Oh Mo. Though he’s only ten years old, this Memphis-native is already the perfect example of a sweet Southern gent. He loves his mama, has a larger-than-life personality and he ain’t afraid to rock a bow tie on a daily basis. In 2011, with a love a bow ties but no options that fit his style, he picked up sewing from his granny and got to work making colorful and fun options. A year later, his bow ties can be found on Etsy and have traveled the nation. “It’s so cool that people in other states know about me and my business and wear my bow ties,” said Mo. “Like in New York City and Miami. I can’t believe I have never been to New York but my bow ties have.”
Be sure to pick up a copy of V5 to read Mo’s full interview as well as hear his take on what it means to be a Southern gentleman.
If you think Mo’s bow ties are any indication of what his personality is like, you’re going to love him! Who isn’t falling over for that floral design above?
Mo believes that every Southern gent should have at least one seersucker jacket or pants. We agree.
