    Soporific Tie Porn

    Am I the only one who thinks that is wildly redundant?

    "Soporific" is meant to modify "tie" but not "porn."

    Don't you have a siberian longhair with matted fur to tease or something?

    This is going to rock your world, but we actually have Porn "talkies" on moving picture devices now. Sometimes it's even more exciting then decorative neckwear (and it even includes decorative neckwear on occasion).

    I think you did not understand my point.

    FAIL. More fun to tease the callow.

    Maybe you need to pull some doves out of your sleeve or something for him to understand.

    I think most of my tie collection is pretty boring.

    Boring ties are the best ties, IMO. Same thing with shirtings.

    I prefer for eccentricity and vibrancy to come out through less-boring suits and shoes, as well as tasteful accessories. I really dislike the look of a loud shirt and tie worn with a sober suit and bland shoes.

    This thread is really not delivering in the boring stakes.

    the wool and cashmere ties were accumulated over many years and are all different makes, many of which aren't available any longer

    if you like the wool ones, check out this sale

    I can't get excited about ties. The fetters of the modern man. I tend to buy mine from Charity shops - 50p a throw. I have few silk ones. Horrible things. The alternatives? Bow tie - only suitable for the consultant surgeon or the older eccentric professional. Cravat - suggests that one "bats for the other side". Only the OAP be-tweeded gent can get away with it.

    Sometimes I cannot wait to be old in order to pull such things off and not care at all.
