Young Man, Get a Navy Blue Blazer!

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

I was previously unfamiliar with the term Madder Ties, though, likely by some supernatural influence, I have always had them in my collection.

I blame public schooling.
I blame public schooling for a lot of my foibles, errors, and general maladroitness. I only learned they were called madder upon perusing a Brooks Brothers catalog. :D
Alas.... I have no excuse.

My dad told me a man should always have a blue blazer, one pair each of grey and khaki trousers, and a white shirt in his closet. It's the first thing you see entering my closet still today.

I inherited a few madder ties as well.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
