They sell ties in the bathrooms of clubs these days patch[1].gif? I guess I should go out more.....

He didn't say what he used to pay for this tie. I'm going to guess it was non-monetary in nature...

We have to hope this is true. Otherwise the world is an even more f*cked up place than we thought.

Ugh. I hate this phrase. Most people who are forced to wear a suit and tie to work aren't exactly snappy dressers, yet they will always try to "fix" your tie when they see you wearing one, because they have been "doing it for years and know how to do it properly"...

 He meant well and is a good friend. biggrin.gif

 

 I had just bought the tie at a Goodwill store. rotflmao.gif

 

 I looked at a Macy's and a J. C. Penney's and didn't see one tie that I would wear. I'm not ready to spend big dollars on a tie yet.

 

 I have several from the thrifts that I like and will wear.

That is why there is a difference between wearing and dressing.

Id like to turn the trajectory of this thread towards balloon knots.

start a new trend. although, I think the ladies would be turned off by a tie that smells like @sshole

Is this the "I am shocked to discover that there is gambling going on in this establishment!" type of astonishment?

Don't wear 1" ties.

 

In all seriousness, those look good on nobody. If you're 5lbs overweight, they make you look 30lbs overweight. If you're within fit range, they still look too small. If you're anorexic.. well, there you go.

 

I like anywhere from 2.5" to 3", with 2.75" being the measurement that fits me best. I believe that's 'reasonably timeless'?
