Disclosure: I was provided a ‘Besties’ bow tie set to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
We’ve already established that a little guy in Stinky McGee suspenders is just about the cutest thing ever, but I think we can do one better. How about father and son in a coordinating bow tie set? Yup. Cutest thing ever.
One of my favorite Brooklyn exports, Stinky McGee offers handmade accessories for the boys in your life. With a beautiful collection of unique fabrics and patterns (specially picked right in NYC’s Garment District), Stinky McGee bow ties, suspenders, bibs, scarves, hats and ties will have your little dudes looking extra dapper. Luckily, the cuteness isn’t limited to the little guys. While the majority of Stinky McGee items are designed for kiddos ages 0-7 years, they also offer a special ‘Besties’ line featuring coordinating bow ties for father and son.
Much like the ‘Squeal Heard Round the World’ when I received my son’s vintage houndstooth suspenders earlier this year, I let out a noise that only dogs could hear when our Besties bow ties arrived. The two gingham bow ties were absolutely darling, and in typical Stinky McGee fashion they were incredibly well made with extra attention to detail. Like the suspenders, Stinky McGee bow ties are fully adjustable so that my little guy can continue to wear his bow tie for years to come. I was also very pleased with the plastic clasp on the neckband, which makes putting a bow tie on a squirmy toddler a breeze. Similarly, my husband was thrilled that with the easy-to-use hook and loop closure on his tie, he wouldn’t have to actually learn how to tie a bow tie!
When the boys were finally in their bow ties, I was overwhelmed by the cuteness. I mean…it just really doesn’t get much cuter than boys in bow ties, am I right? And the best part? Not only are the bow ties cute, but they’re also easy to clean and made to last.
On a personal note, I have really enjoyed getting to know the owner of Stinky McGee, Christine Ryan, over the last few months. Christine is incredibly dedicated to her amazing family and her business, and also devotes a great deal of her time to charitable work. She is just such a kind, creative, thoughtful and beautiful spirit. When she says that each Stinky McGee product is handmade with love, she’s not lying!
This Father’s Day, support a mompreneur and treat your fella(s) to a Stinky McGee Besties bow tie set. With four different sets to choose from, you’re bound to find the perfect pair for your boys. I know that you, your husband AND your son will all fall in love with Stinky McGee just like my family has.
