Fashion faux pas that make men 'undateable'
February 14, 2010
By Adam Tschorn, Los Angeles Times
Unhappily unattached men folk of America, that soul patch beneath your lower lip may be discouraging a potential soul mate from sticking around through the salad course of your first date. And the stakes are as high as the waist on those dad jeans. That's right; while we've been taught not to judge a book by its cover, experts say that when it comes to calibrating long-term compatibility, the reality is that what men wear is the first — and often most crucial — criteria that women use to judge.
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.
Currently his finds can be seen at Nice Tie Store at http://www.nicetiestore.com Novelty Ties & Fashion Neckties at Nice Tie Store.
