The Ugly Tie

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Just got this as a freebie with one of my eBay purchases. Not sure what to do with it. I don't own any ties that even remotely resemble this. What say the sartorial brains of SF? Would you wear this tie (if so, with what?), or would you consign it to the trash heap? I love a challenge but this one may be beyond me.

How is the construction?

Seems decent. Tag says Andre Gianni. The silk is very fine and the tie itself is a very light, almost unstructured (to use an analogy) feel to it.

The other tie next to it looks much better.

Haha, yeah. Another of my recent acquisitions.

Wow. I would leave them negative feedback.

Anyone else? Is it unanimous that this one should go in the trash heap?

I don't know man. Maybe you are really adventurous in your fashion and you like clashing prints. Maybe you make a living as a novelty tie saleman. Unless you are one of those two though? I'd say kill it with fire.

I was thinking it might come in handy if I ever decide to dress up as Arsenio Hall for Halloween. biggrin.gif

Give it to Goodwill, try putting it up on eBay (there are probably people to whose questionable tastes that tie appeals), or use it as a shoe polishing cloth.

I am not a big fan of it. If you can't imagine ever wearing it, just give it to a friend or donate it.

What did you purchase in order to get a tie like that as a freebie? I'm thinking something along the lines of a Cosby sweater.

 

Kidding aside, you might have to cut your losses with it (luckily it was just a freebie)

Could you make it into a PS? It might be kinda funky.

 

Otherwise, give it to Goodwill. And hey, at least you can't say you didn't get what you paid for. smile.gif
