This fall, we fell head over heels in love with Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s bow tie collection for, featuring designs that ranged from rustic plaid to bold stripes to whimsical florals, combining elements of humor, style and individuality.

Though utterly charming, the colorful designs limit the formality. Luckily, Ferguson and his fiancé Justin Mikita unveiled their first formal bow tie for the collection dubbed “The Signature: Wedding Bow Tie.”

Personally designed by the adorable duo, the limited-edition bow tie is handmade (100 percent silk), available in adjustable sizes and features a hip, owl print design, a prominent symbol for collection which, according to Ferguson, “Owls symbolize wisdom, foresight and patience, all traits that we see in individuals that are fighting for marriage equality.”

The tie will be available online and retail at $25 with all proceeds going toward Ferguson and Mikita’s Tie the Knot organization which supports marriage equality.
