Comments: The Tie Project, days 180 to 187

I would really like to have five yards of that little-red-boxes fabric to make a dress of ... and yes, that last combo of swirly-lines shirt and swirly-lines tie is inspired!

Oh, that fabric would make a great dress for you! Maybe if you come to Daffy's next time you're in town, they'll have enough of those shirts that you can buy a bunch, take them apart, and make a dress out of the bits? Perhaps not.

Those socks are fantastic. I want them.

Day 187 is superb!

What's this? You wear ties?

How do you organize your ties? By color, by pattern, not at all? Have you built a special rack for keeping track of all of them?

I am imagining some sort of library cataloging system for shirts and ties, with little cross references on each tie card for acceptable shirts and each shirt card for acceptable ties...and definitely a ladder on wheels to get to the ties that are out of reach...

Also, I am in awe of the sheer amount of ties and shirts you own.

I keep them on five wooden hangers with no particular system of organizing them, which comes in less than handy rather often. (There is, for instance, a tie I've been wanting to wear for a few days now which I can't find. But it'll turn up eventually.)

Add a resident hot librarian with glasses and her hair in a bun that keeps coming undone to the shirt-and-tie library with the ladder on wheels and I believe you may have just described the perfect clothing storage system. I guess now I have one more life goal to strive for.
