Dolbeau diamond tip wool bow tie, $114; http://www.rooneyshop.com

Not to sound like an obnoxious fashionista with a varsity cheerleader voice, but bow ties are so in right now. Celebs are sporting them left and right, but I’m pretty sure Brad Goreski was one of the first (if not the first) guy to really embrace the piece and show modern America how gentleman can incorporate it into their daily lives.

Rooney is a Canadian retailer that sells “new and interesting brands” to the area of Old Montreal, and this look I pulled together from pieces that can be found on its website. With this look, the bow tie can be worn with or without the bomber. Not too many men realize or feel comfortable wearing a bow tie without a third piece, but it’s both acceptable and encourage, especially for those of us out there who love wearing bow ties but find a jacket or sweater too warm for spring. The saddle shoes are a finishing touch that should be worn without socks to give the look an air of “I’m cool without trying.”
