     Bowtie's are a staple of southern fashion and now sales are up across the country.

     "It's fun to wear a bowtie. If you go to (Carolina) Cup you wear a bowtie, fraternity parties. I think Dr. Sorensen had a lot to do with that, particularly at the University," said Bowtie guru Lucky Levinson.

     Bowtie sales online are up 34% since December according to a New York Times article. Bowtie fanatics say it's because of the warmer weather and the attractivness of the bowtie.

     "I started wearing a bowtie  because I found out that women love guys in bowties. Most people associate bowties with spring, the south, and summer things," said Levinson.

      So as the weather heats up, you might just see more bowties coming out.
