Jesse Tyler Ferguson Launches Tie Collection for Marriage Equality
We’re still swimming in the excitement of Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s unexpected engagement announcement, but here is some more JTF news for you—him and his fiancé, Justin Mikita, have teamed up with TheTieBar.com to launch a limited-edition collection of silk bow ties.
Combining elements of humor, style and individuality, the neckwear will be priced at $25 (we even hear there is one inspired by the bust of Liza Minnelli—fab!). The collection will benefit Tie the Knot, a new charity they founded to raise awareness and advocate on behalf of marriage equality in the United States through art, fashion and entertainment, with 100 percent of the collection’s sales profits going toward various organizations across the country fighting for civil rights.
“Justin and I created Tie The Knot in the hopes that we soon see a day when millions of Americans across the country will have the basic civil right to marry the person they love. When people purchase our bow ties, they’re raising funds that will help support marriage equality, and they’re doing it while looking damn good,” says Ferguson. “I have been a big fan of The Tie Bar and have often worn their bow ties to various events so I am thrilled to be teaming up with them on this project. They have been a perfect companion on this journey bringing their savvy sense of fashion and high quality workmanship to the table. I can’t wait for people to see what we have created!”
