I didn't feel like firing up the camera, so I stuck em in the scanner. What makes them horrible: from left to right
Tie number one: 100% polyester. The gold is shiny, the brown is not. Inside the paisleys (not sure if you can see it at this resolution or not) are little designs that looks like penises and balls shooting golden orbs of sperm. Truely classy. Tie number two: 100% French Acetate.
there are about nine different colors on this tie. Most of it is mustard colored, there is also some navy, lavender,teal, white, green, and brown. They are all shiny. The surface is irregular and gives the impression that it is woven of recycled Christmas tinsel. Tie number three: 100% silk. Made in the USA. Brown, Cream, and teal. The main picture is several women using the telephone, whilst coyly looking about for eavesdroppers, but embossed into the texture of the fabric itself is a pattern of horrible blotches, some of which resemble ducks. The combination of the two is truely nauseating in person. My top three of the moment, but I'm always looking for more.
