Today marks a return to the hand marbled tie, the very category which kicked off this blog on August 11. This particular tie is by Marblesque of Australia, produced by Brian O'Malley and Bridget Gardiner for their Rooftop Clothing company. Marblesque ties are generally more adventurous than mainstream marbled ties, which would look perfectly at home in an "Old World" decor store (e.g. Kirkland's, The Bombay Company), while Marblesques could easily grace the shelves of stores like the late, lamented Psychedelic Store of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, or one of its modern online imitators. I don't know if Rooftop Clothing is still a going concern; I do know that Marblesque ties turn up very infrequently in the US, but when they do I'll be snapping them up, thank you.
