Newly-Engaged Jesse Tyler Ferguson Designs Bow Ties for Marriage EqualitySep 19, 2012 @ 4:01 pm
Modern Family star (and all-around cutie pie) Jesse Tyler Ferguson is engaged to longtime boyfriend, lawyer Justin Mikita! The couple made the announcement in the video above, a cute snippet they filmed to promote their new charity, Tie The Knot. They founded the organization to further the cause of marriage equality in the United States through art, entertainment, and fashion. First up: a line of bow ties designed by Ferguson himself and available for $25 starting this November, exclusively online through men’s tie shopping site TheTieBar.com (they’re wearing them in the clip!). “Justin and I created Tie The Knot in the hopes that we soon see a day when millions of Americans across the country will have the basic civil right to marry the person they love,” Ferguson said. “When people purchase our bow ties, they’re raising funds that will help support marriage equality, and they’re doing it while looking damn good.” Dapper duds and civil rights—it’s an unstoppable combo!
