The Tie Project, days 33 to 38

I think I like the format of posting the tie pictures in an aggregate, wrapup-of-the-week sort of fashion. At least it consolidates my time-frittering. Anyway.

This week featured a lot of outfits I've worn many times over the years and thus don't have to think about except insofar as needing to find the damn tie on the damn hangers. Like day 33:


Day 34 features two new (used) items, both Missoni bought for cheap! The sweater I bought along with the sweater in day 28 (which I found because I was searching for Missoni things to link to when I wore my Missoni shirt), and the tie was spotted by Rose at the same thrift store where day 20's tie came from.


Here's day 35. I particularly like the way the X shapes in the tie echo the X shapes in the shirt.


Day 36. I guess this is, in a way, an example of how I disagree with the conventional wisdom that plaids and plaids can never go together.


Day's 37's tie is another one acquired from the Cargo giveaway table. The shirt was a recent purchase, from the same shopping trip that day 34's tie came from. I saw this pairing and thought, well, I'll have to save that outfit for the spring, when it gets a little warmer (since the shirt is short-sleeved) -- but then the temperature broke 70 degrees, so I figured, what the heck.


Day 38 is actually an outfit I think I'm retiring -- I've had it for probably over a decade now, and I still like it, but there's a sizeable rip in the back of the shirt, and the interfacing of the tie is ridiculously twisted. So I'm probably bidding this combination goodbye, but I wanted to make sure it got documented:

And here, up until now I'd assumed you were all about adhering to conventional wisdom.

Holy Crap!

If there is anything better than pictures well matched shirt-tie combos, it's peeking over at flickr at the growing collection of tiles.

I love your shirts and ties! They brighten my days!

Oh crumblycakes. I seem to have typed out incomprehensible English in my shirt-and-tie-induced fervor. Please pardon my grammatical sins....

If each of the tiles were a postcard, I'd buy them all and cover a wall with them. No, really!
