Kwame Jackson, aka The First Guy Ever to be Runner Up on The Apprentice is now hawking ties. What do we think?

I've never liked Donald Trump ties, so I wouldn't expect much from his apprentice reject
.

I like the way the site's organized though.

That's what we really need, another tie company. What's the over/under on how long it takes for Krimson by Kwame to disappear?

I think it's funny that in the 'lookbook' most of the famous people that are featured aren't wearing ties...

I also disapprove of the soft Appreciation music.

Most of the floral and paisley designs look like bad Duchamp rip-offs.

The contents of the Look Book are just wtf

I like to see another entrepreneur out there that has a love for ties, I must say. Some of the designs are pretty cool, but too bad it's made in China. That kills it for me.

It also seemed like Kwame was wearing a Camel crew neck sweater (with a tie...) and khaki colored slacks....wtf?

I liked a couple of the ties, but for the price and the "Made in China" tag, I would rather spend my $75 elsewhere.
