Saturday Finds

Since I received a  this tie bar for my birthday, I have become really into wearing ties again. Everday, Monday through Friday, I wear a tie.

Last Saturday, while waiting for a spot at the local Salon, Ms. L and I ended up in what would be descirbed in the States as a ‘Junk Shop,’ or perhaps on a good day an ‘antiques store.’ Buried deep down in a pile of other unfortunately loud ties I found these three gems:

To the left we have Maroon with yellow shields of some sort, in the middle a classic 50s stragight across the bottom stunner. Which as a student told me last week while wearing another tie of similar cut, is a ‘cravata without a punta.’ Hopefully Ms. L can fix my non point nice an straightly un-frayed.  Finally to the right we have the real jewel of the haul, the classic Navy/Bright Yellow/Hunter/Canary Red repp tie. Upon turning it over I noticed this (excuse the mirror image text, and generally bad photography from my built in camera):

The showing part of the white tag here reads ‘Canton School.’ Turn the tag over and follow the text around, the whole thing reads ‘Canton High School B.’ As in, if you go to Canton High School, which coincidentally was the name of the High School I attended, you have two options to wear with your school uniform, tie option A, and tie option B. Amazing. And only five Euro each.
