Style Forum club tie - Page 9

post #121 of 166
I do not work as a lawyer. Having said that, I spend a decent part of my free time volunteering for various charitable causes. I get no publicity.

I disagree that if a forum member takes on this project he should mark up the item. After all, the tie sellers on this forum are getting free publicity here for the ties and other items that are part of their regular lines. Consider this project to be like the pro bono work done by lawyers.
It's very nice of you to volunteer others to provide their services for free. In case you hadn't noticed, Jonathan and Chuck, the tie merchants who post here, are Contributing Members, which means that they have donated money to keep this site going and which is more than I can say for you. Whatever publicity they have gotten from participating here, they have more than paid for it, both with their money and with their contributions to the discussions on this forum.

I didn't volunteer their services. Hell, I know exactly where to go to have these things made. I'm not about to volunteer my services, either. If I did, I'd do it for no profit, but I think that this is a horrible idea.

If, if, if. Conjectural beneficence is remarkably risk-free, isn't it?

It is.

Anyone have a web site that translates lawyer-speak?

Sorry, Steve. But having recently received Carlo Franco's red paisley tie, I might venture to guess that the colors in that tie were inspired by the Styleforum's color scheme. So, perhaps (1) J. could sue Chuck for some of the profits of the tie, and (2) we could make that tie the official Forum tie.

Is this true, Chuck? I have patented and trademarked the Pantone colors for this site (including #FFFFFF pure white) so any use of either of them in a product is grounds for a trademark infringement lawsuit. We might be able to settle out of court for a narrow black or dark purple seven-fold, though.

What a fun thread to read. How did I miss this? A think a tasteful good quality tie, with the humourus 'club' idea is brilliantly fun. Reminds me, however, of a professional society tie that was given to me--it was polyester. Then there were the silk ties with drawings of parasites and virus on them. Hmmm. I've never wore them.

It'd be much cheaper and simpler to have a secret handshake. Or tie knot.

I have the red paisley as well. It's gorgeous. A bit dressy for daily wear, but certainly worthy of a look. It is nicer in person than in the photos...

I love 1Dgaf's idea of having a club knot. You can wear anything you'd like, but you'll be instantly recognized as in-the-know because of the way you tie your tie. Brilliant.

Whatever became of this idea for a SF club tie?
post #134 of 166
Yeah really... I want one!
