Ties That Bind

From 2010 Blog
My necktie rack. I have been wearing neckties to work almost my entire career. So I have quite a selection, generally sorted by color. Necktie expectations have gone away in many businesses today in favor of "business casual" attire. However they are still an expectation for managers at my employer except on Fridays and during the summer months when business casual is allowed. It seems to be more an East Coast "thing" these days.

Maybe you need a Jerry Garcia tie for 'casual' Friday.

Great photo of a very familiar subject. There must be a hundred of these strips of cloth hanging in our closet(on a lighted, rotating mechanical tie rack... very high tech you know!) Love the variety of colors and patterns.

Janet, I do have a few Jerry Garcia ties and a bunch of Snoopy ties I used to wear every Friday. But this is the ultimate "reject corporate conformity" tie:

Susan, my tie rack is just stationary, no light no mechanical rotating, - plain old low tech. I now have tie rack envy. ;-)
