An online journal of my life among the wild neckties.
Sunday, November 27, 2011
Today's woven-patterned polyester tie is a relic of a Washington, DC menswear institution: it's by Bronzini, "made expressly for Raleigh's, Washington". The Raleigh's at White Flint is where I bought my first serious necktie. While the Raleigh's name went defunct in 1992, a group of employees bought it out and continued the business as Boardroom Clothiers in the White Flint location. There is now a second location at Tyson's Corner.
