    If Cleav does a tie gallery then I will have to as well. Although I cannot say that mine will be as close to as spectacular as his will be.

    Naturally I was already working on it! [​IMG] Incidentally, this process has shown me that I now have over 100 ties. I don't even think it's close to overkill either.

    Wut? Ties are boss. Why don't you want to be the boss, Noodles!?

    I just sold 20+ ties at a garage sale. Mostly old silk hella-wide monstrosities, too-skinny Ben Shermany/Penguin type stuff, and a few ok ones that I just wouldn't wear anymore.

    Now I'm down to maybe 35 and can think of 10+ off the top of my head that I'd like to add. I only have a handful of suit/jacket options, so ties and squares keep it more interesting. Plus I buy a lot of ~$20 pre-owned ties on ebay.

    Because... TIES! If there was one thing that was ok to obsessively collect, this is it.

    I am building up slowly by buying ties that I really like. I am a minimalist.
    I collect gold bars, not ties. [​IMG]
