Get Ready for #NeckTieThursday   4 comments

Louisiana Tie for #necktiethursdayWhen I started at my current job over a dozen years ago, one of the biggest perks was “business casual.” Prior to that, I generally had to wear at least a tie. Getting to wear khakis and an open collar was a perk.

I’m rather surprised that I’ve joined in with some of the newer guys in the office, to wear ties in the office. As I have mentioned before, I had a whole stash of ties that I simply wasn’t getting the opportunity to wear. I think that I wear ties perhaps three or four times a year, and typically not to occasions where, say, a Snoopy tie is appropriate.

What I discovered? Well, men are fairly boring dressers. Absent ties, we all look fairly the same. Guys, tell me if you’ve heard this: “How come I didn’t get the memo” when a conference room contains men all wearing the same shirt.

Each week at my office, a few more guys are wearing ties. I’m going to invite the others on the Internet to join in. If you do so, tweet about it, with the #necktiethursday hashtag.

  1. I am wearing a necktie today to work. A classic Looney-Toons peeking out of a traditional tie pattern. It’s a good 15 yrs old :) I specifically like that it has Marvin the Martian on it.

  2. If I ever find my ties (I own about 4 and can’t account for any of them), I’ll join in. I LOOOVE ties… on me or on men.

  3. So, are you getting people to wear ties on Thursdays? Hope you will share some of your wackier ties with us!

    • Our numbers in my office have increased. In fact, some of my peeps on Twitter were expressing interest. Week after next, the phenomenon may grow!
