Los Angeles-based label Fig is working with their ‘Threads for Threads’ program to give a school uniform to a child in East Africa for every hand-tailored tie sold. The Fig label offers standard bow ties in a variety of fabrics from wool Ivy League plaids to Italian silk patterns.

Fig also offers the opportunity to create a custom tie with a host of styles, colors and fabrics to choose from to give you a chance to express yourself a little more if you dare. Check out the 'Threads for Threads' project to contribute to a great cause.
