The Tie Project, days 151-156

My week of wearing nothing but solid shirts took its toll on both me and Rose ("Where's the man I married???"), so there was a palpable sense of relief when the Tie Project resumed its normal course.

Day 151. Old shirt, new tie. I have historically worn this shirt with the tie worn on day 153 below. Next time, probably.


Day 152. Another old shirt, new tie combination. I used to wear this shirt with one of the sunflower ties -- I liked the color contrast -- but somehow it wasn't working for me anymore. At least not this day. But I was very pleased with this maroon and tan paisley-on-paisley combo.


Day 153. A lot of brownish pairs in a row. I got this shirt at the Salvation Army in Williamsburg. It has a big rip on one of the sleeves which I didn't notice when I bought it, but it turns you can't see the tear when the sleeve's rolled up.


Day 154. Again with the old shirt, new tie thing. You'll see the other tie I wear with this shirt in a few weeks (I'm a bit behind on posting photos), but I think I like this one better. The colors match really well, and I like the way the tie makes the green in the shirt seem more prominent.


Day 155. Yay, another shirt for my maybe-favorite tie! I forget where I got this Hawaiian shirt, but I love it. It's not vintage Hawaiian (the fabric is wrong), but it's way more comfortable than vintage Hawaiian. Mmmmm, sweet sweet rayon.


Day 156. A new tie for the shirt from day 115. No way to say which combo I prefer. I love them both!


Next time: The world's skinniest tie.

Dear Tie Maven:

I never thought I would have an encounter like this, but last weekend, it happened. My in-laws brought back gifts from their trip to China, and they gave my husband a burgundy silk tie with a repeating print of pandas loitering around a bamboo grove. What can be done with such a tie?

Help me, Tie Maven. You're my only hope.

Hard to say exactly without seeing it (although it doesn't sound very promising). E-mail me a photo.

Hmm. The camera's batteries are dead (both pairs) and the charger seems not to have been put somewhere obvious after its return from England. The photo will have to wait, alas.

ARGH, I can't believe I forgot to show you all those ties when you were at my apartment. Some other time.

Really like buy wow gold! I get buy wow gold day to day. Would shop for buy wow gold once more. More posture service can be significantly better.
