    They should hire themselves to dads who need their Father’s Day ties to have an “accident.”

    Pastis should wear a tie with his white t-shirt.

    We could put a noose around the people that make ugly ties, but they already did that.

    Goat, demonstrate the ties that bind on Pastis with Pig’s unwanted ties, and tie it up with a gag order on the puns.

    There’s a steakhouse in Tucson – Pinnacle Peak – where if you wear a tie, they make a big deal of cutting it off and hanging off the rafters or wall. [Never checked about bow ties]

    Back when the company for which I worked expected us drones to wear ties, I made it my mission to wear the most outlandish ties I could find (starting with Ralph Marlin, and working my way down into seriously vintage stuff). It bought a little joy into an otherwise rather “Office Space” environment.

    Once upon a time my family was helping my grandparents move out of the home where they had lived for nearly 25 years. At one point I was tasked with going through my grandfather’s ties and fully 90% of them got tossed because they had stains on them. My grandfather’s explanation for why he kept all of them: “It reminds you that you ate a good meal. If the meal’s not so good, you don’t eat as much, so you don’t get as many stains.”

    I wore ties from seventh grade to retirement at age 64. I learned to like them- a lot. They’re a wonderful vehicle of expression. A wise man once likened the male ensemble to a painting, the suit being the frame, the shirt and tie the picture. I owned 100 ties. I was even brand conscious. I’ve become an elderly ragamuffin – but I keep a blazer and a few favorite ties in case of emergency. One must always be ready to pretend to be civilized….

    I cut ties years ago. Haven’t put one on for ages. Even funerals these days are very casual attire.

    The last time I wore a tie on purpose was for my wedding, New Year’s Eve of 1983. I was the first person in our engineering department to never wear a tie (circa 1979), although they wanted us to when meeting with people from outside the company. I still remember how to tie a four-in-hand, a half Windsor, and a full Windsor knot. Not that I’m likely to wear a tie ever again.

    There is a tradition in Germany, at least the Dusseldorf/Cologne area that during the festival time (Mid Feb) the women go around and cut men’s ties. When they do this the men have to do what the woman asks. Get your minds out of the gutter, the vast majority of requests are usually something funny and ridiculous.
