The Formal Patriot

At a loss for how to dress up your Veteran's Day? Look no further...

Across the United Kingdom today, poppies are gracing gentlemen’s lapels in honor of Remembrance Day (a reference to a WWI battlefield poem called In Flanders Fields). For us Americans, who lack a similarly pollinated (not to mention poetic) tradition, giving Veteran’s Day a shout-out can feel a little more complicated. For those so inclined, we suggest these camouflage bow ties, recommissioned straight from soldier-worn uniforms and available on the recently ACL-approved Etsy. Available in jungle (pictured above) and desert camo, it’s a classy, hand-sewn move that’ll only set you back $36. Though we gotta ask, where’s the digi-camo?
