    I always liked Noddy Holder's taste in ties...

    When I was done with college and needed to find a job, I looked at what the heads of the companies I might have liked to work at wore and bought clothes that looked like what they were wearing. That included power ties.

    It's nothing but a uniform and the pay sure beats wearing fast food polyester.

    Surely Paisley is the only proper TDPRI Power Tie?

    It's not the tie, it's the knot.
    Half (Single) Windsor for the casual look, but Double Windsor for a real professional.

    My third job out of college on my first day at work setting up my office, my bosses' boss came in to welcome me and the first thing he said was, "take that tie off".:oops: Only times after that, that I ever wore a tie was working at a consultant firm much later on, making presentations to rather conservative clients.:cool:

    Black or red are fine for me, as long as the copper wire inside is adequate gauge. Keep it in phase though! :lol:

    When I wear a tie it is this one.

    Haven’t owned a tie in close to 20 years. I bought that one for my fathers funeral then used it for one other funeral about 5 years later.

    The only tie I’ve worn in the last 12 years is my retro ‘80s bright red “skinny tie” that I wear for reunion shows with the band. It matches my red high top Chucks.

    I have a few ties left over from olden times, horribly out of date I assume. If I have to go to a funeral, they’d do in a pinch. Of course, I’d need a suit to go with them.

    Ties these days pretty much signify you work in the service or repair industry.

    I thought ties were meant to be blue, so as to go with blue shirts. Don’t really do them anymore.

    Matching tie and pocket square is strictly for "bush leaguers, turkeys and wet smacks," once you go down the rabbit hole of the secret vice.

    I'm glad I don't have to wear a tie very often.

    When I do, it's a clip on.

    The idea of wrapping a piece of fabric around my neck that could be used to strangle me at any moment simply doesn't make sense to me.

    When I was in the classroom, I wore a tie everyday. Except for the days that I wore an Aloha Shirt.

    Toward the end I had almost 200 of them.

    None of them were traditional "power" ties.

    My favorite was Alfred E. Newman with a Santa cap.

    I have a whole collection of them, but my Taz ties now reside with my pastor, since he is a Taz fan.
