I've had a love affair with vintage ties for a long time. As a teenager, I would rummage through my dad’s ties, pick out the funkiest one and use it as a bandanna in my hair or a sash around my waist.
When I got old enough to start shopping at thrift store’s, I would bring home vintage ties, give them to my dad, but then borrow them from time to time for my own fashion adventures.
After the counselor and I were married, I started bringing home vintage ties for him. He’ll wear just about anything I find. He’s cool like that.
When my son’s wanted to started wearing ties to church, I told them “Go pick out one from your Dad’s closet.” Would you believe they each came out with a vintage tie? These boy’s are after my own heart.
I've told them I'd buy them a new tie of their own, but they want to stick with their dad's vintage ties.
I love me a man in anything Armani. This vintage Armani tie was a great find for $2.99.
Thanks for letting me borrow your tie, babe!
