When You Are Ready to Graduate from BB
While Brooks Brothers carries a lovely assortment of ties, they do tend to scream boring / accountant / this came from my Dad's closet. While there are certain occasions which call for this attire, most of time you want to show a little more personality than the navy and red stripe. Enter Southern Proper. The downside is that they don't have an eCommerce site YET, but I am holding out hope that the founders, Emilie Claire Henderson and Reagan Elizabeth Hardy, will make it happen eventually. They have a wide variety of fun prints and patterns that will let your personality shine in a silk fabric format. Additionally, for the obsessively matched couple, your headband can match his tie. It's definitely taking it to the next level, but when you are sporting neckware in bright pinks, oranges and blues, it leaves you with one option available: Go big or go home.
