The Tie Project, days 62-67

Onward and tieward.

Day 62. Rose bought this tie for me on her recent trip to San Francisco. She said it was the one good tie in the used clothing store she went to, and it was the first one she spotted (from a distance, yet). Good eye! The shirt looks sort of plain at first glance, but it's actually a lovely multicolored weave, with yellow, blue, and red threads (among other colors), that work together to give an overall dusty pink effect.


Day 63. Another solid shirt, but I love the color. The tie is handmade, although not by Rose. I bought it used, but it's clearly not mass-produced.


Here's the full outfit, with sweater:


Day 64. I just cut straight to wearing the combo with the sweater this time. Another solid shirt! Crazy. I bought this shirt at Daffy's after deciding that I needed a few more shirt options for events where I wanted to be a little more conventionally dressed up, but still didn't want to be wearing something drab -- hence a shopping trip for solid but appealingly colored shirts.


Day 65. Flowers! Patterns that I favor generally tend toward the non-representative, but I often make exceptions for flowers.


Day 66. This is the shirt from day 52, with the tie that typically accompanies it (another Rooster).


Day 67. Special action shot, taken at a party! Shirt is from Daffy's, and the gorgeous Duchamp tie was my Valentine's Day present from Lorinne. I'll have to redo this shot later with better lighting, but I think it adequately documents the fabulousness:

I need about eleventy-billion yards of the fabric that went into that last shirt!

Congrats on the excellent tie/shirt combos from a fellow odd tie-wearer in New Zealand!

Hi - would you consider selling the Duchamp tie? Kind regards Jon

Sorry, Jon (unless your offer is at a now-I-can-retire-early level).
