For working men who have to wear professional apparel, there’s nothing quite like the neck tie to perk up a dark suit during the wintertime. It makes perfect sense to add to your (or your husband, or significant other’s) tie collection by shopping the men’s area at your local Goodwill. With less than $20 in my pocket, I went in search of some cool (and perhaps even a bit artsy) ties that I could bring home to spruce up my own wardrobe, or give as gifts to dapper friends.
The men’s fashion bible, GQ (Gentlemen’s Quarterly) has a lot of articles about ties in the link here. Everything from the return of the unusual tie, to how to tie a bow tie, as well as how improve your tie game in general guys! Take a look at the treasure trove of designer ties I found at the Goodwill Store & Donation Center in my neighborhood.
- Countess Mara tie $1.99
- Lord and Taylor floral $1.99
- Thomas Pink London $2.99
- Polo Ralph Lauran $2.99
- Sears classic red $2.99
As you can see, my ties stack up well against those of the fashion pictures I’ve taken over the years at various fashion shows. Style is in the eye of the beholder, so get out there and tie one on this new year!
