THE TIES THAT BIND

Jim over at Jim’s Stuff Blog talked today about his stuff. More precisely his closet, more precisely his ties. Jim posed the question “What’s in your closet?” I thought I’d answer.




I was about to say that I don’t own a lot of ties. Although I did have jobs in the past were I was required to wear them. Then I stopped and examined the photo. The flowery monstrosity was from back at University when I would dress in that tie, white dress shirt, threadbare ripped jeans and combat boots. This was to coordinate with my Flock of Seagulls hair.

Second from the left is my first Giorgio Armani. This was purchased for a wedding in 199something…. Big silver was for my commitment ceremony with Dalton.



I guess I hold on to things more than I thought. So, what’s in your closet?

I have Patron hidden in my bomber jacket pocket, Cutty Sark in my BOSS wingtips, Jim Beam in a faux beaver overcoat, and an empty Smirnoff bottle in plain sight to distract you from the Grey Goose I hide under a "Kettle One" Beach towel.
