    I'm loaded up on ties and shirts are far more versatile so this was a very easy question for me.

    I'll buck the trend. TIES. I tend to get plain colored shirts and then wear patterned ties. I have about a 110 ties and maybe 15-20 shirts that I wear with them. It would be nice to have a few more but I'd still rather have more ties than shirts.

    Seriously, I wear a tie maybe a dozen times a year. Wedding, funerals, speeches. If I wear a different tie each time, that lasts me two years, easily.

    I enjoy my shirts *much* more than my ties. I like a nice tie as much as the next guy, but to me a nice shirt that fits well is so much more important. That being said, I voted for ties.

    The problem with ties is that I get tired of them and I find that I need a much larger selection to still be interested in them. Whereas I love each and every one of my shirts and am always excited to wear them.

    I am always trying to weed out my ties so that I will have under 50. Not the case with shirts, collection keeps growing and growing.

    Shirts. Presently I have more ties than shirts, but I'm trying to weed out my ties and add to my shirts.

    It's hard to imagine an end point where I might be satisfied with enough shirts. There are endless combinations of checks and stripes to tempt me and I often buy similar versions of favorites. With ties it is much easier to contemplate an end point (not that I plan on pulling back any time soon, mind you). [​IMG]
