Carolina Cup is not for the long tie. Sorry to those guys who insist on no-bow ties, but it's just the way it is. You wear a bow tie. Not only that, but you wear about as festive of a bow tie as you can find. This might mean:
Southern Proper's Topless Beau
High Cotton Ties' Spring Four Way Bow Tie
Social Primer's Sea Island Bow Tie
Southern Proper's Mint Julep Beau
Lilly Pulitzer's Resort White Spring Fling Bow Tie (Lilly or louder, right?!)
Bow ties are the single most important MUST-HAVE for the guys on the day of Carolina Cup! For the gals, you must insist that your date dons his best beau so that you can boast you've got the best lookin' date of them all out there!
