TJ Maxx and Marshalls have a fairly good tie selection and they're all $15 or under. Their inventory is mostly department store overstock so quality should be on-par with Tie Bar or better. Not super high-end stuff but definitely wearable. I'm a young business student myself (well-- a graduate now). I've gotten a...

I've always loved the Pecos boot, but it just doesn't work for my feet, unfortunately.

At first I thought they were Timberland Colrain but upon inspection they are not. They appear to be a nice vintage looking 8 inch captoe. Any thoughts? That's a sweet vintage Seiko chrono he's got on
