@Murlsquirl Looks good but I would love a better quality pic, better lighting. It's hard to tell the color of the tie, purple/green? It's good now but it can be excellent. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thanks. The spoiler shows the close up of the tie. I live on the coast and it was overcast and foggy yesterday....and I leave for work at 0615. No way I was getting good lighting. I was stuck with my office and the terrible fluorescent lighting.

Subscribed. Nary a tie will broach my neck this week, so I shall be spectating only.

why are you holding a pokeman?

PoW seems to be popular in this FC. Since only the tie has to be soporific, I've tried to liven things up somewhat. To prevent everyone falling asleep, I hope...

Today's tie is as soporific as I (or the House of Charvet) get - you want anything more soporific, take an Ambien . . .

Feel free to DQ if deemed too energetic for this thread; it's about as sober a tie as I own, seems consistent with other entries so far, and I think it's perfectly respectable but I don't think I've ever read the soporific tie thread so it may be that SF has a more extreme definition. By the way, it's an interesting choice of word. When I'm feeling particularly & deliberately pretentious I've been known to refer to what we now tend to call hypnotic (or sedative) drugs by their older class name of soporifics. It's mildly entertaining to note colleagues' reaction to the semi-archaic term. I can only assume its use herein to label ties is similarly self-awarely ironic!

Señor Crust and Holdfast are certainly soporific by their standards, but I'm not sure they'd pass muster in the thread.
