A Billboard Too - they must have bank!
What is This World Coming To? In 300 B.C. Plato said he saw no hope for the future of civilization. I am sure that he would be equally pessimistic if he could see all this hate about neckties in this day and age. It is just a piece of fabric that is a simple fashion accessory. Not something worthy of hating?
Neckties have their second chance every year as gift item. Ties are still the number one Christmas gift for guys. It will be 100 years that fathers were honored on a special day this year. Giving a tie was a shoo-win as far as getting points with the old man "that gave you life." Certainly no small thing by anyone's accounting. Getting the keys to the car, extra allowance or whatever was the result of that kind gesture, even if it was a cheap $10.00 ugly as sin novelty tie.
But all that may change as the latest million man march is taking the country. Yes it is true. A movement to ban ties, making them illegal and those that wear them outlaws is well under way. I would think that ridding civilization of drinking a driving or guns would be a better use of time. But what do I know. How about cracking - that really stupid fashion statement that young men make because their pants are practically falling off. I actually believe that those guys have a problem that I call plumbers crack or little member syndrome complex.
Well I had to give these people equal space. It is a free world isn't it, at least the blogs are. Unless you are under some communist or religious fanatic thumb and cannot speak what's on your mind. But I will only give this mention if you read my blog post, "I Love Ties" http://nicetiestore.blogspot.com/2010/03/i-love-ties.html
And, also if you buy a tie from me on my web site http://www.nicetiestore.com/

The Enough with Neckties People have more than 10 times the total of my fans. See for yourself http://www.facebook.com/EnoughWithTheNeckties?ref=search&sid=100000311221581.1804750090..1
It is a bit embarrassing that I have my two nephews, a nice lady that helped me build that confusing page and myself as the total of my fans. Maybe its true - ties are out and I am a geek. No, just making fun of myself. Everyone else is a geek - that is unless you wear ties proudly.
I have to admit by mistake I clicked on the Enough With Neckties Page and that little clicker rolled over. So when they hit a million - subtarct one. He who laughs last laughs best.
And finally our response http://nicetiestore.blogspot.com/2010/04/got-neckties.html
Since 1996 Jeffrey Hunter has been retailing and designing neckties. Prior to his involvement in men's neckties he was a professional photographer shooting landscapes in Iceland, the US South West, India, New York City, Miami Beach, the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, and the 92 America's Cup.
He started selling ties in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego to car salesmen out of the trunk of 1966 Lincoln Continental and by appointment to stock brokerage firms. From 1997 to 2000 he operated two specialty retail kiosks selling ties in the Irvine Spectrum Center and Newport Beach Fashion Island. From the summer 2000 he has built web sites that offer novelty collector ties by Marvel Comics Spiderman, Disney and wildlife ties by Endangered Species. Included are really unique silk fashion ties by Electric Neckwear, and Martin Wong.
