Black ties, black shoes.....
I want to be a libertine and endorse the freedom of shoe color, but I tend toward black tie/black shoes, too. The burg can work, though.
Of course. And when you guys are having sex, you only do the missionary position, right?
I have never had sex with Cleav or Six.
How do you gents deal with a tie "bubble" where the tie from being folded as stretched a bit and creates a bubble, usually right in the middle of the front blade? Thanks in advance
Throw it out.
Iron it? I keep my ties rolled up so I don't get the bubble. Can hang them by the middle too, but folding is for fools!
We wear black shoes while fucking
I'm just glad that we've reached a point at which an all-male three-way (missionary or otherwise) is considered humdrum enough to be solely the domain of those who believe that one should wear black shoes with a black tie.
And to quote that great philosopher, El-P, I fuck in my church shoes.
Ironing is a last resort, or close to it, I think.
suitntieguy: First try rolling it up reasonably tightly and leaving it for a couple of weeks. It can't hurt.
Fair enough. Truthfully I've never ironed a tie... do you avoid ironing because it tends to cause more wrinkles at the edges than it could get out?
Last night was a big freak out moment. I have a lot of ties, like many of us on here. I have about 60 of my best ties stored in tie boxes. I reached for a tie 2 days ago and noticed a bubble. I posted my question and did some more research- silly me, my ties shouldn't have been stored in boxes. I quickly unboxed all my ties. The only ones that still have a bubble are my cappelli 3 and 5 fold ties and a few grenadines. Obviously ties as nice as cappellis are worth sending back to Patrizio to re-fold. Now working on a new storage solution. But man was the other night scary.
I have ironed a couple of ties with cloth between the the iron and the tie. I would not do it on any ties I own now.
Ps I have 60 tie boxes for sale (Tom ford, Brioni, hober, cappelli, nieman Marcus).
I have 100+ ties and they are folded in drawers. It's getting pretty cramped in there. I can see where you coming from where it might show up on a lighter tie, but this should generally fall out. I occassionally rotate them and move the fold elsewhere. I agree, it is a bit of a blind spot, but rolling or hanging would take up 300x more space. Not sure I want a dedicated tie hanging room... yet.
FWIW you could store them in those plastic tie sleeves, which should provide an air pocket around the fold.
All that being said, a lot of stores leave ties folded for a long time and they seem none the worse for wear.
