Something like this bowtie I have from J Press. Its pretty simple, and I feel like it would probably appeal to people who arent G-town grads/students as well.

But those blue crab cargo pants are so much more compelling.

David,

Here's what Mincers is selling for UVA ties:

I think some thinner stripes would look more elegant personally but maybe this helps you match the color.

Yeah, the infamous crab and lobster shorts.

On a side note, if one were to make a crab and lobster tie, I would be unable to resist purchasing it (and this would get me in big trouble).

I will refrain from suggesting Texas A&M (maroon & white) but will add an illustrative story.

I show up to a training session in standard corp attire - charcoal suit, white shirt, maroon tie with 3/4" while polka dots. The gent next to me arrives in identical attire, including the tie. To add to things, we were of similar build, face color, and hair color, and had graduated from A&M on the same day. I changed my tie at the lunch break.

That said, I do find the Longhorn tie appealing and hope your future ties are very lucrative for you.

I am putting in a vote for the Maize and Blue of Michigan, that should make a sharp tie.

Mine is from the mid eighties and I still wear it. It is a traditional repp weave, not what is shown in this picture. I love the fact that the tag on the back says The Bookstore.

I'd be mildly interested in a Penn tie but it's a challenge combining that particular blue and red so it's not boring as well as dull. The U.S. flag benefits from the addition of white.

Any Huskies out there? one vote for the University of Washington's purple and gold.

However, I would never wear a tie that is too boldly gold. The gold would have to be overwhelmed by the purple.

Here is the only one I can find on-line


Note how much gold there is--ugh. I wonder if all purple with rep stripes made of the W logo in gold would work? There is also an official Washington Grey that looks nice.

Kent, Thank you. Are you doing something with graphics and computers or am I not remembering correctly a post of yours from a while ago?

Sounds like a good idea. What are your design thoughts?

Chorse123, I am glad that you loved the Longhorn tie. No plans for crests.

I had one like this until some SOB stole it from my dorm room. Anyhow - I think equal widths would be BoRiNg. How about alternating widths? 1/4" red with a 1/2"blue with a 1/2" red and then a 1/4" red? It would be unique. And of course, once you get the tie down, don't forget bowties! I am sure I can get fellow members of the Penn Alumni Club here in Michigan on board. Hell, maybe we can get DaimlerChrylser Chairman Dieter Zietsche to wear one (his son is a junior in the Penn engineering school)

I operate a web development firm, yes.
