The Vices of Man

Picked up this tie from my friend Mr. Alan C. I suspect he didn't really have much use for it, what being a pastor and all. It's known by several different names including "The Vices of Man," "The Doghouse Tie" and just "The Ugly Tie." As you can see, the vices are represented by the cards, golf clubs, and glasses of beer, with the dog house existing as the implied consequence.

The fairly conservative nature of the tie belies the real surprise, though...

This polyester beauty is primarily redeemed by the fact that it is from Trimingham's, a store that was not only located in on the beautiful island of Bermuda, but was also mentioned in The Official Preppy Handbook (it has since closed).

I have one of those - older, to go by the Girl Within. A splendidly cheesy item.
