Happy National Bow Tie Day you #menswear fans!

The bow tie has had its highs and lows lately, from connoisseurs clamoring for ties designed by an 11-year-old Memphis boy to Justin Bieber getting into a fight over an H&M bow tie. And of course Modern Family star Jessie Tyler Ferguson is attaching the bow tie trend to a good cause with his Tie The Knot campaign, which benefits marriage equality.

The point is, the classic bow tie isn’t going anywhere: NewNowNext is here to help you update your neckwear drawer with bold prints, patterns and styles to take you from summer to fall. These ties work for the office, in the cocktail hour, at a formal affair and even that Labor Day barbecue.
