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:

That's a lot of damn ties

Here they are all organized in my closet:

Lookin nice

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.
