Make a Statement of Equality and Style with Gay Pride Bow Ties

When I think of style, class, and high profile events, I have always thought of bow ties. For some reason, they just give me the feeling and look of sophistication, so I have always included one in my outfits for any major event I attend in the past few years. Recently I met Jorge Santana, President of Gay Pride Bow Ties, and he shared with me that he would like people to think of equality when they see, wear, or think of his ties. The mission of his company is to unify people and make a difference in the world.

Gay Pride Bow Tieswere recently at Kansas City Pride, the PFLAG National Convention in Portland, and I’m sure quite a few same-sex weddings. I am so excited to wear mine this fall and winter for the formal events I know I’ll be attending.

The neat thing about these ties is that five dollars from each tie sold is donated to various non profits, depending on the style you purchase. This means you look good and do good at the same time!

Gay Pride Bow Ties are made of fine silk and are high quality pieces to add to any dapper guys wardrobe. With the various styles, there is sure to be one that fits your personality perfectly and there are even pre-made ties for those of us who just can’t get the hang of tying a perfect looking bow tie.

How many of us like to wear something that stands out and makes a statement? I’m sure most of us would love to have a special piece in our collection that will make us look sharp and grab attention wherever we go. Plus in the age of selfies, I must say, Gay Pride Bow Ties make for quite a picture and post! And trust me, they aren’t just for same-sex weddings, you can rock these classy ties at any wedding or event!

When I asked Jorge about what he hopes for for the future of Gay Pride Bow Ties he responded, “The next step is to create the best bow tie for breast cancer and that for every $400 donated it will help 12 women battling breast cancer to get a wig. If people start purchasing the product and don’t care about the name Gay Pride Bow Ties, then we have done our part. We hope to create more bow ties like this in the future.“

How do you wear your pride? Pick one up for yourself and show the world.

The Zaharoff Collection: Future of Men’s Fashion

Shopping for men’s dress clothes isn’t all that exciting really.  There are only so many colors you can choose from, only so many styles available.  Today I had the pleasure of seeing the new Zaharoff men’s clothing collection and meeting George Zaharoff, the man behind the clothes,  in person.  The first thought that came to mind was that men finally have the same opportunity to be unique as women do with their dress clothes. 

The textures are so unique, the styles innovative.  Making a lasting impression just got a whole lot easier.  From the outerwear to the ties and everything in between you can be sure your own personality will have a chance to shine through.  Finally, men can say “I’m not going to wear that same old navy suit.”  Now we can wear clothing people will love to see and textures they may even want to touch. 

The pieces even look amazing dressed down with jeans and the fabrics are completely comfortable.  There is something for every season, every climate, and every personal taste.  The beauty of this clothing is that you can stand out without going over the top or looking ridiculous.  Tonight as I watch some of the Golden Globes, I can’t help but notice that the men tend to look similar unless they go all out to be memorable.  Being memorable usually means wearing torn jeans or and outrageous color that may not even look good on you.  It tends to be memorable in an unfavorable way. 

With the Zaharoff Collection, a man can be memorable in a favorable way with class and dignity.  George has thought of everything even down to a fragrance that screams elegance.  Then there are the accessories such as scarves and cuff links.  Just as with the clothing, the scarves are made from unique textures with designs that will become the signature of the man. 

The best part about seeing the collection today was the opportunity to be shown everything by George himself.  The way he talks about the pieces and the look in his eyes shows you how much he cares about what he is producing.  The quality of the clothes is no mistake and the chances he takes give him the ability to introduce the most innovative clothing out there.  I urge you to check out to find out more about the collection and where you can purchase the line.  For anyone who wants to make a lasting impression, these clothes are for you.  I can assure you that whether at a party or a job interview, people will remember you and may even inquire about where you got your suit.
