The Spider and the Tie

Sittin’, thinkin’, sinkin’, drinkin’ / Wond’ring what I’ll do when I’m through tonite – Jagger, M.; Richards, K.

Once again, I go back to the Stones for some subject-title inspiration. No reason in particular, I just seem to use them every once in a while.

You know, I have realized that, beyond the fact that I’ve lamented my neck and head pain in the last few days, I’ve neglected asking about you. How are you? Are you feeling okay? Are you ready for the holidays? Any big shopping plans for Black Friday? Is there something, besides a tie, that you really, reallyreally want for Christmas (or Hanukkah)?

For the Tie du Jour, I basically stuck with the same autumnal theme, at least with similar colors. This baby is an old vintage tie from the old vintage Marshall Field’s, which has had its history swallowed up by Macy’s. Nice deep crimson red background, with khaki, olive and black stripes joining the festivities. This one tied up really nicely into a half-windsor, a nice, tiny, symmetrical knot.

This morning we were hosted by the folks at 415 Premier Apartments, down on Howard, for the Chamber’s monthly Networking Breakfast. They just put a couple million bucks into renovations, and the place looks fantastic. I was able to get Jeff, one of the concierges there, to pose with his awesome red tie. Welcome to the Guys With Ties family, Jeff!

Well, boys and girls, after breakfast there’s a meal called lunch. Can you say lunch? Very good.

Anyway, went to lunch in the new neighborhood, at a place called Siam Splendor, at the corner of Emerson and Ridge. Our waitress, or hostess, rather (it was a lunch buffet), was sporting this tie which was knotted in a pretty cool way. Since this picture was kinda the unauthorized version, I didn’t get her name. So, we have a new member of the other GWT, Girls With Ties.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
