My oldest son is currently in Florida, serving a 2 year mission for our church. These young men dress in white shirts, dark slacks and ties 7 days of the week. We have found that ties are important to these young men. They are the only thing that they really get to change up in their wardrobe.
However, the weather being HOT, HUMID and RAINY, has done a number on his ties. He asked me to start hitting the thrift stores and purchase him old polyester ties. He said "They might look ugly to you, but they're loved by us missionaries." I took that as, -Don't care if they're goofy- I found that the DI (local thrift store) asks $4.00 for a used polyester tie. I think that's ridiculous!
This week I happened to bring this up with a gentlemen I work with. WHO....happened to be throwing out his polyester ties from his mission. STOP THE PRESS!!!!!! SEE BELOW!!
TALK ABOUT VINTAGE.....LOOK AT THESE BABIES!!
a box full of vintage. They are wonderful
A good wash is what they needed. They're polyester, what could it hurt???
NOTHING ACTUALLY. They washed up beautifully.
I lost count at 80, so....80 plus polyester ties headed to Florida. Funny thing is....they will LOVE THEM and wear them.
Look at the beauty on the far right....It's a bright purple and blue. The green with flowers is lovely to. Does any of this remind you of your dad or grandpa????
This is the one we suggest should be worn first!!!
LOVELY!Thanks Craig........our son will love these.
Put this on a pillow: I will dare to do just what I do, Be just what I am, and dance whenever I want to.
