Wear more bows and neckties this year. The world around us is changing quickly and casual dress has become the norm. This has been great for our brand, Salmon Cove, because we specialize in classic wovens that stand the test of time. But one of our office goals this year is to have our sales, customer service and business development teams dress up with a bow or necktie – especially for our weekly office happy hour.
Two of our favorite neck wear brands outside of our own are located right here in Chicago. One is Bird Dog Bay by Steve Mayer and other by the Berre brothers called Artfully Disheveled, both available online.
While shopping online is easy, don’t forget about your local men’s store , which is a great place to shop for your husband or son. MH Frank, located in Clemson, SC on College Avenue is our favorite locally owned shop. It is a wonderful place to stop when we head south to avoid the Chicago winter for a few weeks.
A final thought, make sure every guy in your house can tie a bow tie. At some point he will need this skill for a black tie fundraiser, wedding or an SEC football game.
