The new holidays on the calendar keep sneaking up on us. Earlier this week, we almost missed National Dog Day. Today, we realized that it's National Bow Tie Day. And yes, we know that bow ties don't really fit with the perception of Bay Area fashion, but we've spotted quite a few gentlemen stepping up their style game lately— trading hoodies for real shirts and even bringing out neckwear. Why not take the plunge with a bow tie? Local bow tie maker Tasty Ties can set you up an option that lets you test-drive the look while repping for your favorite San Francisco neighborhood. The ties are adjustable to fit neck sizes 14-18, and prices range between $74 and $99. It's a dandy way to show your SF pride.
