A young man (a former student) texted me last night – “Got any recommendations for a tie?”
He has a new, charcoal-grey suit and needs something to wear with it.
It so happens that this week, on ebay, you can nab a Thom Browne / Black Fleece tie for a song. Well, more like a song and 50 bucks for a bow-tie, 85 for a regular tie.
If that strikes you as expensive, let me say this: one Black Fleece Tie is worth 4 non-Black Fleece ties, pound for pound worth of awesomeness.
I have lots of ties I like, but the ties I love are Black Fleece. Check these out while they’re still available!
A grey-plad beaut. (Bow tie)
Purple and block cotton. I own this one and bought one for a friend. It’s amazing.
Black Gingham. Classy meets country.
Plaid – classic with bold scale.
Grey wool – plaid. Gorgeous.
That said, if an impressionable young man with a new suit asked you for a tie recommendation, what would you say? Fashionistos, please help this young man! Reply below and share your wisdom! His sartorial future is in your hands…
Possibly Alexander Olch? Or Pierrepoint Hicks.
