http://www.tieworld.com.au/shop/inde...roducts_id=543 wonder if that's any good. I think what is needed is a filing system for ties. While we are at it, seeing this is a digital age, there could also be a automated system for matching ties, suits, shirts etc. Digital photos of all clothes and shoes and belts and ties would be entered into a database. It would be coded along the ISBN or a library system of categories and a panel of respected forum posters (is "respected forum posters" not a oxymorn?) would pair ties and shirts and jackets etc. Each clothing item could have a embedded chip and by scanning each day with a mobile phone or something then the igent would have a list of suitable clothing to wear. It could be linked to weather reports and also to a daily calendar of ranked meetings etc so that the appropriate dress was worn at all time with minimal thought or effort. Another app or program could indicate a "rotation"cycle and yet another a "time to clean" warning. With further enhancements to indicate when a new or replacement item was needed to be ordered automatically online. This could also be connected to a monitoring of online clothing forums, certain posters, exchange rate and current TV programs set in another era to warn the individual when an item was about to get get "hot" and become de rigeur amongst the cognoscenti. An automatic "buy" could be generated. It will be just as important to have a "sell" warning when an item is going off the boil and is being worn by any old idiot with an internet connection. The sell command would need to occur as the item was going off the boil but before it became worthless by being totally non U. This is only the germ of an idea but I'm sure with further thought from the experienced members here we can once again make australian ingenuity at the forefront of ... er ...something.
