I have mixed feelings about this tie. Somehow I think it's ugly, but I like it at the same time. I actually got a few compliments about it at work today, although my friend told me it was gay.
This tie is a little bit ugly, but surprisingly didn't look too bad. I think it woula looked better with a yellow shirt, but this one works too. By the way, the shirt was $5 at goodwill. I wasn't very happy in this picture, because I was greeted when I got home by a mess of diarrhea in my room from my sick dog :s
I'm Shane. I recently got a job that lets me dress nice if I want to, or in jeans and a polo if I want to. I've always worked in places where I've had to wear ugly polos, and I actually have secretly wished I could dress nicer. Anyway I started buying some nice shirts, and a couple ties, and one day I was doing some searching online for ties, and tie accessories when I came across an awesome listing: 49 ties from someone's uncle who had died. Bidding was at $1, and 4 days remained. I decided to bid up to $20, to see what would happen. I mean, if I got them and 2 of the ties were good then it would be worth it. The days went by with no bids, and eventually, I was the proud owner of 49 ties, for the low, low price of $1.25 (plus $18.75 shipping). A few short days later, and a 6 pound box of tie arrives at my door. Please do enjoy the wealth of tie:
Here they are all organized in my closet:
I am going to attempt to wear one tie every work day, except casual Friday, until I have worn them all. This blog is here to follow me in my awesome tie-journey. The fun begins tomorrow.
