100 Days of Ties. Or 119 if you're keeping track.

It’s September 3, 2010. I made the decision, today, I will wear a tie each and every (work) day, from now until the end of the year. So it’s less than 119, actually.  It’s nothing Earth-shattering, but it’s time I re-stepped up my game and got classy again. I’ve been hoarding funds as of late and am in dire need of a shopping spree for new neckwear and clothes in general.

Today’s tie comes courtesy of my friends at Lumina, where methinks it’s proper to drop a few bucks on this. Slick ties, great people, good price. Diggit.

Now, do I have the gumption and follow-through to see out this “a tie a day” goal?


  1. Interesting. On Tuesday, June 22nd, I launched the “No Socks Summer” campaign. I have gone 73 days strong and as summer nears its’ end, I have been thinking about debuting a “Fall Fashionable Sock” project. Thoughts?

    • Funny you mention socks. I was just thinking about how underrated the sock is as an accessory. I feel it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. That said, I applaud and encourage your effort and idea.

    • I love happy socks, actually. They were on Gilt awhile back. Shoulda copped a pair.

  2. I’ve instituted ‘Tie Tuesday’ for the better part of a year now. It’s a fun tradition. Maybe I’ll step my game up and get on it every day like you’re doin.

    • Gotten a lot of snarky comments and some really nice compliments so far. I work in a town that’s very laid back, so ties aren’t necessarily worn much. When I started working here, I got lax in my wardrobe. Feels good to ramp my game back up.

    • Hey someone’s gotta bring a bit of class to a town of hippies, trustafarians, and frat bros.

  3. I think a great vest is also a nice way to dress up the usual work wear situation for men. I work from home so it’s nice to make the effort when I need to go run errands, etc.

    • I, too, love a good vest and have a few from the Crew. Thanks for reminding me. Gonna bust those out STAT.

  4. Hey man. I love the blog. In case you haven’t checked, J. Crew is having a pretty rad tie sale . You would appreciate it.
