Welcome to our community! Unbound Estilo is more than just a company selling things, we are a movement. We want to support people and give people not only the freedom of speech (AKA blogging with us) but also freedom of apparel. There are no boundaries, no borders here at Unbound Estilo. Our ties and bow ties were created with people in mind, not men not women, people.
Flashback: The dress code at one of my previous jobs called for women to wear slacks, blouses, dresses and skirts. Men were to wear slacks, dress shirts and ties. I wondered what about me?? I don’t like dresses and skirts! I like ties and bow ties. I debated what to do, show up in a tie and risk being embarrassed? Or adhere to the rules and risk losing a part of myself? It took some courage but I decided to show up in slacks, a dress shirt and a tie. It was discouraging to see the unconscious and subtle choices people made when speaking to me, looking at me and referring to me. But at the end of the day I chose to stay true to myself. Clothes create unspoken rules. Denying who you are even in the slightest way can be detrimental. For me denying my style, was shutting a part of me away and lying about who I was. Fast forward two years later and here we are, letting you know, you are who you are and we accept YOU.
So with that in mind, we hope you check back for our future posts!
