Founded in 2012 by Actor/Designer Sherard Vincent Briscoe, Sir Vincent Designs handcrafts high-quality, contemporary bow ties- or as we call them “beauxs” or “beaux ties”. Based in the magical city of New Orleans, Sir Vincent aims to provided neckwear to the fashionably daring with designs that reflect the spirit, detail, and uniqueness of the city it calls home.

Sherard studied theatre at a young age, ultimately earning his B.A. in Theatre Arts from Loyola University New Orleans. One of his most notable roles was featured in the award winning film “12 Years A Slave.” Sherard always found ways to express himself. If it wasn’t through song and dance on stage, it was through his preppy wardrobe. His fashion sense has awarded him the title as one of the “most stylish men of New Orleans” when awarded Man of Style in 2012 by Rubenstein’s Men of Style Awards presented by Cue Magazine.

Sir Vincent Designs, has been featured in Michele Varian’s Boutique in New York City, and recognized by Cue Magazine, The Maroon, American Oxford Magazine, The Visibility Project, Rubenstein’s Men's Store, and WWL-TV The 504. When Sherard is not designing neckwear, he’s working on furthering his acting career and enjoying the rich art culture of the Crescent City, especially the live sounds of New Orleans.
