Tag: Southern bow ties

One of our favorite parts about creating the Southern Weddings for High Cotton Bow Tie Collection was that we got to focus on and celebrate our Southern beaus! It’s not often that we get to create something specifically for men or shine a spotlight on them in our photo shoots — our groomsmen reader models were surprised when our “super secret shoot” put them directly in front of the camera!

Creating this bow tie line with the help of High Cotton was certainly a labor of love, and studded with many tips and expert knowledge from the High Cotton owners, Judy and James. Take a peek into what went into creating each of these bow ties, and our fun photo shoot with Anna Routh!

Like most projects at SW, we started with an inspiration board, pulling together the colors we wanted to bring to life, and the Southern style we wanted the collection to evoke. It was important to us that each bow tie represented a bit of the South and its personalities — from classic blue stripes to cheeky coral check — and that we could envision our own beaus happily wearing each one.

Working with High Cotton is truly like being invited into the family! Thank goodness for Judy and her son, James, who traded dozens of emails, thread, and fabric swatches with us as we narrowed down our choices. Once we decided on patterns, we then sprung into color options. As a designer who lives for nuances in color, this was the hard part! For example, the blue couldn’t be too cool or too warm, the gold had to be yellow enough to read as gold, but not too yellow that it wouldn’t be a classic neutral color.

With lots of patience from the High Cotton team, we finally made our decisions! High Cotton ordered our fabric from all over the world — madras from weavers in India, silk from the same weavers that work with Hermès — and sent them to a local North Carolina manufacturer to be sewn.

Seeing the bows ties in person for the first time was like a blast of spring! Each of the colors was just what we were looking for, and we were happily surprised that many of them matched various bridesmaid dress swatches from this year’s collections. Don’t you agree that High Cotton’s suit-donning mannequin looks handsome in his coral check bow tie?

After picking up our brand new bow ties, our photographer, Anna, and I headed to The Bradford for a photo shoot debuting the goods, crossing our fingers that the forecast for rain wouldn’t be true!

After a few sprinkles of rain upon our arrival, the sun came out in full force, giving us plenty of light indoors to prep.

Meristem Floral created a few different boutonniere options to represent each bow tie’s personality, plus an amazing bouquet for our bridesmaids to carry! We loved using them throughout the shoot and then taking them home afterward to put in bud vases :)

I busted out my bow tying skills (usually only handy at our launch parties) to style some flat shots, while Ashley Mooney gussied up the gals and the gents got dressed.

(Don’t know how to tie a bow tie yet? Stay tuned — we’ve got you covered!)

Y’all, these gents we’re killin’ it! While the guys don’t normally get a ton of camera time, each of our models shined, beamed, and posed like pros. Lucky for us, Anna’s also a blast to work with — making everyone laugh easily and feel totally comfortable.

It was an amazing day for a shoot, leaving Jess and I marveling at the weather and the amazing vendors and readers we get to work with.

    I am loving all of the bright yellow ones. They are perfect.

  2. avatar Ali Cline reply

    They are ALL calling to me in a way! So bright and fun! Guess I’d have to pick the tealish blue striped one if I had to though!

  3. avatar Kristyn M reply

    Seersucker in any color!

  4. avatar Megan reply

    I love the Mint Julep bowtie! I am getting married the weekend after the Kentucky Derby and mint juleps are the drink of choice!

  5. avatar Elizabeth @ HobbyLobbyist reply

    I am a sucker for a southern guy in a bow tie! My guy would be happy with any of these options, but I am drawn to the second one from the bottom in the left column– the purplish/blue plaid. Thanks for sharing these with your readers!

  6. avatar emily reply

    I like the 14th one in the left column.

  7. avatar Anna reply

    I love the red and navy with polka dots!!

  8. avatar Lauren reply

    Y’all I LOVE the green seersucker Bowtie! It would be perfect for my to be groom in our pink and green southern wedding (eek less than 10 months). Carolina here we come!

  9. avatar Jenna reply

    I think he would love them all. :)

    But since he is quite the bow tie man I would say second from the bottom right or any of the yellows.

