My dad (who I affectionally still call daddy) never learned how to tie a tie from his father, which left me to countless YouTube tutorials. I’ll be honest I've had my fair share of failed attempts. The answer to my prayers has been none other than JTies.
American traditions depict dads showing their sons how to shave, tie a tie, and change a tire. Unfortunately, my dad’s father was in America cementing the foundation for his family, while he was left behind in Haiti. Fast forward 30 plus years I’m attempting to get ready for a recital at school and struggling. I recall looking over to my dad for help and witnessing the look of disappointment for not knowing.
I never faulted him, but I knew there would eventually have to be a solution.
Since discovering JTies handmade bow ties I'm all the way good! Now I can look to my daddy and place a bow tie on him. Goes to show traditions can always be upgraded at some point.
Happy Birthday Daddy!
