Debate Tie Colors

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm sure many noticed in the first debate Romney wore a basically red tie and Obama a blue one, but that they switched dominant colors for this one.... Biden's tie last week looked signature Brooks Brothers to me, though I associate BB in general much more with the other side.

As an aside, was anyone else a bit awe-struck by both candidates' wives, at the debate last evening, both coming out at the end wearing bright pink? Was that a pure coincidence?uhoh.gif

Both sides are trying to win the woman vote. I assume that's why Obama was wearing a pink breast wristband (for breast cancer?).

 

And the suckers eat it up.

I came here thinking there would be a debate about tie colors. Seriously. And I'm a little disappointed.

 

I can see BB being Republican. What tie brand would be associated most with Democrats (not necessarily cultural liberalism)?

Anything Italian because it's Unamerican.

Can we please stick on this forum to men's clothing and leave the political trench fighting to other boards?

I doubt it.

Democrat: narrow ("skinny") and plain - trendy and youthful. You can see it throughout much of GQ -e.g. the way Editor Jim Nelson is portrayed in his photo. Possibly silly tie, too - e.g. cartoon, ultra-bright, etc. Or look at lesser known menswear periodicals and catalogs.