  10. avatar amanda reply

    Being from the south you definitely have to represent your Alma Mater and my fiance would look totally dapper in the red gingham or polka dot bow tie to represent NC State!!! (How bout that win Saturday?!) I love those two the most!! SO cute! I also think the red and white floral is so sweet!!

  11. avatar Ashleigh reply

    LOVING the gingham bow tie or the blue/green checked one (5th from the top)! We just got engaged (eeek! I’m getting MARRIED!) and are trying to decide on our colors and ties vs. bow ties so this would certainly help with the decision making as well as making my groom-to-be look handsome while we decide!

  12. avatar Shelby reply

    So many daper bow ties! Although, I must say my eyes are drawn to that blue gingham beauty. What a more southern way to bring out my beau’s blue eyes than with gingham!?

    congrats on V5 ladies! can’t wait to add the fifth to my collection!

  13. avatar Damaris Mia reply

    Oooo! I love both of the skinny ties! (the light blue and peach one). Can’t wait for the magazine!

  14. avatar Graham reply

    I’d take them all :)…but I do need some more green in my life…4th one from the top left = AMAZING! :)

  15. avatar Larissa reply

    The Mint Julep bowtie is just adorable!

  16. avatar Courtney Cross reply

    They are just adorable! I would say anything red would be perfect for my husband! I see a few Southern Proper ones in the photos, these are my husbands favorite!

  17. avatar Carrie M reply

    They are all so beautiful, but I do love those bright red ones!

  18. avatar Allison reply

    My man has been wanting a diamond tipped bow tie for a while now! The green stripped one would look wonderful on him! The bottom right bow tie also has his name written all over it.

  19. avatar Meredith @ Map & Menu reply

    What fun! I love the any of the blue or navy ties with stripes!

  20. avatar Kelsey reply

    I would love to win the light blue seersucker bow tie! It’s is one of his favorite colors, brings out his eyes, and works perfectly for Tarheel football games!!

  21. avatar Julie reply

    Carolina Blue- can’t get better than that!

  22. avatar Kelsey Lou reply

    These ties are DIVINE! I married my sweet hubs Evan in June and we are set to attend a bunch more weddings for our sweet friends this Fall! I am dying over the red/orange & blue medallion beau second from the bottom right! He would look oh so dapper in it!

  23. avatar Sydney H reply

    I love the tiny plaid green and white bow tie, for my boyfriend!

  24. avatar Kelly reply

    My Southern gent loves all things houndstooth (to my UTK-loving chagrin, roll tide…) — so that first one on the top left corner would make him swoon!!

  25. avatar Rachel reply

    I’m an artist, and any of the peachy pinks or yellows are lovely…they’re such fresh, bright hues. Any of the peaches would be really pretty paired with cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses.

  26. avatar Kelly reply

    I absolutely love the pink and green striped one! My Fiance would love this!

  27. avatar Taylor reply

    THIS IS SO HARD! I love all the plaids…ginghams….seersucker…ahh the bright yellows the mellow blues! But I do have to say…. the fiance would probably love the houndstooth bow-tie the best!!

  28. avatar Anna reply

    LOVE, love, love those teal blue striped ties, and the yellow gingham of course! Early Christmas gift for the boy? I think so!! –can’t wait for V5 :)

  29. avatar Melissa Vause reply

    I love love love the green seersucker!

  30. avatar Caitlin reply

    I love the pink and white bow tie! So cute!

  31. avatar Carolyn reply

    I love the light blue tie! My honey has blue eyes and I think it’d be perfect for him!!

  32. avatar Katie reply

    The red plaid pattern would be perfect for my hub’s black tie Christmas party…and I love the blue/green checked print right across the “aisle” from it….I could definitely plan my Easter dress around that beauty!!!

  33. avatar Lindy reply

    I love them all! I think my husbands favorite would be that teal gingham tie though! So fun! he would be thrilled with such a fun and southern prize!

  34. avatar Elise reply

    They’re all adorable, but the blue bow ties that are sixth, seventh, and eighth from the bottom in the left column are my favorites!

