    No way I'm exposing my silk to all you voyeurs. [​IMG]

    Plus I only own 15 at the moment due to a recent re-ordering of my universe.

    Missing about ten ties that I like. A friend had a job interview, so I lent him a healthy selection (he got the job, so I gave him the tie he wore, a navy Brooks Brothers 346); I've not had the opportunity to get them back yet.

    The bottom right is my "trash pile," gifts or eBay mistakes. They get a home in my utility room.

    1st: Thomas Pink, Brooks Brothers, Thomas Pink, Thomas Pink, Banana Republic, Hugo Boss
    2nd: Thomas Pink, Brooks Brothers 346, Thomas Pink, Thomas Pink, Brooks Brothers, Ferragamo
    3rd: Dunhill, Hugo Boss, Banana Republic, Fendi, Ferragamo, Thomas Pink
    4th: Thomas Pink, Brooks Brothers 346, Banana Republic, Thomas Pink, Thomas Pink, TRASH!
    5th: Brooks Brothers, Kiton, Hugo Boss, ???, Brooks Brothers
    6th: Brooks Brothers, Thomas Pink, Turnbull & Asser, Banana Republic, Banana Republic
    7th: Hugo Boss, Fendi, Brooks Brothers, Hugo Boss, Thomas Pink

    Also not pictured are my knit square ends (they didn't roll up) and my not quite trash ties (they don't get piled up, but they are hanging and aren't rolled up).

    I feel that was an hour well spent :) .


    EDIT: I was just informed I spent closer to two hours doing that. Also, I was rushed or I would've taken 3 additional pictures of ties to fill in the space.

    EDIT #2: JRD. Your collection makes me want to be a better man.

    Probably better asked in the ask a question thread, but you guys might be more knowledgable.

    I always thought rolling your ties was the best way to store them. Clearly I am mistaken. What sorts of ties should be stored rolled, hanging, etc?

    i hang all my ties, personally. i imagine, laid flat, like the vox collection, is truly the best/most optimal way to store ones ties. however, i dont think its practical for most people.

    ^^ a lot of great ties in there malford, thanks for posting them. since you are by no means a ties noob, have you found, leaving ties rolled for an extended period of time, to cause them to no longer drape properly when worn?

    Not at all. Although - given the room, I would probably opt for a the laid out approach :)

    Alright. So laid out is superior (makes sense). Don't have the room for that, so what about rolling vs hanging?

    Yes please (with respect to this thread)!

    I'm in the rolled crew too. Had them slightly folded, lying straight for a while but didn't like that method at all (and don't really have the room). Where do you guys fit those hanging tie racks for decent sized collections? They seem just as unwieldy as a drawer of them laid out.

    well, i guess that kind of answers that! good to know. and yeah, i wish i had that kind of room too.


    i think most people would say hanging. though malford had no issues with rolled, and he is quite reliable.

    Hermes orange untipped cashmere and Drake's grey / blue.

    These are my keepers I'm afraid (although I'm always trimming down!)
