    +1. its the job of sisters and brothers to critique, and it doesn't matter how old one becomes. It will probably go on forever.

    Ha ha!! That's a great idea! I actually have considered just untying the thing every time someone comments on it. If I was more adept at tying it without a mirror, I would!
     
  6. Good gravy! I am glad I am an only child. :p

    Has anyone purchased ties from The Cordial Churchman, and what can you say about quality if you have?

    I have not, but he is mentioned on a couple of other fora I visit and the comments are always positive. NB: the ties are made by the wife of a presbyterian minister, who himself sports a bow tie and seems more trad or preppy (in the best sense of the word) than vintage.

    I can't fault him for that. As long as he is promoting the bow tie :)

    This one was quite the pain in the butt to tie. It is a Carrot & Gibbs, but the silk is much thinner than I am use too. Trying to get the sides even was pretty difficult. What you see is how I left it for charm.

    A no-name tie, with a label guaranteeing "100% Acetate" construction. Skinnier than I'm used to, but I like to think it slims me.

    I think it's only a southern California chain, but Stein Mart is carrying some Rooster brand bows at $14.99. That's one of the brands I see at Nordstrom rack, for about the same price.

    I like this one. It reminds me of the X-men logo... oh no... my nerdiness is showing... I better see to that.
