100 Days of Ties

UPDATE 01/06/2011:

Alright – Here’s the update. The party has officially been named “Tied and True.” The venue is close to being inked. And on top of the party itself, I am urging everyone who comes to either donate some funds or an article or two of clothing to a charitywhich still needs to be fleshed out as well.

See you in a month!

RSVP now.

UPDATE 12/01/2010:

Here’s the plan: We’re having the 100 Days of Ties party in New York City.
When: Saturday, February 5th, 2011
Where: TBD

I will be flying in on Friday most likely and rocking out until Sunday. We’ll throw down somewhere Saturday night, toss back a few cocktails, shoot the breeze and toast to a job well done.

This is what we need: A place for the event and for anyone and everyone to RSVP on the EventBrite Page. Also, I am trying to maybe see if the 100 Days community could pool a few bucks and help out with my airfare to the city.

Let’s do this!


I counted, finally. The end of the 100 Days is officially January 27th, 2011 barring unforeseen circumstances that may hinder the wearing of a tie for a day. This takes into account legal holidays observed at my work. But rest assured, that even when i work from home or might be sick or take a day off, that tie will be on… Well, we’ll see about sick days I guess.

I started this project on a whim and to reup the style I let go by the wayside. Plus, my ties were collecting dust, and after building my collection, this aggression will not stand. At first, all I planned on doing was to wear a tie for 100 (work) days in a row. While this is not out of the norm for a good number of people, it’s not standard practice around my offices.

What started as a flight of fancy has turned into something more. As the days progress, I would like to see more and more contributions from readers resulting in a community of tie wearings joining forces. Just a group of people who like to look sharp.

Then, we party in NYC upon completion of the 100 Days.

January or early February 2011. Book your flight today.

  1. May I suggest the Tribeca Tavern? Great beers on tap, plus a cool downtown location up the block from Liquor Store, and around the corner from my favorite Manhattan restaurant, Walkers. And if you feel like spending an extra few bucks for a perfect place to stay, Robert DeNiro’s swank Greenwich Hotel is also within walking distance. Top-notch rooms, great service, and a laid back lounge make it one of the more modern, yet classically elegant hotels in the city. I should write this stuff for a living…oh, wait.

  2. Also locanda verde is right around there for some of the best homey, yet chic, italian in the city…

      It’s sad, I can’t remember so many of my fave NYC spots. I do know that Fred’s on the UWS will always have a special place in my heart for so many reasons. Chai Kitching out in BK (Billysburg) is amazing too. Some of the best thai I have ever had.
