    @Xenon: That is a LOT of ties (and a lot of purp/blue)!

    @Mack: I wish I could get paid to put stripes of color together like many of those. :satisfied:

    Seems you have an affinity for satin geometric ties? :puzzled:

    I really like the storage method

    GREAT collection, G.

    Deets on the makers?

    Also, where'd you buy the rack?

    The sad part is there isn't a tie I can see in this photo that I would consider wearing...

    Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks.

    Still an impressive collection in its own right, though.

    It's a homemade unit mounted on hinges for easy access to both sides and can rest against a wall. The woods are purpleheart and maple mounted on bronze hinges.

    Actually my favourite ties are bold paisleys followed by bold geometrics, but I have far more paisleys in general. Some of these are works of art. The earlier Penroses and Duchamps are absolutely stunning IMHO. I have a couple Brioni paisleys with a deep black background and either deep purple or silver paisley and generously highlighted in 24K satin gold. Believe it or not these are quite tasteful.

    this is rack #1 for blacks, blues, purples, lilacs, fuschias, golds, & yellows. Rack # 2 is identical but for browns, greens, reds, oranges. I have a third cheap rack where my soporific (rarely worn/unloved) ties get relegated to such as stripes/reps, solids etc.
