In an era marked by "dress-down" casual thats the norm for almost all aspects of social life today, its refreshing to see that the bow-tie is still in-style and has meaning and a place in fashion.

The bow-tie(s) in question is the crux of Alfred Julius, founded by Chike Atu who is also the head designer. A.J
is an amazing men's luxury accessory line paying homage to the grandfather of the founder. 

An aside from their dashing bow-ties (one of which was worn by actor Terrance J at the most recent BET awards) A.J has recently put together a collection of tunes "that express the summer mood for the Alfred Julius man", entitled 'Summer Jukebox'.

It ranges from 1945, when Alfred Julius was 26 years old, up until 2012 where the founder (his grandson) Chike Atu is currently 26 years old. Also with it is an accompanying bow-tie that in its way, expresses the mood of it all, through the Alfred Julius look and style.

If you would like to know more, go, or to listen to the 'summer jukebox, go to: "Art is the reason, art is the way."
