.It's been fun collecting ties to make Victorian Collars and great meeting lots of interesting people, both customer and artisans at shows.
You can tell a lot about a man from his ties. A friend's grandfather was very conservative, probably sophisticated, based on the collection she gave me. All expensive name brands but all the ties had a similar look.
A lady at a yard sale gave me her husband's collection. Beautiful silk ties with colorful designs and holiday themes. He wore them often because some were too far gone to use!
This photo is an example of conservative and playful. The playful tie got a new life. I'm still working on what to do with the very conservative tie.
