Core77 and Hand-Eye Supply would like to kick off our holiday promotions in style, so we'll lead with our newest retail collaboration with esteemed bow tie crafters PINO: The Portland Craftsman Bow Tie.
Hewn from workwear-grade Mt. Vernon Mills Pointer Brand 100% cotton brown duck fabric, bound with heavy duty green stitching and fortified with solid brass snaps in the rear, it certainly deserves the title of World's Toughest Bow Tie, or (if you're so inclined) the ultimate BRO TIE. It's like the mutant offspring of Carhartt and Brooks Brothers, working equally well whether you are painting the town or painting some trim.
More photos after the jump!
Our look book model is Joe Gibson, who's Revolution Design House was featured on the Hand-Eye Supply Blog.
Check the Tie out in the 2012 Core77 Designer Gift Guide or in person at the Core77 Pop-Up Shop at Blu Dot in New York City.
