This is a tie that I bought BEFORE I joined SF so dont go nuts on me. My question is why does this tie suck?
I am scared to ask how many ties you guys have in your closet...
Too busy. You've got a solid white stripe, a textured white stripe, and a textured blue stripe. Would be better if it were limited to a solid white and solid blue stripe.
Something can also be said about the shininess of the silk. Looks very cheap to me.
someone start the thread now.
i do not think they are contained in a mere closet.
Noodler, these are all better
Spoo is too cowardly to post a picture of his collection. I've asked before, he always declines. I think he's afraid.
Don't know why people hate Shiney ties lol. These are all better except the middle one.
I actually dislike white stripes as well.
Also, this is now on sale:
HC has great 6 folds. And at 60 bucks on sale, it's a fantastic deal. Had I not just gotten something very similar to that from NMWA, I'd be all over it. Edit: went ahead and pulled the trigger on this anyway.
In terms of tie battle--I have around 150 ties, but only about 100 of them would be SF approved. I suspect this puts me in the middle of the pack for tie lovers.
This? Otherwise, I am not seeing the tie above.
150 ties?! holy macaroni and cheese! I have like less than 20. Five of which is despised by SF.
Two thoughts that came to my mind this morning as I walked thru the Capitol Hill...everyone is where dark navy suits or black suits along with red or blue tie. I also saw a bunch of yellow ties and blue shirts. I don't know what it is about this city but there seems to be something like the need or want to conform to the majority. (Maybe sort of like the Korean businessmen).
I tried on the brown neat that I recently purchased and wondered, maybe this aint the best colour for me (someone with my complexion or skin tone). You white folks have a lighter skin tone so the brown tie is fine but I think it is a different story for me. This is just a random thought that I had while I was looking in the mirror. Just a thought.
I was wondering how does that tie looked yesterday, cause in the site it doesn't look very brown, to me looks like gray but this pic show the tru color and it is fantastic. I might should kop!
Noodles, I told you to get burgundy. Did you get burgundy yet? It will work with your skin tone. Just like the brighter-than-I-would-choose green. So will rust, and yes, even yellow (but go mustard, not custard). Just stick to the plan. Burgundy. Now.
The brown is fine though. You're just not used to it.
Betel knows a good tie when he sees one.
Stick with the brown dood
