Southern-Proper-Giveaway

Hello loves!  I’m ridiculously excited today to be giving away two bow ties from the charming Southern Proper.  As you may remember from our Plucky Pioneer interview with founder Emmie Howard, we’re big fans!  The first bow tie is yellow with duck boots and the second lavender with trout (valued at $55 each).  To enter please visit the Southern Proper website and then leave a comment below about which lucky man in your life (beau, hubby, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, neighbor, friend…) you would gift the bow tie to and why.  I will randomly select two winners at noon EST on Friday!  Good luck!

P.S. If you aren’t already, we’d be honored if you became friends with Southern Proper and The Neo-Traditionalist on Facebook ; )

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who entered!  The winners are Jessie (#9) and Sarah (#36).  They have been contacted by email! xx

    These adorable ties would look amazing on my brother! He’s relocated to Norton, MA from southern CA. His style is an eclectic mix of laid back and preppy. He would look so great in these!

  2. KateMcG

    The new guy in my life would look oh so handsome in the lavender bow tie- he’s a good ole southern boy and loves to fish.

    My husband- who while living in Boulder, CO endured many odd looks and questions (Did you make that?) while sporting his favorite bow ties!

    Hi Katie!

    I just found your blog today! Yay!!

    I have been a huge fan of SP since they first launched their brand several years ago. Emmie and Reagan are amazing business women, and such southern ladies!

    I would definitely gift the bow tie to my dad! He is my favorite southern gentleman and would adore one of these ties!

    My thirteen year old brother! He’s growing into such a handsome young man. He’s exploring his style – some days he dresses like a skater and will only say “yo”; then, the next day he’s very preppy and will hold doors open for me.

    Nick will DEFINITELY need bow ties with animal prints on them now that he’s almost a doctor. Purple is his color for sure.

    WOW! these are great! I’ve always loved their website. Well, if I won I would gift the bow tie to my dashing Scottish husband for his birthday on November 2nd! He is supporting me emotionally and financially through law school, what a gem!! Then I would go and promptly buy the matching headband for myself :)

    LOVE Southern Proper. I am sure my husband would look dashing in these while either shooting a wedding or working his main job as a pastor. Of course my favorite place for him to wear it would be out on a date with me!

    I would give it to my sweet boyfriend ethan. he’s a small town boy but loves to dress up and would look absolutely darling in a bow tie..even if he doesn’t think so! He is one of the most darling people I have ever met and I just know that I have a dress to match perfect for our formal together :)

    My husband is the consummate bow tie aficionado resembling the epitome of what it means to be a proper southern gentleman. He loves bow ties so passionately that I can hardly get him to wear a regular tie.

    I have a great husband that is my best friend, that hears me out when I whine, complain, cry, vent, and scream at him when it isn’t his fault. I love him for listening to me and being there when I know all I want to do is run out the door because of how bad my crazy behavior can be. I love you Aaron! Thanks for staying with me and being my companion.

  11. Amanda Helmer

    I would definitely give it to my adorable and Southern boyfriend, Lance. Although from a small town in North Carolina, he is very aware of fashion and even shops for me! Lance has also been a huge emotional support as I finish up architecture school hours away from him.

    May I just say how much I just LOVE reading these little tidbits about the sweet men in your lives?! Keep them coming! We should do this more often : )

    I’m totally in love with these ties, thanks for sharing!! I would give mine to my adorable Southern (ok, Oklahoman – almost Southern) boyfriend James… if I decide it doesn’t look cuter on me!

  14. LJG

    I have LOVED southern proper forever . . . now that I live in the north, I would LOVE to give my boyfriend some super cute bow ties!!

  15. Liz

    I’d give it to my sweet fiance. He’s a big bow tie fan & these would be perfect for his collection. Plus we live near where Southern Proper started & love to give them business!

    By the way, I’ve been following your site over a year now & never left a “reply”. I think your blog’s amazing & I’m always anxious to see what you’ll blog about next!

  16. Lauren

    Oh I just love Southern Proper! I’d say that any and all of my brothers would be envious of one of their bow ties but I’d have to give it to my boyfriend who is Mr. Outdoorsman and also looks dashing in a bow tie! I always tease him for his duck boots and he would just die if I ended up giving him a bow tie bedecked in them!

  17. Colleen

    So classic! I would give them to my uncle, as a thank you for letting me stay with them right now. He wears a bow tie every single day to work; it’s his trademark. ; )

  18. Sarah

    I would be so torn in my gifting! While my beau wears bow ties regularly, I would have to gift the tie to my sweet little brother. I can just see him walking around the campus of the University of the South with duck boots around his neck and Bean Boots on his feet.

    Genuine….that’s how you describe my son Reid. I know I am his mother and I am partial, but Reid is the epitome of a southern gentleman. Oh, he’s preppy and loves nothing better than a great bow tie, but that is not what makes him a southern gentleman. It’s the way he always says yes ma’am when I am talking to him, how he thanks me after breakfast every morning or the way he steps aside to let me go first in the communion line. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t hesitate to always say he loves me at the end of a phone call or because he always finds time to call his two sisters to check in on them each week. Maybe it’s the way he writes me a small note to say sorry when he thinks he has let me down. These may be small gestures to some, but to me it let’s me know I did my job. As he left for his freshman year at college a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help but beam with pride…I knew I had raised one fine, southern gentleman. So, as a thank you for being a great son, I ask that you consider Reid as a recipient of the new bow ties. If he wins I can hear it now, “Ahhh Mom, you didn’t have to do that, but thanks anyway.” He’ll have it on the next day!

    These bow ties are too cute and I think my hubby would look adorable in them! He’s a high school special ed teacher, and loves an excuse to wear something a bit more stylish than his typical coaching logo’ed polo! :)

    Since there is no lucky special man in my life worthy of a gift like this, either my father or my brother! Both are worthy, but they will have to fight over who gets the prize. They would do the bow tie justice with their fashion repertoire of seersucker, duck boots, etc!
