100 Days of Ties: Day 29: Juxtaposition


Shirt: H&M / Tie: Unis / Vest: J. Crew / Outside: Sunny


See, now, the vest, tie, and fresh-cut hair scream clean, while the untucked shirt lets everyone know I have a playful side as well. It may look like I’m all business sure, but take a closer look. Yeah, that’s right. That shirt’s untucked, son. And yeah those are JEANS, my man. Maybe you’d think that me donning a vest would also mean I am touting a killer pair of pressed slacks. Not the case, my friend. Maybe next time I’m wearing a tanktop… That would really throw the world outta whack.

“Last spring, I took a 1 month sewing class with the intention to learn how to alter/tailor my clothes & thrifted clothing finds. This burgundy colored tie was one of the first items I made in the class. It’s a skinny tie at 2.5” width made from a heavy cotton fabric from an old blanket.

I definitely recommend anyone to take a sewing class, it opens a lot of opportunities for you to rework your pre-existing clothes by learning how to tailor them. Plus. you learn how to create your own clothes/accessories like ties inexpensively.”

“This is the 1st tie I purchased right before I went to college back in 2003. I thought it gave that ‘I’m a man now’ look.”
