In this innovative day and age, what’s old is always new again. So we’re having a look at some uber-cool and unique takes on classic men’s fashion staples that have been remixed for the modern man. Snatch your plastics and get ready for some Shopping 2.0.
Introducing your new morning wood, gents. (Only this one doesn’t lead to a pile of crumpled tissues and ‘shame face’ when ordering your morning Starbucks crack-in-a-cup.) BÖ by Mansouri is a Vancouver-based line of handcrafted wooden bow ties that are probably the coolest thing to happen to necks since the invention of posture by homo erectus. Classic in concept but contemporary in design, these wooden accoutrements are devilishly suave for the modern man.
With 19 versions in the Spring 2014 Collection (a number raised exponentially thanks to the swish thread palettes available for each), BÖ by Mansouri’s range suits everyone from the GQ prophet to the most insincere of hipsters. Best part? No more fiddling around with a long swath of fabric and trying to maintain an air of sophistication as your hand-tied bow tie slowly cuts off circulation to the head you ought to be thinking with.
These wooden wonders are bringing cred back to the bow tie game, which means your neckwear won’t be associated with Pee-wee Herman and public displays of self-love a la Paul Reubens. (Sartorial sacrilege!)
BÖ by Mansouri… a novel concept for a remixed world.
