It’s simple: Tie The Knot will release a collection of neckwear seasonally, inspired by the founders’ favorite art, fashion, things they see on the street, and things in their living room. Each bow tie will be produced in limited quantity to inspire and promote uniqueness & individuality. All proceeds from the sale of the bow ties will go to various organizations that are in the trenches fighting for the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans every single day.
