No fucking way.
what kind of storage is that? incredible
Sean Crowley, a tie designer for Polo.
@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.
Thanks bro. Very nice compliment.
Seems you have an affinity for satin geometric ties?
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...
Wow, very nice collections
Thanks. I got the racks were from Ikea. I'll get maker's up later today.
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.
