Unseasonable

People have been warning us about the harshness of Ithaca winters for the past six months, but it is still unseasonably warm and looks to stay that way through the next week and possibly beyond. So today I wore a tie that is unseasonably bright. It's a heavy (and wide) vintage tie of cotton by Liebert, a brand that has more hits than misses in my experience.

I think I'd have to ask you to leave the room after about 5 minutes, if you had that tie on. So far out of all the ties I've seen on the blog, only this one annoys the hell out of me. Harsh, like Ithaca winters.

I could've broken you sooner if I was trying to, but there are some ties that even I won't wear.

I'm sure there are many ties you won't wear, but are they simply unfashionable or butt-ugly, or are they physically painful like this one?

Now I am totally interested in what you won't wear. THESE are the ones that would probably make my best paintings sing.

I was given about 2 dozen of those butt ugly ties for Christmas and I'm cooking up a new idea in my head to use them all. Stay tuned... I think these ones will be wearable.

Hi, Catherine! Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year! I've got your new site bookmarked. The wedding tie painting looks great in our new house!
