#tiethursday – Jan 9 – Go Niners

Posting for the 2nd week in a row. This is a sure sign of real commitment.

Look at that dimple.

It’s the start of conference play in basketball tonight for my beloved Charlotte 49ers, and I wanted to show my gameday support with a new tie I received from my sister and her fiancĂ©. The school colors go surprisingly well with the waistcoat, which I think just makes everything classy.

You can purchase this tie for yourself at and you can catch the Niners in action tonight against UTEP on CBS Sports at 9 PM. Go Niners!

#tiethursday – Jan 2 – Fresh Start

If you’ve ever spent a Thursday with me since late 2011, you’ve probably noticed that I’m wearing a tie. It’s just, one of my things, I guess. It all started because I had a new tie I was excited to wear, but then I realized other people wore ties on Thursday, and it’s a nice juxtaposition to casual Friday. Long story short, I wear a tie on Thursday.

For 2013, I’m going to try and keep a log of it here, since I have a quite a collection of ties by this point. I’ll post a picture of the tie and a few notes.

This is your fetish, isn't it?

I wanted to start the year off with a bow tie, which I typically save for special occasions or celebrations. I consider the beginning of any new year to be a reason to celebrate. It’s time to reflect shortly upon your past and then forge ahead with a new clean slate. This particular tie doesn’t get out much, so I decided to match it with a brand new white shirt. Here’s to 2014 being a great year.