  35. avatar Amanda reply

    I love love love the plaid blue and grey neck tie, but they are all so colorful and fun!

  36. avatar Ashley reply

    I LOVE that plaid blue necktie! My fiancé would look so handsome sporting that at our shower coming up :) it matches his eyes perfectly!

  37. avatar Emily T reply

    Loving the classic simplicity of the blue seersucker for my favorite guy. :)

  38. avatar Paige reply

    I think that those yellow/gold ones are amazing! especially for my App State loving Fiancé…and the fact that our colors incorporate our love of our colleges into the design! Just got engaged and am so excited about V5!

  39. avatar Jenna Lea reply

    love the navy diagonal stripe, simple and versatile

  40. avatar Natalie reply

    So hard to pick, they are all so fun! My fiancé would most likely wear the blue seersucker stripe one but is that a purple one with penguins that I see?! LOVE.

  41. avatar sarah der reply

    omg I love them all!!!!! But maybe number 9 from the top, that lovely aqua one!

  42. avatar Christina Setser reply

    The green with the cotton on it. I will be using cotton in my flower arrangements. My wedding is in Charleston, South Carolina on March, 16, 2013. I went to College of Charleston and loved all the southern charm and can not wait to have my southern wedding there. Christina Setser

  43. avatar Emily reply

    Either the lime green with navy stripes or the orange and white seersucker – both would compliment our wedding colors perfectly!

  44. avatar Laura reply

    I would love to get my hubby into the blue madras tie! I’d have a harder time with a bowtie unless it was orange.

  45. avatar Courtney Porter {Dogwood Events} reply

    I love all of the orange and red shades!

  46. avatar Courtney reply

    I love them all! If I had to pick I’d pick the madras bright color one!

  47. avatar jen reply

    bow ties are awesome! i love that dark blue one with the tiny white spots all over!

  48. avatar Kathryn reply

    So many great ties! I really like the red gingham, the pink and green stripe, the green one with cotton bolls, and the blue and green gingham. Great giveaway!

  49. avatar Emily reply

    Oh man, all of them? But I think my man, a soon to be UNC alum, would look quite dapper in the Tarheel blue. :o)

  50. avatar Katie reply

    I am OBSESSED with the bowtie 7th from the top in the first column. My bridesmaids are wearing J Crew “Dusty Shale” dresses for my April wedding and I have been having the toughest time finding the perfect bow tie that matches the girls dresses. This one looks PERFECT and adds in another pop of color which I love!!

    Even if I wasn’t selected as a winner…could someone kindly tell me who makes this bow tie? It is amazing!!!

    Love Love Love!

    • avatar Nicole reply

      Hey Katie! The bow tie 7th from the top on the right column is made by Mr. Mustache Bow Tie Co!

  51. avatar Ann reply

    I love them all! I’m getting married next June and my future hubby will be wearing a seersucker suit. We are looking for a good bow tie to coordinate with his suit :)

  52. avatar Erika reply

    I’m a sucker for anything polka dot, especially a bow tie!!

  53. avatar Kristy reply

    Any of the blue ones :)

  54. avatar Danielle reply

    I love the mint julep bowtie! We are getting married the day of the Kentucky Derby, and it would be so handsome for my groom! Any of the green shades are great though!

  55. avatar Jillian Babbel reply

    i LOVE the cream and green bowtie and would have my groomsmen wear it!

  56. avatar Christina Setser reply

    I am planning on using cotton stems in my floral arrangements and the green bow ties with cotton would be great. My wedding is in Charleston,South Carolina on March 16,2013. I graduated from College of Charleston and love the southern charm of the city. Me and my mom thought the green cotton bow ties would be great. I can not wait for my southern wedding. Thank you so much. Christina Setser

  57. avatar Sue Hawks reply

    I like that snappy lime green tie with the stripe. It would look fabulous on my new son-in-law, (Kyle, a Southern Monogram Wedding Blog from May 5 2012 wedding). He is a lawyer in Elizabethtown, NC and all Southern gentlemen lawyers need to make a fashion statement!

