We live in Seattle, which, I firmly believe, is one of the most casually-dressed cities in the US. I've gone to the theater and the ballet and seen people wearing jeans! Personally, I love to dress up and do so on every occasion, but my husband loves and embraces the Seattle casual atmosphere. Which means that his "fancy" clothes are scarily out of date. Particularly his limited tie collection- I'm fairly certain that his mom bought his ties for him when he was in high school (in the late 80s!) and he's not really done much to update them since then.
So, when I got an opportunity to receive a new necktie from ABC Neckties, thanks to my involvement at the Product Review Place, I was thrilled! We have some family weddings coming up this summer and I want my husband to live up to his maximum handsomeness potential! I asked Daniel to browse the site and let me know what his three favorites were. After clicking on the link that I sent him and starting to look around, he emailed me back and said that there were just too many choices and that I would have to decide for him. Which was fine with me :)
He's right, there are a ton of options on the ABC Neckties site. They have big and tall ties, bow ties, silk ties, solid ties, a huge variety of novelty ties (including cartoon ties, fine art ties, Hollywood ties, sports ties, and SO many more!), pretty much any type of tie that you're interested in. The site does have a lot of options, but it's easy to search since you can look by style, novelty or color.
We ended up choosing this Olive Green Woven Grid Silk Tie. It arrived quickly in the mail, and Daniel and I were both very impressed by the tie. The color was true to what we had seen on the website, and the tie is clearly made of high-quality materials. This tie sells right now on the ABC Necktie site for $20.36 (currently on sale!).
Here's a picture of Daniel modeling his new tie- he's a little out of practice for tying ties- we realized we should have gone with one of the ABC Neckties' pre-tied ties! I think this tie is going to be a really nice one to have in his wardrobe for all the dressy events coming up this year and beyond!
