Gone Fishin’- Grand Slam Traffic Jam
Bird Dog Bay might have the most extensive collection of fishing themed neckties on the markets. Fishing bow ties, fishing neckties, fishing cummerbunds… You name the fish, we most likely have a tie with one on it. This season Steve drew a saltwater fishing tie that has fans going bonkers! Check out Grand Slam Traffic Jam. For those of you not in the know, A grand slam is when you catch a permit, a snook, a tarpon, and a bonefish all in the same day. Quite a feat… some say it cannot be done. If you can’t catch all the fish, then grab one of our ties, then you can say you have a grand slam! My personal favorite is the Grand Slam in violet. The subtleness of the white and blue contrast well with a white or blue dress shirt and it make for a lovely combination. Sometimes, it is difficult finding a crazy purple whimsical tie, that can also be seen as subtle and conservative… This one can play both sides… It also may be one of our best selling fish ties we have!
Pair it with our Clarkson Dress Shirt for the ultimate Bird Dog Bay look, but be careful… you might end up with some “lady fish” tugging at the end of your line!
For the Casual Man.
One does not always have to be donned up in a bow tie and dress shirt. Sometimes, it is nice to relax, and throw on something, a little more casual and comfortable. Knowing this, we introduced our newest line of shirts and caps. The Gus Cap has a breathable mesh lining and leather adjustable band to complement its cotton structure. It is a great summer hat to wear to the park, the beach, or really just about anywear!
Along with our new colors of Gus Caps, Steve has designed a new line of Logo T-shirts available in short and long sleeve. Made from comfort colors dyed cotton shirts, these puppies are incredibly soft, and look great too! Match them with some classic khaki shorts, a bathing suit, or a pair of jeans. Adorned with our Bird Dog Bay Gus logo, these shirts will turn heads and get folks guessing, Where is Bird Dog Bay?… You’ll just have to tell them about us!
It is Spring and that means putting some bright pep and step into your wardrobe. You might as well start with your feet, for your “first step” Grab a pair of our pima cotton dress socks. They are silky soft and will brighten up your wardrobe in a fun and subtle… or not so subtle manner. Try a pair today!
