How to Wear A Lapel Flower Pin

How to wear a lapel flower pin

The lapel flower, or boutonniere as it’s also known, must be worn on the left lapel close to the heart.

There are two ways to wear a lapel flower pin, with and without the pin showing or concealed. Unlike what most people think, lapel flowers are not only for wedding, proms, or special occasions.

To add an extra detail to your ensemble, try wearing a lapel flower with a blue jean jacket or any jacket.

Bow Tie Aficionado Reviews Kruwear Bow Ties: Madia and Flomo

Chicago-based menswear company, Kruwear's bow ties reviewed by The Bow Tie Aficionado

After all, who wouldn't want their bow tie review by an outstanding site such as The Bow Tie Aficionado. The Bow Tie Aficionado is a site for bow tie fans. They're outstanding and aim to educate and promote the virtues of bow tie by increasing existing fans' appreciation.

We are grateful and fortunate to have had two of our bow ties, Madia and Flomo, reviewed by these outstanding guys:

“I quickly focused on the Madia with its floral pattern and the Flomo. While I do have a few floral bow ties, the Madia caught my attention since it is distinct from those ties. The Madia is a winner. On the other hand, I was attracted to the Flomo since it’s brown and green pattern would really stand apart from the rest of my collection. It would definitely add some dimension. The Flomo is a limited edition item. Only nine were made, and I’m lucky enough to own one!

Please visit The Bow Tie Aficionado, read the article, and show them some love.

Kruwear Menswear Launch Party Held at The Silver Umbrella

Kruwear menswear launch party at The Silver Umbrella

Last weekend the team at one of Chicago's upscale consignment boutiques, The Silver Umbrella, opened their doors and hearts for a fun evening of food, wine, and a class on “how to tie men's self-tie bow tie”.  And of course an exciting opportunity for us to launch our exquisite line of menswear – bow ties, necktie, lapel pins, and pocket squares.

We are grateful to our public relations and marketing team for their integrated marketing approach in reaching key fashion bloggers and influencers via search engine optimization (SEO), advertising, direct mail, content marketing and social media.

To avoid tooting our own horn by claiming a successful launched, we will not throw numbers around. We will, however, express our heartfelt appreciation to you for the sudden spike in sales.

Started by Charles Mombo, Kruwear Inc. was crafted from a passion and devotion to provide uniquely designed fashion selections. Made with love in the “Windy City”, the City of Chicago, the company’s name originates from the Kru Tribe of Liberia, West Africa, where the founder spent his childhood years.

With an instant hit and a high demand for his bow ties, the Kru Team had to outsource to local manufactures to meet demands. Charles holds a B.S. in Computer Science, a Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MSMIS) with a concentration in E-Commerce, and a Master in Business Administration (MBA). He is an Adjunct Professor with a focus in Business and Computer Information Systems classes and is also an Information Technology Manager at a government agency.

Thank you to all who made it and shared our very first launch party! The start of many more to come. Please #JoinTheKru for our upcoming pop-up event of “Bow Ties and Brandy”.
