Jesse Tyler Ferguson wants you to support LGBT rights in style.


Modern Family
star and his husband Justin Mikita’s nonprofit Tie the Knot has teamed up with Ketel One vodka, designing a limited-edition “Martini” bow tie in honor of N.Y.C. Pride.

“Both TTK and Ketel One wanted to make a bold statement,” Mikita, 29, tells PEOPLE. “The whimsical twist of the martini glasses in the plaid print is a dynamic reinterpretation of Ketel One’s spirit.”

The Martini is available for purchase now at TheTieBar.com. And you’ll look fashionable for a good cause: 80 percent of proceeds go toward the advancement of same-sex marriage.

Read on to learn what Ferguson, 39, has to say about his summer wardrobe staples. 

How would you describe your personal sense of style? 
I have a very preppy sense of style. Love suiting and ties, but also really love suits that are bold and textured to make a statement.

Bow ties seem to be having a comeback: Why do you love the look more than slim ties?
Bow ties are fun and quirky — and a little bit off center. They’ve got so much personality and that’s why people like them.

How many bow ties do you own?
I have gotten one of every bow tie from Tie The Knot since 2012, so I must have over 400 different bows at this point… Not to mention my personal collection of others.

What’s your go-to fashion staple this summer?
This summer it’s HOT so I’m loving shorts and Chucks.

How are you spending N.Y.C. Pride this year?
Performing The Tempest in Shakespeare in the Park!
