s Urban Harvest program..
So check out our Crutcho School garden campaign and help change take root in our community by making a contribution today!

We love fall for so many reasons: an abundance of pumpkin and apple treats, décor and smells; the gorgeous weather and changing leaves; and of course, new styles. At the shop we’re celebrating fall by adding some great new accessories and clothes that are perfect for pumpkin-patching, thanksgiving dinners and leaf-fighting. So this week, we decided to head out to Automobile Alley for a little seasonal photo shoot. From woodsy candles to crocheted bow ties, we’re excited to help you complete your autumn wardrobe, and hope to inspire you with our take on fall fashion. Send us a tweet or Facebook post to tell us what you think of our cooler weather looks!
