The bow tie has shaken off its erstwhile affectations of late and is popping up amid a very current crop of designers with a penchant for all things prep. But why reinvent the wheel when you can cut these classic ties from a cloth that imparts each with a unique sense of history? That’s the approach taken by XOElle, who handcrafts each elegant tie from an “unloved men’s shirt.” Giant floppy bows they’re not. These prim bowties are fit as a fiddle and perfect for a spring fling.
