The First Howard Yount Striped Tie Design Challenge winner

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
Congratulations to Parker, the winner of the first Howard Yount tie design challenge! The order will go in soon, with ties to follow in around 6-8 weeks.


The Challenge: design a striped silk knit tie for Howard Yount. The Competition: strong, with many excellent entries. The Prize: the winning design will be custom made for us in Italy (with a flat end and/or pointed end) and available on our site within a month or two, with the winner getting a complimentary tie in their design.

This will be tough. I'm slightly disappointed by the lack or purple and green

Well, maybe you should have worked up some purple and green entries.

^ I like others to have a shot at the brass ring every now and then

So many submissions and we have no dots? Edit: Lol, obviously I didn't know that this is a striped tie contest...

I must say, I'm pretty impressed with most all of the entries. That being said, my vote has to go to Parker on this one.

Yeah man, I hate a striped tie contest with no dots.

Ha. Quite a few guys seems confused by the straightforward idea of a striped tie contest.

Truth be told, I would buy any of these. But I voted for #1.

Just curious what font that is?

I'd be wary of selecting too complicated a pattern. A horizontal stripe is already quite strong.

I don't even think my best entry made it to the finals, to be honest - and mine weren't the best of the bunch. It's hard to vote because they're all nice. Can they all be made?

edit: mine were the best, vote ROBASAURUS so I can have a free tie!

For some reason I like Parker's, I think it would look very cool as a knit and I would definitely be tempted to pick one up if it is the winner.
