Because they have complexes but a lot of other members including many non posting readers love that sort of thing. And, many mainstream Americans love Duchamp ties.

Before the credit crunch anyone who's anyone in London, certainly from Tony Blair to hedge fund guys to regional news presenters, wore Duchamp ties as an in thing.

Drakes do make very nice ties and the owner is a good stick: Drakes ties

I've occasionally seen the newscaster Mark Austin on news at Ten wearing Duchamp ties. John Sargent's another as are John Snow and David Dimbleby who chairs Question Time. They seem quite popular with those who work in media. This is Dimbleby Not sure if this is actually a Duchamp, but you get the picture. edit: Joshman beat me to it:

Yes, they are ugly as sin.

Well according to one guy in England, the second hand shops are positively brimming with unwanted Duchampers. I wish he would give a few addys of them so i could get some for the old collection.

I don't know about that, but you're certainly at the ready to deposit your droppings in any thread that catches your attention. How did this become about the ugliness of Duchamp ties and the supposed complexes of people who don't like them?

The same can be said of Hermes ties and New York City. In both cases, the ties are hideous. When "anyone who's anyone" wears a particular thing, it's usually because they are desperate to suggest they are someone.

Mark Austin is interesting because he tends to wear them under a chalkstripe. Brilliant.

I don't know that that's true in the case of Duchamp in England. Hermes is different. Loud ties and red socks go sort of hand in hand. I see them as the long-term effects of a youth spent in school uniforms.

Well let me tell you one insider thing.
Peter Mandelson always claims he's the first one who wore Duchamp. This is the story goes around Westminster.
To be honest I sometimes find the colours too strong in real life but on tv they look real good.

This is wonderful:

“One off” tie which is the sartorial equivalent of a snow flake.
I wonder what the tie-equivalent of a snowflake might look like. Delicate? Unobtrusive? Intricately wrought? Something with a light touch? No. It's this: Seriously? I mean, you're free to like this sort of thing, but to claim some kind of special aesthetic place for it is a little benighted. It looks like it's made from a pair of velvet leggings, c. 1984.
