Unlined ties.

I have to say, I much prefer the softer, lightly constructed ties of old. It looks like Ralph Lauren is making almost exact replicas of them now. Naturally, I couldn't resist snapping one up... This one is available at Ralph Lauren's Rugby website for about $50. For that price, it's one of the best ties I own. Ralph Lauren's main website also has some ties that are unlined, but they won't say so in the listing. Check out the pictures and description. I've seen them called "Bleeker" ties on the Ask Andy Forums, though not on the website. By the way, does anyone know how to get rid of all this dead space to the left and right of my blog? I'd rather it be filled up by the blog posts and side bar, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.


  1. Every Trad in the blogsphere thinks college students should dress the way you dress. If you started teaching a "How To Dress for College Success" class would anyone come? Your fellow students need A LOT of help dressing. Distressed cargo shorts and flip flops are not, contrary to popular belief, right for every occasion.

    You can't really do anything with the space in the left and right columns. It's standard web page template construction: the columns act as "dead" space that can contract and expand depending on the size of the viewer's browser window. The only way around it is to design your own blog template. You have to know how to code in HTML (or buy a beer for someone who does - and knows how to upload the template to your blog account)!

  2. I don't really wear ties to class, but I did yesterday because it was a special occasion. Most of the time I wear jeans and t-shirts because of the hands-on stuff I do in classes. It doesn't really allow for nice shirts and trousers. I appreciate the thought, but I'm not really the best representative!

    I just noticed the HTML feature in Gadgets. I suppose I'll have to get someone to help me out there...

  3. What a classic tie! Very sharp. I picked up a few similar not too long ago.

  4. I'm digging the cardigan and I'm wondering if you know of places to get thin ones like you're wearing. Most cardigans I see are made to wear in the deep winter and seem too hot to wear.

  5. Thanks Robby!

    Steven, I would check at Banana Republic. Their silk/cotton ones are pretty lightweight.
