"Their collegiate-inspired Southern Stripes collections remains their most popular, likely because of the ties' versatility. You won't find any bulldogs or commodores on these ties; the designs are classic and wearable for any occasion. Get yourself the black and gold striped Heathermore for the Vandy game, and then wear it on New Year's. Sport the orange and white Ellington to a UT tailgate before heading to dinner in style..." - Wesley H Gallagher

Sweet Relish, "College Cool: Everything You Need To Know" August 2013
"If college freshmen have one thing in common it’s enthusiasm—the excitement of new friends and unfamiliar places, the liberty of unsupervised life, and the thrill of having your very own space. With so much to look forward to, it’s hard not to let pesky details (like what to pack for that dorm room) fall by the wayside. So before they fly the coop, be sure they’re equipped with the following “must haves” that are perfect for a life of fun and newfound freedom.
The start of the academic year is chock full of meet and greets with professors, advisors, and fellow students. He’ll put his best foot forward with a classic silk bow tie from Brier & Moss. Founded by two college fraternity brothers, Brier & Moss boasts quintessential college style with bowties made from the finest materials. Visit their website for a helpful guide to tying that new bow tie." - Mary Evelyn

Crusading Commoners May 10 2012
There are some new kids on the bow tie block. Nick Barnes & Jonathan Snyder are the founders of men’s apparel company Brier & Moss. Crusading Commoners recently caught up with one half of the company, Jonathan Snyder, for an in depth chat over fine cigars and Bulleit bourbon. Tucked away in a corner of The Leaf Cigar Lounge, filled with the aroma of heavy smoke, we discussed virtually everything. From the origin of the bow tie line, to the future of the company, not a stone was left unturned. Nevermind the rambunctious bunch sitting adjacent to us---gentlemen were speaking. And the conversation flowed from the moment we rested in those plush, chocolate leather seats. Get to know them better below, trust us, you’ll be hearing [read: seeing] Brier & Moss a lot more in the future.

Back Down South May 02 2012
Favorite part of the Atlanta Steeplechase:
I would have to say the pageantry and tailgating fun associated with the event. This year was unbeatable! We had beautiful weather, cold drinks, and good friends to experience it with!
- Custom made suit by Trio Tailoring of Atlanta. “I opted for a three piece suit in a summer weight fabric and chose the more modern European cut. My favorite detail on the suit are the working cuffs, which will allow me to roll up my sleeves in the heat of these infamous Georgia summers!”

"There are bow tie brands whose hallmark is creating bow ties from unique fabrics. There are bow tie brands known for their creative, whimsical printed designs. There are bow tie brands who specialize in one medium, like cotton. Now there is a bow tie brand specializing in bow ties crafted from the finest materials in simple stripes inspired by the colors of storied universities.
