Branded: Fox & Brie


We’ve been crushing on bow ties here at The Green Kangaroo, so, of course, when we came across Jess Decelle’s Etsy shop, Fox & Brie, we were smitten!  Ranging from bow ties to pocket squares, her gentlemanly handmade wares are sewn with sought after natural and vintage fabrics.

Jess’ “classic, but quirky” style is evident in her work — striped, plaid, and ikat fabrics are scattered throughout her shop, featuring her very own bow tie patterns.  Shown above are Navy Ikat, Rust Linen, and Charcoal Striped pocket square, all some of my favorites.  Jess will even work with customer-provided fabric and takes on custom orders with gusto!  She once suited a party of 12 in rainbow pastel linen bow ties.  And she’s had a request for a burlap bow tie!

I love that she credits her grandfather, a true Southern gentleman, for inspiring her work!  Well, she’s inspired us this month and we’ve put together a quirky vintage wedding day look based on the style of Fox & Brie.

I’m also introducing a few new styles of suspenders. They’ve become pretty popular in my custom orders, so I’ve decided to make them available to the rest of my customers.”  A big THANK YOU to Jess for being so kind in teaming up with us for our August giveaway!

    I love the Olive Linen Neck Tie!! The color is beautiful and you can’t go wrong with linen!! I hope they make other colors of this version. I would especially love it if they can make the neck tie out of the charcoal stripe pocket sqaure material! It would be perfect for our wedding!

    I am in love with the Cornflower bow tie! It’s that pretty pale blue that makes you want to drag your fiance to a summer picnic. Plus, it matches his eyes.. a color that I’m kinda crazy about :)
