Christmas Down South – Day 5 – Dogwood Black

Every time a bow tie is tied, an angel gets its wings. So today, we bow tie. Dogwood Black, formerly known as Southern Ties, went live on November 1st. Still calling Fredericksburg, Virginia home, their biggest change was to become a greater reflection of who they are. “We don’t really take ourselves too seriously, but we still demand excellence and want to build something more meaningful than a larger bottom line. We wanted every facet to reflect our beliefs and while we’re not quite where we want to be yet, we think we’re on the right path.” In addition to bows, they’ve also added shirting as a response to issues they personally had with quality and price.

Want to win this box of bows? Leave a comment on this post letting us know your favorite Christmas movie. The winner, who will be chosen at random on December 21st, will get the CamoCandy Cane, and Tartan bow ties.
