MACKLEMORE ushers in the return of the BOLO TIE.
In life, there are certain basic principles we are encouraged to live by which help to keep us out of trouble. As a general rule of thumb, one of these principles is that if a celebrity is doing it . . . you most likely shouldn't be. However when it comes to cutting edge fashion, it’s no surprise that celebrities are often times great sources of inspiration. They are our muses—and as such, we can look to them not only to see what the upcoming fashion trends will be, but also to get creative and unique ways to pull those very trends off like a rock star . . . literally.
And who better for the fashion-forward to look to in 2014, than resident style icon Macklemore?! Always pushing the envelope, he gave us —in all his thrift shopping glory—a peek into iconic style: BOLO TIES. Sure, you could say we at Above + BOLO might have seen that one coming . . . but Macklemore did us all a favor and made it official to the world when he rocked a Bolo Tie alongside Bruno Mars at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
But don’t go thinking Macklemore and Bruno Mars are the only Bolo Tie wearing celebrities these days . . . not even close. Bolo Ties are headed back on the scene in a big way, but these American classics were never really out of style. In fact, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that lots of stylish celebrities have rocked Bolo Ties over the years. For example, style icons Johnny Depp, Kelly Osbourne and Bruce Springsteen have all been caught with a Bolo Tie around their talented necks, and that's just to name a few . . .
Whether you’re in the market for a vintage Bolo Tie or one that is handmade, we’ve got what you’re looking for. Shop Above + BOLO to easily buy Bolo Ties online. And with our huge selection of unique Bolo Ties—we’re sure you’ll have no problem finding the perfect one. In fact we even offer custom made Bolo Ties, just in case you’re not quite sure what to do with your old rock collection or that strange coin your Grandpa left you in his will . . .
Don’t get left behind choking on the dust of the fashion-forward . . . tap into that inner cosmic cowboy or cowgirl and find the perfect Bolo Tie today. Sure, it’s easy to shy away from making a fashion statement; but all you really need to ask yourself is, “What would Macklemore do?” . . . and that’s put a Bolo on it.
Yeah, we know.. that’s a real picture. Bill Murray himself, in a Bolo Tie, in some graffiti-ridden basement, hanging out with a glasses wearing banana, a beer drinking part man-part gorilla . . . and some guy.
