Ties to the Powerful

Buck & Doe put a Southern twist to a classic style

Bow ties have withstood the test of time here in the south— still adding just the right amount of charm to every outfit they complement. Savannah’s own Buck and Doe Goods design bow ties that not only make statements, but tell stories reflecting the unique, eccentric culture of the South.

All of Buck and Doe’s bow ties are handcrafted from start to finish in husband-and-wife team Trae Gurley and Jessica Pope’s home. Jessica, a full-time sales director, part-time artist and SCAD graduate with a BFA in printmaking and textiles, made her first set of bow ties for a Christmas show that Trae, a professional jazz singer prominent on the Savannah music circuit, was performing in. After being so pleased with the final bold, fun bow ties, the two were encouraged to start selling the accessories at local antique malls and online.
