Exactly What I Needed!

I wanted the bowties our groomsmen to be wearing to match as closely to the bridesmaids dresses as possible. In comes 1886 Modern Man to the rescue! Not only did it match in color and texture, but the price was great and it was done without me having to worry, which is wonderful when trying to put together an entire wedding.

I definitely recommend 1886 Modern Man to everyone!

The designer behind is me, Cristina. I am a Graphic/Web Designer by trade, but an all out designer through and through. I am constantly building my inventory and I am always finding new fabrics to use for the bow ties I make. YES! I make all these bow ties myself. I have also created the lovely packaging and logo. The bow ties are made to be adjustable so that anyone can wear them AND they are self tie...the 'old school' way. Tying a bow tie may seem daunting at first, but really it's but really it's just as simple as tying the laces on your shoes...just a little prettier.
