We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes and wanting to share this with you for quite some time….so we’re thrilled to finally be unveiling our tie collection today! We so appreciate the love, encouragement and support you showed for our other collabs that we decided our next collab would help you address a common need many of you pointed out to us – wedding attire for the guys. Specifically, the lack of options grooms, groomsmen and even wedding guests have at their disposal to create fashionable and fun ensembles for the wedding and it’s surrounding events.
So….after listening to your feedback and then being introduced to the super sweet couple behind Neck & Tie Company, it felt like kismet and a line of ties made perfect sense for us! In the GWS x Neck & Tie Collection we’re giving you a way to inject GWS style into any wedding with truly quality handmade products at a good price point.
Why are we so excited to partner with Neck & Tie Company?
1. All their neckties, bow ties and pocket squares are made here in the US!
2. Each tie is hand crafted by talented artisans to ensure quality.
3. They give back. A portion of every sale goes to a local organization, charity, or person. This month they are supporting Chan (6) + Narith (3) – two brothers from Cambodia – with SEAPC.
4. We love working with other husband + wife companies. Micah + Lish are passionate, hard-working and want to bring more style for the guys out there – all of which we love!
Ok, so, enough about why we created the line….I know you guys really just want to see what we came up with!
When designing our collection, we wanted to give you a way to play with prints, textures and colors to give you a variety of ways to play off of your wedding design and add some fun moments to the guys attire. We know some of the guys will want something more subtle or may be afraid to go too bold, so we also included a couple classic chambray ties, a dark navy tie that can easily be dressed up or down and some bolder florals on black. Our GWS collection includes SIX prints and they are each available as a necktie, bow tie and pocket square.
To help you better envision how to incorporate our line into your day, we styled a bunch of looks at one of our fave hotels here in West Hollywood, Palihouse (if you’ve not stopped by yet, what are you waiting for? The food at Mardi – their restaurant – is SO GOOD!). After seeing the looks below, we hope you guys will be as excited as us and ready to use one of our rad prints for your big day – or maybe even your next wedding you attend as a guest.
We hope you love the collection + can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
Love how Brad is effortlessly rocking our GWS Evening Primrose Necktie – as well as our GWS Evening Primrose Bowtie! Paired with an Italian Vintage Bouclé Blazer and light blue shirt (both from Indochino), along with his own black jeans, this look is SO crazy stylish….seriously, what bride wouldn’t want to see this waiting for them down the aisle?
If you are looking for something a bit more subtle but still fun, Jordan’s look is for you. We love our GWS Floral Chambray in Sky Necktie paired with a dark blue vest, blue linen shirt and dark denim, it is a great casual look. And this print also comes in grey – gotta love that!
Oh, and how perfect is that gorgeous boutonnière by The Bloom of Time?!
Looking for a bit more formal look? Go for a nice blue suit, it is THE hot color right now and we made sure our ties would work well with that color…and they look SO good, right?!
Blue suit paired with our GWS Evening Primrose Necktie? Yes!
If you are looking for a look for your groomsmen, we love the idea of the same print, but have the groom in a bow tie and the groomsmen in ties (or vice versa!). We love the look of blue suits in varying shades for a more natural look.
So, are you more of a Necktie fan or a Bow Tie fan?! Would love to hear in the comments :)
Big shout out also to Mobile Bridal for making sure our guys’ hair was looking on point!
Want to have your groomsmen with a more casual vibe? We love the look of a mix of vests, button down shirts, dark denim, neckties and bow ties. Our Floral Chambray print comes in both blue and grey and looks pretty great mixed, right?!
The GWS Floral Noir Neck Tie looks SO GOOD with a chambray shirt, right?! Imagine how rad a bunch of guys in denim and florals would look!
Who else is ready for fall?? This look just screams fall! Bobby is wearing our GWS Floral Chambray in Grey Neck Tie with this shirt + blazer from Indochino. Love it paired with some gray skinny jeans.
Textured Blazer + Plaid + Floral Tie = WIN in our book!
So hard for us to pick a fave!! Which look are you loving? Are you going for a more formal or causal look for your groom? We’d love to hear from you and really hope you enjoy the collection! This was so fun to collaborate on and we can’t wait to see our GWS ties show up in some of your weddings real soon!
Big thanks also to this team:
