One of our customers, Blake Hammerton, had been working on his proposal since his first date with his fiancée, Jami. The two got to know each other through an online business course and decided to meet in person. From that moment, he knew she was the person he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. After moving to Dallas to continue their relationship, he started writing secret love notes to her. He wrote one each day—867 to be exact. This past May, Blake made sure his plan all came together. He went as far as making sure a fountain at the spot where he proposed was up and running again. The only thing he couldn’t plan for was the weather, but the rain let up just in time for Blake to propose to Jami on that sunny Friday afternoon. After a walk around the harbor and a little help from mutual friends, Blake surprised Jami with the jar of 867 love notes, a ring and a proposal. The surprises didn’t stop there. Arriving at the restaurant for a celebratory dinner, Jami's friends and family were all there to greet her.
Where does SKINNYFATTIES come in to this exciting engagement? Blake planned the day right down to the finest detail. He made sure he looked positively dapper when he proposed by dressing up his outfit with a tie. The tie Blake chose wasn't just any tie though – it was a SKINNYFATTIES original design that came in the March 2015 SprezzaBox, a new subscription box company that offers the latest men's fashion accessories for only $28/month.

“It's weird to say, but when the tie arrived in the SprezzaBox, I knew it was the tie I would wear. Skinny, lavender, amazing. It couldn't have been anything else,” says Hammerton.

SKINNYFATTIES is happy to be a part of one of many happy days for both Blake and Jami. And for the future, we wish them many more!
