Ooh, it's looking close!

 

Any ideas about what you'd pick if you do stay in the lead, sb?

Oops! Jumping the gun, sorry!

I'm not sure what I'd choose. Maybe a bow tie challenge? That will keep Spoo out of it... stirpot.gif

I do know that I won't be in the office on Friday, and I'll have limited internet access over the weekend. frown.gif

Quick analysis of the bold ties.  The largest percentage of the ties are paisley/floral.  Neat/geometric ties are the second most common, followed by plaids then stripes.  It was interesting seeing what people considered bold.  I'd say less than half of the ties are bold to me, but boldness is in the eye of the beholder.  I wonder if I would have gotten any more votes if I had on socks and wasn't wearing bit loafers.  The world may never know.  I'm looking forward to the next challenge.

Agreed ^^.  I would say more than half were insincere "loud" tie efforts.  Disappointing, but a deserved winner nonetheless.  To whom I say:

 

Sockless sneakers and cargo pants with orphan jacket and pink tie?

I think what we're seeing here is the side effect of SF's love for soporific ties and loud squares.

If I lose by one vote, just remember I voted for you, butch.
post #177 of 238

Agree with AAS that a lot of these didn't seem all that bold.  Perhaps that's a sign I need to reevaluate my tie collection...

 

Voted for SS, AAS, Spoo, and SeaJen.  SeaJen's was the least bold that I voted for, but just thought the overall fit was great.  And...none of them wore socks.  Clearly, I'm a dirty little skankle (skank for ankles).  Flash that knobby bone if you want my votez...

 

For the record, Sugar's tie made me vomit inside my pants.  Truly mystefied that he's in the lead. TEHO.

post #178 of 238

Of course I knew that you would both appeal to my wisdom but unfortunately my ifriendship to both of you precluded my getting involved in this decision...

 

 


like a mother forced to choose between children I chose both of ya. peepwall[1].gif

Seajen got my vote. Easily one of the boldest ties in the mix. And of those bold ties, his tie meshes best with the rest of his outfit.

HAHAHA as Spoo predicted... right now there is one vote difference!
