Tie as a fox…

Georg Festrunk: And here is a thing I will tell you: that two swinging foxes have the hots-on for us, and are coming here tonight to let us hold on to their big American breasts!

Yortuk Festrunk: [pours some drinks] Why not? There’s nothing preventing them. After all, there is no other pair of Czech brothers who cruise and swing so successfully in tight slacks!

–Steve Martin & Dan Aykroyd, two wild & crazy guys

How lucky that I haven’t used up this particular rhymed-tie pun/cliché, or whatever it is that I use for my subjects.

A couple of weeks ago I told you about my amazing field trip to the Lee Allison Company down in Chicago. Their studio on Webster is one of my new favorite spaces, and I’d love to work in a place like that when I don’t grow up. My tour guides, and fashion experts, Lee Allison and Trideep Das gave me a promotional code, which I used to purchase the Tie du Jour. It expired yesterday, but it won’t hurt to see if it still works–just enter 100TIES in the promotion code box at checkout. Their ties are amazing, as I will very soon describe…

Hey, is it soon already?

My TdJ is a piece of art, and a conversation piece. Many, if not all, of their ties have names, and this one is called ‘Foxes.’ My version of ‘Foxes’ is purple with gray foxes. As you can see from the closeup, it’s not just a regular gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus) conversation that dots the purple landscape, but another type of fox, one that may be classified as mudflapus nakedium hottieus. My Latin is a little rusty, so you’ll have to forgive my attempt.

Thanks for reading (and watching the video, sorry about the ad)…Brooke
