Kentucky Derby Inspiration:
Forage Bow Ties


Photos: Forage

Each year, the Kentucky Derby inspires a nationwide craving for big, bold hats—not unlike a recent Royal Wedding—but there might just be another fashion lesson from horse racing's biggest day. We can't help but think that mingled amongst the attention-grabbing headwear last weekend were some equally brilliant bow ties. Derby hats, mint juleps, bow ties—is there anything more Southern? For a touch of style south of the Mason-Dixon, we love Forage's bow tie collection, designed by Shauna and Stephen of Something's Hiding In Here. The hand-crafted collection is available in a range of bright colors in check, plaid, and madras patterns. Grooms with summertime nuptials on the horizon would do well to sport one of these ties with a lightweight suit, like in this wedding featured on the Something's Hiding In Here blog. —Phillip B.
