How many ties do you own? - Page 5

post #61 of 74
I own 6 ties; and I don't like 4 of them.

Should probably take a look at B&S. I can't believe some of your huuuuge ties/bowties collection!

I have two tie racks -- one holds 36 and the other holds 24, and they are both nearly full but not quite there (enough that I've got a nice gradient of colours going on and spanning pretty well the entire rainbow).

That said, it's for the sake of collecting -- or maybe some sort of anticipatory stocking-up for a job unlike what I have now -- as I currently wear a tie only two or three times a year. But that didn't stop me from adding seven-folds, grenadines, and some respectable brand names (Hermes, Stefano Ricci, Tom Ford, Brioni, Louis Vuitton, etc) to the mix.

I have 200 or so, but about half are not really appropriate for regular use (they're from museum exhibits -- so too flashy -- or hopelessly dated fashion items). I've been decluttering my life, but haven't yet taken the step of culling the tie herd; I have four 24-tie rack holders, so my aim is to reduce to 96 ties. Perhaps to 90 so I have 6 open spaces for new acquisitions.

I'm not counting the 20 or so bowties and 30 or so ascots; so I have almost enough neckwear for a different piece every work day for a year. (I wear ties regularly, mostly because I like to.)

Probably about a hundred now - I had a good clear-out last week and donated a lot to the thrift and gave a handful of good ones that weren't my style to a colleague who mentioned he was short of decent ties.

My challenge is that my everyday tastes run to the sort of Drakes / Marinella small pattern print, but I always get tempted into buying slightly unusual ties and then never wearing them. Much of what I cleared out were items that wouldn't sit well in a corporate environment, even if they amused me.

About 30, including a couple of bow-ties and cravats. I don't keep what I am not likely to wear again, so I regularly clear out. Many are vintage, mainly 50s and early 60s knitted jobs. Of contemporary designs, recently I have tended to favour Liberty of London, and texture (tweed, mixed fibres etc.). I sometimes feel like I should have a few more simple classic pieces.

too many, my wife is scared of me branching out into her closet space soon

Probably 30 or so. Every year or so I cull a few. I probably have about 20 in active rotation.

close to 200.
post #71 of 74

well... i unfortunately lost count it's over 200 i think...unfortunately it doesn't end with ties... i think the 

reason behind is it gives me the option to choose on what color blends with what and when

and how you feel on that day...

After consigning some to Luxe Swap and donating a few to charity I have some 70. Should suffice but there are temptations everywhere...

Not many, 23 exactly, and most of them are crappy. A few of them are decent and two are actually good (Marinellas). I've just started building up a quality collection and I no longer buy cheap ones.
