There is never a time I've seen a unbuttoned BD and though it wouldn't look better as either
a) not a BD or
b) actually buttoned...
:/

That thread has entered Bizarro world.

By the way, how does everyone arrange their ties in storage?

By colour, by material or by some other criteria?

That is for the valet to deal with.

Hang most of them, no real rhyme or reason (which is strange as everything else in wardrobe is by category then colour, eg shirts together and run from white to navy, black leather shoes sit with black leather shoes and so on).

Knit ties and some wool ones in a box (but starting to hang all but knit ties). Might need to look at organising the ties on the hanging rack. Only structure so far is bowties at the top.

I long ran out of room on my tie racks - im tripling up on rungs now - better ties on top so the crappier ones are used as protection hehe

 

im half considering getting metal bars and a step ladder to organise my suiting though and at the same time I might get bars installed to hang my ties too 

 

Ive got high ceilings so I can get two levels of suits in if I do it and probably would need to rotate top and bottom by season. hmm writing this out sounds like a lot of work... need a batman style mechanical popup cage that sink back into the floor and automatically organise my suits in a stacker style arrangement.... inlove.gif

Same here. My Big W ties on the bottom and Roger David ones on top. Got a couple from that suit shop on Bridge Road that are class, keep those in a separate drawer, naturally.

I get very nervous about letting the help come up with their own ideas - one must provide some sort of direction or guidance.

Understood but are they arranged in any particular order? I mean, if you knew you had a (say) grenadine tie in a particular colour/pattern, would you know exactly where it should be or would you have to search around?

Do you suffer from tie anxiety, Gez? Do you wake up in the middle of the night in fright - 'Brown grenadine! Top right draw?' - and then leap out of bed to check? Have you installed security cameras so you can check on your ties online during the day?
