The Only Sweaters You Need for Fall


Top of Your Field

If you’re anything like us, you don’t buy new sweaters every fall. You probably have a few favorites kicking around that are the go-to choices for when the temperature drops. Also, if you’re anything like us, these reliable choices are showing signs of wear and age; whether its the pilling you swear no one notices, or the shiny area on the elbows that forecasts a new break.

Our quarter zip sporting sweaters will earn their way to be your new favorites, and you won’t replace them anytime soon. Available in 100% merino wool, or 100% cashmere, they feature a dense, tight, two-ply weave, for unsurpassed durability. Longevity doesn’t mean compromising comfort; both fabrics offer excellent breathability and warmth; and are great choices for either a mid or outermost layer.

Only the finest and longest fibers are selected, eliminating pilling, and ensuring consistency from neck to waist, cuff to shoulder. Plus, we’ve reinforced the shoulder and elbow pads, meaning the only breaks you’ll be seeing will be on the green or the deer stand.

We offer standard sizes small through XXL for ease of shopping and gift giving, but bespoke service is complementary. Know your sizing exactly? Drop us a line at customerservice@birddogbay.com and our team will guide you through your customization. All sweaters require 2-3 weeks to be crafted; order now for perfect timing for sweater weather season.


Bird Calls: Fox in the Hen House


Fantastic Mr. Fox

Bird Dog Bay was started on the idea we could all use a little more sophisticated whimsy. Now, while Steve may not have drawn “Fox in the Hen House” until recently, it’s hard to think of a better representation of this founding thought. With the chicken high-tailing it away from the wiley fox, it may ruffle a few feathers, but that’s what Bird Dog Bay is all about. Our clever friend doesn’t seem to mind being caught in the act, but rather enjoys it, much like the time Steve and friends crashed a wedding reception at the Drake hotel in Chicago.

This smart tie is a surefire conversation starter, and is perfect for this fall’s formals and festivities. No matter the tie’s background color, the details of the shadowing, and light coloring of the chicken, make matching with a white shirt and dark jacket easier than, well, crashing an open bar reception.


Introducing the Wellington Button Down


Chambray Play

Our new Wellington Button Down was born in Chicago, crafted with 100% Egyptian Cotton, and milled in Italy. This first class shirt has more stamps in its passport than we do, and its chambray pattern makes it a readily packable traveler. Whether you are jet-setting or just-sitting, the Wellington is our most versatile shirt, thanks to it’s classic pattern and color. This tried and true blue makes matching a tie a breeze (Steve makes sure to include as much blue and white as possible in our neckwear for exactly this reason), and we particularly like to pair it with a contrasting red or yellow.

Happy shopping, and remember, feel free to drop us a line at (312) 631-3108 or at customerservice@birddogbay.com.


Introducing our New Fall Collection, Free Shipping Until Monday


Bird Dog Bay Decade

When Steve Mayer started Bird Dog Bay back in 2006, he had some English woven necktie design experience, a lucky mechanical pencil, and his lousy but lovable hunting dog, Gus. Today the line’s grown tremendously, but Steve remains our sole illustrator, and he continues to draw everything by hand, dreaming up our collection of sophisticated whimsy. Our tenth anniversary collection includes some revamped favorites from the very first few collections, as well as brand new illustrations and goods. Looks like you can teach an old dog new tricks!
