Happy Valentie’s Day

February 14, 2012

Well, I’m actually writing about today’s Tie du Jour, since my subject was named by Julia. It’s kind of obvious, but I’d not thought about it. Good to know that part of my wacko brain has been passed on for the next generation.

This magnanimous celebration of pink was created by Izod; or, more likely, an Izod buyer claimed 100 just like it at a clothing mart and had 100 Izod tags attached to it. The pink really called out to folks today, as it garnered a few compliments. I don’t think it’ll make TieXchange level, as it has a small pull in the tip.

It’s from the PKos collection, aka the ties of the late, great Paul Kostuik. Paul was not only the father of my friend Paula, but also a very good friend of my parents. Paul’s widow, Donna, sent a box of spectacular strips to Paula for her to give to me. They are worn proudly as I salute the Kostuiks.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