  58. avatar Adam Gilbert reply

    I’m partial to that purple plaid number :-)

  59. avatar ashley valis reply

    The gray with white dots is to die for! I am getting married out side in may, and this will blend in with our blue/gray/green theme perfectly!

  60. avatar Laura reply

    I’m a sucker for the seersucker ones :)

  61. avatar Lauren reply

    I love them all!!!!!!!

  62. avatar Sarah reply

    I am loving the tie with the light blue check design!

  63. avatar Sarah H reply

    I love bowties! If I had to pick just one, it has to be the orange plaid.

  64. avatar Christina Setser reply

    I will be getting married on March 16,2013 in Charleston,South Carolina. I graduated from College of Charleston and love the southern charm of the city. I will be using cotton in my floral arrangements and I love the green cotton bow tie and that is one of the colors I will be using. It would be great for the wedding. I love your web site with so many cool ideas. Thank you very much. Christina Setser

  65. avatar Zachry reply

    My fiance is in love with this blog, and she directed me to this contest! My favorite bowtie is 18 down from the left. I would really like it – thanks for doing this!

  66. avatar Tonda reply

    I am loving all of them, so bright and fun! My favorite is the 5th one down the blue and green one!

  67. avatar JOANNA GOULAH reply

    I absolutley love the light green stripe bow tie (1st column 2nd row). It is very versatile with different colored suits, very simple but elegant

  68. avatar Jenny reply

    So hard to choose….I think the one that best embodies our wedding theme is the bow tie 2nd from the bottom on the right, a combination of southern sophistication for Charleston where my fiance is a chef and English hunt country for Charlottesville where I am in school at UVA.

  69. avatar Kelly reply

    Either the solid yellow or yellow diagonal stripe tie would be a wonderful surprise for my groom for our yellow and gray oceanfront wedding in May! Something about a pop of yellow against a gray suit will add a little spring sunshine to my groomsmen!

  70. avatar Jeanie reply

    They’re all amazing! The green bow tie with the thin blue diagonal stripes would be perfect for our garden themed wedding next year.

  71. avatar Eric Harris reply

    the green and salmon bow tie is swaggarific. love it.

    I love the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund Set. It would look amazing with navy bridesmaids dresses and blush peonies.

  2. avatar Marie reply

    About a month ago I was in Athens while a local shop was having a High Cotton sale. I was giddy when I saw the monogrammed cummerbund.

    Being a University of Georgia graduate, I have to go with the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set. Seersucker and Red!!! How can get any more ‘Southern’ than that? I do have a second favorite for those times when wearing game day colors aren’t suitable: Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund Set- It is a PERFECT spring time set.

  3. avatar Stacy reply

    Love the Soft Lavender Mini Check Cummerbund Set

  4. avatar Liz reply

    For me the “Endzone Orange Gingham” cummerbund set is the epitome of the South because I live in Big Orange Country (Knoxville, TN) and SEC football is a way of life here – the endzones at UT are checkerboard orange and white! Go vols!

  5. avatar Mandy reply

    What could be more Southern than an honoring little college football tradition. I love the “Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set” because the colors represent mine and my fiance’s Alma Mater… The University of Georgia! Go Dawgs!

  6. avatar Sarah reply

    I love the Carolina blue stripe set! Is there anything more Southern than a Chapel Hill wedding? No!
    Also, the model is one of my boyfriend’s fraternity brothers- love it!

  7. avatar Katie reply

    I absolutely adore the the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund Set…it could only be more southern with the addition of a monogram! However, I do love Clemson so the End Zone Orange is also near and dear to my heart!

  8. avatar Kelly reply

    Definitely like the Black Houndstooth. Southern and sharp.

  9. avatar Sarah Wright reply

    I think the Soft Carolina Blue Stripe Cummerbund Set represents the South the most – our Carolina Blue skies and the perfect combo of white and blue!

  10. avatar Shea reply

    I think the nautical blue is classic! and of course I love a plaid!

