:::Flossin' Like Fonzworth::Peralta Project's VIIXX Neckwear:::
Since P. Diddy manservant Fonzworth Bentley's ascension to the spotlight, his unique fashion sense has inspired many cats to flip from do-rags to Louis Vutton bags in the blink of an eye. And for those who needed a little help in assembling their ensembles, his contestant-based MTV reality show G's To Gents helped a lot of folks figure out that polka dots with plaids might not be a good look. The preppy-nautical-equestrian-country club look has made quite an impression with the younger hip-hop contingent via celebs like Yeezy and Andre 3000. Dope boutiques and clothiers like Brooklyn Circus have impressively carved out niches for themselves in this burgeoning market. Graphic artist and designer M. Tony Peralta recently bowed a new line of bow ties with Fonzworth's flair in mind. His Peralta Project clothing arm recently introduced VIIXX Neckwear, a line of bow ties each named after a street in northern Manhattan:
The Payson Ave. Bow Tie.
The Bennett Ave. Bow Tie.
The Dyckman St. Bow Tie.
The Post Ave. Bow Tie.
These joints are type fly. Rock 'em with some suspenders and your favorite sport coat. Umbrella not included. Get 'em while they're hot.
