Also, spoilers.

 

This thread went off the rails and became the "I LIKE TIES" thread long ago.

Also, did you take a photograph of your monitor puzzled.gif

Of course, there are always knits, but its nice to have something to mix it up.

 

Well, there is linen.

For non-soporific ties there's this

and this

- there's no reason why this one couldn't be kept on topic.

I did :-) I was hoping that putting some effort in to it would convince people to put some effort into staying on topic. And you know, use spoilers when quoting long photo posts that were posted right above them, when adding one line comments. Oh well.

I didn't know about mildly unsoporific ties. A good niche, to which some traffic in this thread should be diverted.

+2. And a gentle reminder that this thread isn't a platform for posting ties youre trying to flog on B&S, that's what the B&S forum is for. Not singling anyone out but looking through the thread there's quite a theme of it happening.

And just because it's gone off the rails, doesn't mean it has to stay off the rails.

I'd forgotten how much members enjoy genteel fetishism and rule mongering in favor of content.

This thread has been much more about sharing interesting/classic ties than a literal interpretation of soporific. And even the ties that are the most sedate/monochromatic have often been from upper-tier makers, with details that are hardly boring: 10-fold, hand-sewn, unlined, shauntaung, etc.

For a quick refresh:

I don't see a problem if they contribute to the thread without direct mentions/links. Some of the sellers - including myself - enjoy taking pictures of items (often intermixed with personal items) and I haven't seen any here that are offensive in linking to items.

And are you serious?

This will be my last post in this thread. No ties are for sale and all have been soaked in diethyl ether.

Those look amazing! Especially the neats and elephant print ones in the first picture, and the woolens in the 2nd and 3rd pictures...

well I wont get in to an argument about that but the rules of classifieds and indeed the forum are pretty clear with that.

As for me, I am not a b&s seller. im a business and a forum affiliate ie paying advertiser. I pay quite a lot of money for a business of my size every month for that privelege, as do all the other affiliates. And even then, I still only put ties up here that qualify as soporific very rarely.

Sweet jayzus, fellas. Asking to keep a thread focused is not tyranny, and digressing is not a capital offense. Everyone lighten up.

Agreed. My posts are tongue-in-cheek in case they aren't read as such (except about CW - I do think he is a whiny baby).

And to those who asked - sorry I'm late but most of the ties are EGC. If you have any questions or would like to see any more pictures let me know.
