Collared Greens & the Kentucky Derby
With the Kentucky Derby coming up this weekend, it’s important to have your attire in order. Thankfully, the Spring 2013 neckwear collection from North Carolina-based Collared Greens features ties and bowties inspired by famous Thoroughbreds in racing history. There’s the striped “Affirmed,” named after the most recent winner of the United States Triple Crown, gingham “Barbaro” in honor of the 2006 Derby winner and striped “Curlin,” an American Thoroughbred named for Charles Curlin, a slave from Kentucky who fought in the Civil War.
The “Secretariat” printed with horseshoes and racehorses needs no introduction, while the “Zenyatta,” named after the 19 consecutive Thoroughbred race winner, rounds out the collection with more stripes.
All American-made using sustainable methods, the bowties retail at $55 and neckties at $85. Both are available for purchase at www.collaredgreens.com.
Not in need of neckwear? Collared Greens also offers homegrown polos. Designed in High Point, North Carolina, made of Texas-grown certified organic cotton and cut and sewn in South Carolina, these shirts are truly Southern-made. We suggest the salmon pink for summer and maybe a belt to go with it.
