Tie: Graham Withers / Shirt: J. Crew / Sweater: Lands' End Canvas / Toys: A Welcomed Distraction to Real Life
I’m keeping it short and sweet today as it hasn’t been the best start to what is actually a quite pleasant (weather-wise) Thursday. No sleep + cutting my hand + a perpetual feeling of nausea since rising from bed this morning = Not an ideal fourth day of the week. Even with the inclusion of playing with my WTWTA toys this AM, absolutely KILLING the LA Times crossword, managing to still look good (IMHO), and trying to calm down on the bus listening to Sigur Ros and Explosions in the Sky, I do not have high hopes for the day. But you play the hand you’re dealt, and I will grab whatever life throws at me today by the horns and wrestle that business to the ground.
Standard "on the bus" closeup. Blurry, yes, but I got that dude in the background and it was too funny NOT to post up.
Got this nice message last night: "Hello You are adorable. I love your blog. I unfortunately do not wear ties but i work with some amazingly well dressed men who do... This is a sneaky pic of my coworker Roger. He's far too shy to submit pics on his own. Black Label sportcoat/ Ralph Lauren "high society" tie/ Thomas Pink shirt/ Zegna pocket square. Today's theme is purple if you couldn't tell."

Some fresh faces. Nice to see. And, I have to say, Sam killed it today, earing him a tie from my personal collection.
Cheers all. Loving the couples pictures, btw. Keep it up with the originality. I am in talks with a few more companies who want to send a few ties this-a-way, and I will in turn send them your way.
Submit your pictures.