  11. avatar Linden reply

    Could anything be more Southern than a madras Cumberbund set? I love it! It just reminds me of the South- gentlemen who can dress up and still appear laid-back, friendly, and not stuffy. Adore this! It would make for an awesome Charleston wedding… I can just see it!

  12. avatar Erin Butler reply

    I love the Orange and Navy Tattersall Cummerbund Set. It reminds me of Sundress-Saturdays spent in the Fall at Ben Hill Griffin stadium cheering for the Gators :)

  13. avatar jcristg reply

    I can’t pass up the chance to pick the red and black – Carolina – cummerbund set. Go Cocks!

  14. avatar Amanda reply

    Definitely the Crimson Gingham Cummerbund Set. It’s picnic table-like red and white checkers reminds me of summers in Tennessee. I can picture this cummerbund around the waist of my handsome fiance sitting with me on a blanket in the sun, eating a picnic together. It brings me back to the summer sounds of June bugs and the humidity of summer in the south.

  15. avatar Courtney reply

    I love the Crimson gingham set! All of them, especially the seersucker and the gingham patters were very Southern!

  16. avatar Lindsay Weidenhammer reply

    I think the Nautical Navy Stripe Cummerbund Set looks MOST southern charm!

  17. avatar Lori reply

    I love High Cotton Ties. My fiance and I have been looking at their website lately trying to decide on bowties for the beaus in the wedding party! I think the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund is the epitome of southern and would be perfect monogrammed!

  18. avatar Clara G reply

    Although I’m tempted to pick the black houndstooth because it is soooo BAMA, I have decided to pick the Soft Carolina Blue Stripe Cummerbund Set. This color blue screams old south. The cummerbund and bow tie make me think of a good ole fashioned southern gentleman. It is classic, romantic, and perfectly soutern!! I love it!

  19. avatar Elyse G. reply

    Nothing is more southern than the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set. It’s seersucker!

  20. avatar Dayton reply

    I think the Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set truly emphasizes the look of the south. It encompasses the University of Georgia’s colors with the uncanning style of a true southern gentleman that is best epitomized in the great state of Georgia.

  21. avatar Emily reply

    Don’t they all scream “Southern”? But I do love the Aqua Seersucker Gingham!

  22. avatar Amanda reply

    The Aqua seersucker gingham absolutely emphasizes the south the most. Every Easter Sunday as far as I can remember all the men would stroll into church with their blue seersucker suits and I always knew spring was here! Easter picnic after service with fried chicken, fried okra, and seersucker as far as the eye can see.

  23. avatar Linda reply

    I love the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Cummerbund Set. Perfect for a spring or summer wedding! Love High Cotton Ties (and headbands, too!)

  24. avatar Jessica reply

    I love the Carolina Blue Gingham Cummerbund Set! What says southern more than the color of the beautiful blue sky on a spring afternoon in North Carolina in combo with gingham?!?

  25. avatar Kristen Cowan reply

    I love the Carolina blue stripe set! Screams southern gentleman at a college football tailgate! :)

  26. avatar Allison reply

    nothing says Southern like the Endzone Orange cummerbund and tie set. Why? because who else than a Southern gent would sport a cummbebund and tie to a Saturday football game? Go CLEMSON Tigers!! :)

  27. avatar Kelsey reply

    My fiance and I are so excited about this contest! Judy and James are the best! My favorite is the Carolina Blue Gingham. There’s nothing more Southern that a crisp pastel in amazing pattern like gingham. It matches the sky on a beautiful Southern day and starts the night off with your gentleman looking and feeling good. And can it get any better than the monogram on the side?!

  28. avatar Jess reply

    Durham Ranger Madras Bow Tie most def!!! love the colors and its also Miami Dolphins :) So proud to be Southern!

  29. avatar Cris reply

    Definitely the Carolina Blue! All Southerners love a Carolina blue sky!

  30. avatar Haley reply

    Nothing screams South more than the Blue Violet and Pink Paisley Cummerbund Set! It combines the rich history which both the South and paisley print have in common with the fun, contemporary colors of blue and pink!!

