My good friend Eric e-mailed me and asked if I got a kilt for my birthday. When I told him I received five new bow ties, he replied that it was five too many.
So a bow tie will soon find its way to his doorstep, thanks to the good people of The Tie Bar, whose motto is, "Wear your good tie. Every Day." I will soon learn if E can resist the allure of the bow tie for men of our age. He is a big Marylander of decent stock, so I have no doubt he can pull it off. After all, he is the only man I know that can wear a fur coat and receive compliments.
The Tie Bar can be found on the web at www.Thetiebar.com. Their ties are 100% woven silk, handmade, stain resistant, and affordable to a humble blue collar worker such as I.
To the right is a photo of the five bow ties my wife ordered for me. I am impressed with them and wore the Fleur D'Orleans (center, yellow) to Passover last night.
For those of you who do not believe a grown man can pull of a fur coat, pictured below is my friend Eric donning his to prove it.
