“Bow ties really reflect an individual’s pride and attention to detail,” says Erin McCoy, owner of Hank’s Haberdashery, a snappy line of dapper bow ties ($40) and pocket squares ($20) available on Etsy. The Eastlake-based McCoy started Hank’s Haberdashery in 2012 as a way to indulge her creative side (she’s a women’s health researcher at the University of Washington by day) and to fill a gap she saw in the market for well-made men’s accessories using beautiful fabric. Her inspiration comes from the gorgeous vintage textiles she finds while scouring the city’s estate sales, giving the fabric a second chance to shine. Attention to detail is one of McCoy’s hallmarks; she has honed and tweaked her design over the years—something anyone who’s ever tried tying a bow tie will certainly appreciate. etsy.com/shop/hankshaberdashery
