Giveaway: Uptown Boys


Little boy clothes are the cutest!! We have had so much fun picking out Mazen’s clothes everyday, and we’re just now leaving the newborn onesie stage and moving into some 0-3 outfits that are soooo cute! When I was hunting for an outfit for Maze to wear to this past weekend’s wedding, I wanted something much dressier than a onesie but also something that had a farm feel. Of course I leaned towards denim. But putting a baby just in overalls for a wedding seemed to be missing something, so when long-time KERF reader and mom McKenna emailed me that she would love to send me one of her Uptown Boys bowties for Mazen, I knew this was our answer to snaz him up!


The Uptown bowties actually snap on to onesies fitted with a snap, so there’s no tying or loop around your baby’s neck and they stay perfectly tied and in place.



McKenna sent two onesies – white and navy – and three ties to choose from for the wedding. We went with the boldest colors for extra fun, but I love the other patterns as well! There are a whole host on the website.


Mazen loved the fun colors!


The ties are machine washable and made to be durable (seeing as that they are placed right in the spit up zone : ) )


We completed the outfit with overalls and cowboy booties!


Mazen was the talk of the wedding in his bowtie : )



Behind The Bowties

The inspiration behind Uptown Boys is my little boy Upton.  After I had Upton I quickly found that fashionable boys apparel was limited and was lacking the fun in dressing a new baby.  I loved the idea of Upton wearing a bowtie but discovered that the very small amount of bowties offered were too uncomfortable and impractical for a baby to wear; I wasn’t too keen on the idea of wrapping anything around Upton’s neck and the idea of having to button the top button on a collared shirt just seemed so uncomfortable for a new baby. I took my problem to my mother-in-law Holly, Co-founder of Uptown Boys, and after many attempts, we figured a way to attach bowties to onesies in a way that is simple, easy and strong enough for most babies.  I loved dressing Upton in the onesies and bowties and every time I was out in public people would stop me and ask where I got the bowties from; with this happening we realized that we had solved a problem that many people had and stumbled onto something people appreciated.  We went through many versions to make sure that our bowties were authentic, durable, machine washable and easy to put on and take off by parents, not babies. –McKenna, co-founder

  1. Awww! My baby boy Isaac is 11 days old! We have pics with my in laws for the holiday card on nov 11. We’re to wear jeans and a white shirt! I would love the Clifford bowtie for Isaac!

  2. These are too cute! My little guy is 7 weeks old and these would be too cute for holiday pictures!! I liked the black/white plaid one although all of them are precious!!

  3. Our baby Bobby (Bob as the kids call him!) is almost 6 weeks old already and I think he would love great in the Clifford! 🙂

    What a cute and fun idea!

  4. My sister is pregnant with a baby boy, and I would love to win and give this to her! My favorite would probably be the Dalton.

  5. I love the tie you chose for the wedding. Maze looked adorable! I recently found out I am having a baby boy (due in February). He is my first and we struggled for a long time to get pregnant. I could not be more excited to welcome him to the world and I am happy to know about this option for dressing him for fancier occasions. Such a cute idea!

  6. I don’t know yet if I’m having a boy or a girl (though something is telling me it’s a boy!), but I’m digging the Hadley. My husband wears a matching gingham print button down and I would love for him to have a matching mini-me!

  7. Those babies on the Uptown Boys website are TOO cute! Picking a favorite style is a tough call but I’d have to go with something classic like the Oxford.

  8. These are adorable! My favorite bow tie pattern is definitely The Hadley. Partly because I love that name, not going to lie! But, I also love pattern.

  9. Wow I love all the bowties, they are adorable. I am expecting twin boys in February. They would be perfect for Easter brunch 🙂

  10. The Hadley is adorable! Thanks so much for the giveaway <3 I can just imagine my 3 month old wearing these during the holidays or to church!

  11. It’s hard to pick between the oxford or alexander. My husband loves bowties and it would be cute for our little guy to match. Our little guy is almost four weeks old.

  12. I loved seeing these. What an awesome idea! Plus being a Doctor Who fan, the hubby and I definitely think “bow ties are cool!” I adore the “Clifford” pattern. Our lil’ man is actually due this Friday (NERVOUS + EXCITED!!) and how fun would these ties be for upcoming family gatherings like Thanksgiving and Chrismannukah?

  13. I love the Theodore. I’m having a boy in January, and love the idea of dressing him up like a little professor.

  14. Oh my goodness, they are all too cute! My best friend just found out she is having a baby boy, and I would love to win this for her! The colors of the Theodore are beautiful!!

  15. So adorable! Our little Ripken (Rip) is 10 weeks today. The Finn and the Dalton…love them both. We would love to win but if we don’t, we may have to place an order!!

  16. I absolutely LOVE the Alexander bowtie! So classic for my little boy! He is 14 months old and we have so much fun dressing him up like a little man 🙂

  17. My second little boy is due in 2 weeks! Both of his grandpas love to wear bow ties, so this would be adorable for the holiday season…he could match with his granddads at all the festive occasions. Everyone of the designs are precious, but I really love the Henry! Thanks!

  18. I love the one that you picked for Mazen to wear to the wedding! The bright colors are awesome! A good friend just had her baby boy, and he needs a little outfit for an upcoming wedding! These would be perfect!

  19. He is such a cutie! It’s so fun watching him grow and change!

    I’d love to be entered into the contest, for the stripey colorful bowtie, thanks!

  20. My soon to be born grandson would look so cute in one of these bowties. I like the Washington and the Lincoln cuz they’re red white & blue.

  21. I love The Washington! Perfect for the 4th of July … and since we live in Washington DC, he’ll fit right in. Especially on The Hill where everyone is wearing a bowtie! Our first baby, a boy, is due in January!

  22. This is so perfect! We are having a baby in Feb. and we both think its a boy and this made me so excited:) I loved the bright one you chose but also the Watson online is super cute. My husband and I were in Lexington too this weekend for the VMI reunion!

  23. I like the Watson and also the pin-striped and plaid / checked ones. It would be hard to choose! I am pregnant with a boy due in December, and these would be so cute on him!

  24. I just love the white/cream colored onsie with the Dixie pattern or the Clifford… both are just too cute for words! Gah!!! Mazen looks Soooooo adorable! 😀 😀

  25. I love “The Hadley”! So cute but classic, I’d love one for my little guy (due January 4th, can’t wait)!

  26. My husband is a bowtie fanatic and I’ve never seen him get so excited about baby clothing until I showed him these! Our favorite is the Alexander!

  27. These are ADORABLE!!!! I always feel that boys get the short end of the stick when it comes to clothing options…not anymore! My favorite is The Dalton.

  28. I love the pattern Mazen is wearing! So bright and adorable. My cousin is due with her first child in two weeks, I’d love to give him a little bowtie =)

  46. I love the Dalton pattern! Our little boy is due at the end of December and has some diapers that would match the bowtie to a ‘T’! How adorable would that be??

  47. Mazen looks SO sharp, and I love the idea of a little snap right on the onesie – genius! I’d say my favorite bow tie pattern would be plaid or some vintage-style floral print. Baby boys are so stinkin’ fun!

  48. They are all so adorable!! I love the Dalton and the Oxford. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything so cute!!
