    Here's a contest. Post pics of the worst tie you have in your collection, or come across at a thrift store. Pictures from the internet don't count - you have to have the tie in your physical possession. Also, only 'real' ties please - no joke ties (extra large clown tie, etc.)

    My recent find:

    Someone, somewhere and at some time loved that tie so much that they actually spent money they had to earn to own it. That saddens me so much.

    I definitely have some of those non-real ties - a few that you can push a button on and they sing Christmas carols, for instance.

    I definitely have many 80s ties that are truly horrid.

    I'm confused, the man eating bear rendered on a background of soft pastel colors. Maybe this is the "spring" version.

    Reminds me of those heinous animal tee-shirts that have stayed oddly popular with certain tourist crowds: [​IMG]

    Alex,

    To win, we must see a picture with you wearing the tie. However if you do that I am quite certain you will win.

    Even over that horrible First Air Cavalry regimental tie that was pictured several weeks ago.

    Though not in the league of the tie posted by Alex, I sold both of these extremely ugly ties on ebay. I guess the atractiveness of a tie is a really subjective thing. Someone thought both of these were attractive enough to buy.