  31. avatar heather reply

    I definitely think the Aqua Seersucker Gingham Cummerbund Set is the most southern, plus if we win it, I have the perfect dress to match him! ;)

  32. avatar Lauren Dunaway reply

    Although it has Nantucket in the name I think the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Set is the epitome of southern! Here in New Orleans, people from out of town assume seersucker = southern!

  33. avatar Katherine reply

    I LOVE the Pale Pink Check Cummerbund set! What’s more southern than a man in pink?

  34. avatar Tony reply

    I think that the Nantucket Red Seersucker Stripe Cummerbund Set epitomizes the South. It’s a classic pattern with a modern, striking color. The pattern gives it that nautical feel from the coast, but the faded red tones in the seersucker stripe give it that sun faded, relaxed feel I always love. The washed out red tones arn’t too loud, but it speaks and make the wearer stand out from the rest. Also, pale striped sun faded reds with solid, saturated navy tones? It’s a great color combination!

    It’s a quiet breeze of Southern air that isn’t too overpowering, which is why it’s my choice.

  35. avatar Hannah reply

    I love plaid so how can I not pick the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Print :)

  36. avatar Kate reply

    Durham Ranger Madras is the epitome of the south!

  37. avatar Katie reply

    I LOVE the Endzone Orange. I’m a Clemson girl but that cummerbund just says Southern… it’s the color of Georgia peaches and clay, the color that fills Tennessee, Clemson, Florida, UVA, and Auburn’s stadiums in the fall, a low country sunset sky, and a southerner’s favorite vegetable: macaroni and cheese. And the gingham print just screams comfortable, down home, and real… what every Southern gentleman should be! :)

  38. avatar Brandon reply

    I am a HUGE fan of the Red and Black Tattersall Cummerbund Set. It goes great with a dark tux, but also reminds me and my girlfriend of putting on some red pants, a white oxford, and the bow tie alone at the University of Cincinnati football games. Nothing like bringing up some southern style!

  39. avatar ron payne reply

    On its own, the patchwork madras is my favorite. But with tuxedo, the pink check.

  40. avatar Chris reply

    Even though I’m partial to the UT Endzone Orange, nothing says Southern like the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras. There’s just something about Madras that brings you back to the simpler times.

  41. avatar Daniel Wright reply

    Red and Black, it doesn’t get more southern than Carolina. Goooo Cocks!

  42. avatar Katie reply

    I love the soft Carolina blue stripe set. It just makes me yearn for lazy summer afternoons topped off with a tall glass of lemonade.

  43. avatar Andrew reply

    My favorites are the Carolina Blue Gingham and Cornflower and Mint Green Tattersall Cummerbund sets. If I had to choose one though I think I would have to go with the Carolina Blue Gingham set

  44. avatar Austin reply

    The Carolina Blue Gingham Cummerbund Set takes the cake! I’m a Georgia boy but blue has always been my color. The Carolina Blue is classic and makes a statement of style and purpose while maintaining a quiet dignity.

  45. avatar Andrew reply

    My two favorite are the Carolina Blue Gingham and Cornflower and Mintgreen Tattersall Cummerbund sets but if I had to pick one I would say that the Carolina Blue Gingham represents the south the best.

  46. avatar Bella Michelle reply

    They are wonderful…but I do love that Calhoun Plaid!

  47. avatar Daniel reply

    Love the End Zone orange!

  48. avatar Sarah Gibson reply

    I think the Blue Violet and Pink Paisely set and the Cornflower and Mint Green Tattersall set embody the south the most!

  49. avatar Stevie reply

    The Carolina Blue Gingham and the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras Print are quintessentially southern and are just calling for Charleston weddings and juleps in hand! Southern boys in madras can’t be beat!

  50. avatar Grayson Campbell reply

    By far the Pawtucket Patchwork Madras is the most Southern. Add on a monogram and it doesn’t get anymore Southern. It reminds me of the patch madras shorts my father and uncles used to golf in when I was a little girl
