Emmy nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson of ABC's Modern Family has only last week announced his engagement to partner, Justin Mikita. They've also started a foundation called Tie The Knot in partnership with The Tie Bar that "advocates for a more stylish and equal America." This fall, Tie The Knot will launch an exclusive line of $25 bow ties to benefit the foundation which supports organizations that support an equal America.

Last night at the Emmy's, Jesse sported one of these bow ties which as he explains in the video, right before he picks up his puppy, was inspired by things in their house, like the Liza Minelli head on the mantle.
