This year I wanted to go with a St. Patty's Day theme for our March bow ties of the month. Allow me to introduce you to Pinch Me, Harp, and William!

Every year when St. Patrick's Day rolls around, I get an excitement stirring up inside me. I generally spend all day cooking, making a Guinness Beef Stew, some Colcannon (with bacon added, of course), and lots of Irish soda bread. After that, I love to get together with friends, drink, and be merry. Maybe it's my heritage, maybe it's the food (and drink), maybe it's just the color green. I can't say for sure, but I love the day!

Now, let's examine some ways to wear these bad boys...

I built these outfits around the idea of interchangeability; each outfit can use the exact same accessories, pants, and shoes, all you have to do is switch out the shirt and bow tie. For each outfit I wore gray jeans, my green Converse, and a brown watch and belt. Even with those staples, each outfit can have a completely different look and appeal, depending on the occasion.

When I went shopping for fabrics last week, I was looking for an Irish theme, so I decided to take the three colors of the Irish flag (orange, white, and green) and make a bow tie out of each. If I'm completely honest, I had been eyeing this orange fabric for a while and was searching for an excuse to use it; the intricate street grid pattern has always caught my eye and the pastel orange was a perfect fit for the Irish theme. Excuse found.

I went full leprechaun with the outfit and wore William with a green gingham shirt. While a more buttoned up look, the gray jeans and green Converse give this outfit a bit more street appeal, perfect for going out.

I caught my girlfriend wearing an outfit along the lines of what I was going to put together, so I made her model Harp (plus, who say girls can't wear bow ties, am I right?). This bow tie has a very soft floral pattern, which makes it great for Spring, but you have to be careful of what you pair it with. Anything too bold or colorful will blow it out of the water.

A simple pattern shirt (like the blue pinstripe that Juliana is wearing) or a solid in the mid-tone/dark range of the color spectrum should make it pop. Some darker pants and accessories will help this fairer bow tie stand on it's own instead of getting washed out as well.

I call this my 'Paper Boy' outfit; it makes me feel like I should be selling newspapers on a corner downtown. I actually bought the hat from the Jameson Distillery in Ireland, so it was bound to make an appearance in this post. If I were a betting man, I'd say that this is what I'll be wearing come March 17th.

Our obligatory green bow tie, Pinch Me has a beautifully vivid color, so a white shirt was the perfect canvas for it. The textured green also pulls in earth tones from the suspenders and hat, making for a more unified outfit.

Your bow ties are not bad but your website is a mess. It’s been voted worst site all around the web. If you want it redesigned, send us a note. We’re based in Eire, you might find kin.

Good luck.
