André Jacques

While not an actual theme week, I am making an effort this week to wear some of the ties that have been hanging in my bedroom for over year (or two) that I haven't gotten around to wearing yet. This vintage polyester tie by André Jacques (probably not the same Andre Jacques who owns this Battlestar Galactica fansite) comes from England and has a very unusual pattern, evocative of terraced stone retaining walls viewed from above, or perhaps sidewinder rattlesnake tracks. I've been seeing this tie at the start and close of every day for so long that it's going to feel odd not seeing it anymore as it's consigned to the "worn" closet. But it will leave space for a new tie on the bedroom rack. Yes, neckties are not just fashion accessories, they can also be room decor!
