And they look pretty amazing.

It’s one of the many brands that makes me wish—if only for a second—that I was a guy, or that I was a girl who could pull off wearing a pocket square. Armstrong & Wilson‘s collection of bow ties, tie-ties and pocket squares is like a garden party in a box, all pastel plaids and rainbow paisleys—for summer at least. (Oh, and speaking of their summer squares, you can get them all for 40 percent off here. But I digress…)

A peek at A&W’s Instagram reveals a star fan base: LeBron James, Al Roker, The Roots’s Black Thought, Derrick Brooks, London Fletcher, Michael Smith, Chris Bosh. And Bosh is such a fan that he’s collaborating on a tie collection with them.




The collection, adorably called 'Mr. Nice Tie,' is set to launch this fall. The line will include five ties and five bow ties, all co-designed by the perenially dapper basketball star. See more updates as they roll in on the collection's Twitter page, and start prepping your wish lists now.
