This tie has two labels - one simply says BAUER (24 is on tonight!) - I'll go out on a limb and assume it AIN'T Eddie. The other says LUXIRA® - TREVIRA® 100% POLYESTER.

The problem with ties like this is the pattern ends up taking almost half of the tie, so I can't really make a nice 200x400 scan and capture the entire pattern, without ending up with a lot of space on the sides, as seen on the right. Of course, when the OTHER problem with scanning so much of a tie and then shrinking it down to the normal picture size (which was pretty much completely arbitrary selected one day) is you don't get a sense of all the fun TEXTURES possessed within a tie. Even the closeup doesn't really give you a sense of the fact that at least one (and possibly a variety of) machine(s) put way too much work into manufacturing this thing. And I'm SURE that *I* probably ended up spending like $1 on it because that's what I DO, MAN.

I'm taking tomorrow off so no more ties until Monday. But you can look at this one again later this week if you're pining!

This tie is unspeakably beautiful. It's like Grid Systems come to life. And orange is so hot right now!



The only thing I enjoy more than doing the crossword puzzle is actually finishing it.

The little orange and light blue parts look all nice and textured. I bet it's really nice to wipe your brow with.

I actually like this one, not too shabby at all.

Yesterday's, on the other hand (I think it was yesterday's?), was just horrible beyond my wildest dreams.

This tie is unbelievably great. Just stunning. I am so jealous. The weird thing is while the pattern/layout looks all seventiesish the texture/way its sewed (at least the way from picture) more suggests like 30s but its polyester. I need to talk to someone who knows more about history of ties to better explain.

I can't figure out wether it needs to be worn on a Dacron or 100% cotton shirt to really bring out all of its striking features.

Damn.

Yes, ESPN and ESPN2 will break from showing women playing tennis (rolandgarros.fr) in order to broadcast LIVE the championship round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee (spellingbee.com).
