Just when you thought bow ties couldn’t get any cuter, here comes Augustus Shaw with his line of dice-fabricated neckwear under the moniker “Mr. Talented.” Shaw fashions the one-of-a-kind bow ties out of colorful translucent dice, as well as numbered vintage woods. The line toys with the modern idea of the bow tie as a symbol of quirk, taking the accoutrement to a level of kitsch that is more charming than gimmicky.

Shaw is an all-around aesthete: Not only is he a “talented” fashion designer but also an avid cook (as you can see from his blog), painter, director of his own creative company and humanitarian who works hard to make a difference in the world through his art. Those interested in procuring one of these whimsical dice bow ties can contact Shaw directly via his website, MrTalented.com.

me. Thanks, quite nice post.
