The gent behind the bow tie goes by Louis, a 27-year old recent Charleston transplant to Birmingham, AL. In a town with only a handful of male bloggers, Louis brings his refined style with a hint of big city living.  The Bow Tie Gentleman is a digital spot to interact, inspire, and influence.... Welcome to the Bow Tie Gentleman!


Luxury Meets Nashville at JW Marriott

The next stop on our celebratory road trip kept us right in the Music City. Entering through the lobby, we instantly knew we wanted to move in rather than stay for a few nights at the JW Nashville. Take a look at this lobby – it screams Louis & Grant. The lobby is just a tease to the rest of...

Who is excited that Summer has finally arrived?! I know I am! It’s time to enjoy the warm weather with friends and family. We headed over to Beach Club Charleston for a little fun in the sun. Summer is all about new experiences, so we went out for a little game of croquet followed by snacks and a few drinks....

I definitely could not do this without the help of...
