    It dawned on me today when I was choosing a tie that I had quite a few of them. Thirty nine to be precise. How many ties do other members own?

    120 last time I counted them. Way too many for my needs.

    Certainly over 51. Probably 150. About 50 are in active rotation in any given season. Probably 50 are too wide or otherwise out of style.

    i only have about 20. i want more, given that i wear a tie every day, but i'm incredibly indecisive when shopping for them. so i just ask for ties as xmas and bday gifts.

    I don't let myself have more than 40. When I start to accumulate too many, I quickly have a B&S fire sale so I can buy more. [​IMG]

    Around 40, but considering I wear a tie maybe once a month, I own way too many.

    Hopefully The Purge will one day extend into my overstuffed tie collection.

    I'd guess between 40 and 50. More than I need given my current lifestyle, but I somehow seem to collect them if I see them at a good price with the idea that someday I'll need that EXACT tie so my stash keeps increasing.

    I've created a rack that doubles as a wall covering, so I get some utility out of them.

    How many ties do other members own?

    Well over 100... perhaps around 150.

    When in college (25 yrs ago) the father of a friend was a haberdasher. His suggestion to us was that we should budget for one new tie each month. He would probably have meant to add "...until you have enough". But I've mostly continued the practice ever since.

    Quick math says I should have 300 by now. I don't. Not yet.
