Jesse Tyler Ferguson has launched his own range of bow ties.

The 'Modern Family' actor and his fiance Justin Mikita have launched their own line of shirt collar accessories, through their Tie the Knot Foundation, which supports the fight for marriage equality.

He said: ''It's just a fun way to spruce up an outfit. Men don't get fun, exciting things to wear.''

Their fall/winter 2012 collection, which will be sold online exclusively by The Tie Bar, was inspired by their Los Angeles home and they admit coming up with the ideas was starting to take over their lives.

He told People: ''They are inspired by things in our home.

''We would be out having a nice dinner and then we would start talking about business. I would be, like, 'Do I need to get my notebook out? I can't remember all this stuff.'''

However, Justin says they worked well together because they both have different approaches to their work.

He said: ''I adore Jesse in all ways and I think we are very compatible personally and business-wise. He's much more creative and I'm more business-oriented. I get stressed out and have certain ways of doing things and Jesse can deal with it for the most part and that's half the battle.''
