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.
