It's always great when you can buy something for less than you'd normally expect, like cars at a police auction, wine at Trader Joe's, and tickets to "The Highlight Factory", which after the other night's Bulls game, scalpers can barely Hawk. Grab some high-quality ties on the cheap, from Windsor Neckwear.
Based in Nashville, Windsor's a line of classy silk/poly blend ties all sold for $10, started by two guys who decided to go into the tie-making biz after being unable to find classy yet inexpensive ones for a business event, so they took classes, bought equipment, and began making them for college fraternities, who everyone knows are the classiest men in all the world. All neck-cinches are designed by the partners and printed in batches of 50 or less, including standard guys like the oversized-patterned Electric Paisley, diagonal zig-zag-decked Solid (in navy, lavender, platinum), and striped models including the metallic green/gold Cross Hatch, which you really don't want to do, considering Orrin is a former member of the Committee on Aging. Aging!! Bowties come in the aforementioned designs plus shinier colorways like the peach/ burgundy/ gold Smooth Stripes and the turquoise Elaborate Paisley; they've also got a limited-edition line made up of 100% silkers that come with hankies, including the linear circle-pattern Pinwheel, which will let people know you're truly a busy Mac.
They soon plan to offer custom name-engraved shoes plus belts, cufflinks, and other suit accessories; for now they'll do custom ties in six to eight weeks at the same $10 price if you buy a bunch, a deal you might see in a couple days on seats at the Philips, as odds are against it seeing any Nets profit.
