Two years ago, William Murphy broke his foot. He didn't want to spend the entire summer in the house doing nothing so he came up with the idea to make a bow tie.

And since then, he's grown that idea into a business with the help of his mom.

"Bow ties are great. It's just an accessory that really exudes confidence. You don't see the normal guy wearing bow ties," says Murphy.

His company, Reign Bow Ties, sells bow ties and matching pocket squares. They have solids, prints and floral designs. And it's not just for men.
