Joel Franklin believes the bow tie is a representation of life. The everyday person is a bowtie in its simplistic form. The life of a bow tie begins with fabric. Our detailed hand sewed bow ties go through the same process that people go through in their life – taking form and creating experiences that make you who you are. There comes a time where you make the decision to work towards being successful, on your own terms. The proper folds, creases and adjustments help make the bow tie an elegant accessory you can wear to take any outfit to the next level. The bow tie has the ability to induce many things – confidence, intellectual conversation, and possible connections. We as human beings have that same ability to evolve. The successor is Joel Franklin Collections, the stage where the bow tie now has the ability to bring together cultures, leave the impression of a gentlemen, and most importantly change lives.
