Nikki Poles is Bringing the Bowtie Back


The Woman Behind the Bow Tie

Owner and designer of J Allen Inspired, Nikki Poles's story is truly one of inspiration. Dissatisfied by the dull and uninspired men's accessories offered to her husband, Jason Allen Poles, she knew that this couldn't be the only option.  As a former model, Nikki was no stranger to fashion and saw an opportunity to revolutionize the industry.  She took matters- and an assortment of uniquely selected fabrics- into her own hands to create a signature line of bowties for men who aren't afraid to put their necks on the line for bold style.  Originally born in San Juan, Trinidad, Nikki now resides in New York with her husband and three children.  Ask Nikki where her iconic designs come from and she will tell you...she's J Allen Inspired. 

Sophistication in Every Stitch 

Intricately designed and crafted with elegance, J Allen Inspired welcomes the return of the dapper man- with bold style and hand-crafted sophistication. Each handmade bowtie captures a vintage sense of style, once lost but never forgotten.  With bold designs and daring colors, our contemporary spin on a classic piece is the perfect accessory to reveal the man behind the suite.  For those who are bored with the ordinary, but still love the classics, we invite you to be inspired.
