The Complexities of a Dollar Sign Tie

Fashion can be a rather divisive topic. People often don't even realize that they're involved with it, but every article of clothing we wear can make a statement. Clothing can say a lot about our inner life, the ideas and ideals we hold dear, and what we want to communicate about ourselves to the world. That's the main reason why anyone should give some thought to every aspect of their attire. Even when one thinks an article of clothing will just be a silly lark, he should still think a bit in order to make it the absolute best silly lark possible. For example, consider the dollar sign tie. It's traditionally a way to poke some fun at oneself. But many people might not know that there's a variety of choices for it.

For example, the most traditional form of dollar sign tie is a plain tie decorated with money signs. While a fun design, it's not as eye catching as some of the alternatives. A person considering a tie in that style might instead go with a design that plays on the form of the dollar. One of the most popular examples is the photo-realistic style.

A photo-realistic dollar tie will have actual images of dollars laid out over the surface. One of the main reasons this can be such a powerful tie is that people are naturally drawn to bills. People are subconsciously cued by money and images of them. People's eyes are attracted to images of money, and their impression of whatever it's on will automatically improve. If a person has such a polarizing image on their clothing, it'll instantly draw positive attention to them.

A similar mechanism can be found with another form of money based tie. Instead of bills, the form of currency is coin based. A big difference here is that coins can be more artistically varied than a bill. If green doesn't go with a particular piece of clothing or event, a coin based tie might well be a better fit. The differences in color and design with a coin based tie allows a person a larger coordination due to the different varieties available.

When it comes to mixing and matching styles, one will of course also need to give some thought to the clip. One of the most entertaining aspects of these ties is the fact that there's a wide variety of choices for styled clips to go with them. A dollar sign on one's tie almost calls for a dollar sign based clip as well. One of the most classic choices is to use a clip which goes with the choice one didn't take on the tie. For example, if one uses a bill styled tie, he might choose to compliment it with a coin based clip. If one goes with a coin styled tie, he might decide to go with a bill themed clip. It can be a fun way of covering all bases at the same time and getting the best of both worlds.

On top of the background blocks, navy blue blocks are added in an alternating pattern so as not to completely cover the colors on the background. It is within the navy blocks of color that the classic white V and crossed swords appear.

This fun tie can be worn with any casual button down shirt with a collar. Trendy college students can create their own street look by adding this school tie to an oversize shirt.

The Bow Tie Set

Bow ties are the height of formal wear for men. They can be seen at all types of formal functions including weddings, graduations, cocktail parties, and business meetings. Many young men wear them when they are trying to look dressed up whether it is for a formal or social function. Their use dates back to the 1700s when the scarves for holding the top of shirts together worn by Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars was transformed by the men in the French upper class. When Pierre Lorillard V invented the tuxedo in 1886 he paired it with the black bow tie and created a look that has been deemed appropriate for men at formal functions until this day.

But the bow tie, in a wide range of unique colors, sizes and designs, has begun to make inroads in modern society. Not only are they worn by magicians and clowns, fashion mavericks have even begun to wear them at casual events or even as part of business casual attire. Today it is becoming commonplace to see men wearing a bow tie with a button down shirt and a pair of jeans. The truly confident wear large or crazily colored bow ties to any kind of gathering. Those bow ties draw attention to themselves and often become conversation pieces.

The basic bow tie is made from a ribbon of fabric tied symmetrically around the collar with a loop on both ends. Ready-tied bow ties with a band which goes around the neck are common because few men nowadays actually know how to tie a bow tie freehand. The other popular type of bow tie in common use is called clip-ons. Clip-on bow ties have small metal clips which are used to fasten the bow tie to the collar of a shirt. Although bow ties can be made of just about any fabric, they are commonly made of cotton, polyester, silk, wool or some combination of them. The best bow ties are usually made of silk.

 The bow tie set is composed of a bow tie with a matching hankie that is usually worn folded in the breast pocket of the outfit's jacket. These seem to be traditionally associated with serious, formal, Old World types. They are often worn by old country doctors, magicians, lawyers, professors and scientists. It's usually a sign someone has special knowledge(or at least those who wear them believe this). The people who wear them at formal gatherings are generally looked upon as men deserving of respect. Today even the jokester wearing the giant neon bow tie is looked upon as being different, special or unusual. Someone who is not bound by the conventions of the average person. Indeed, the man who wears the bow tie set is a man apart.

Do you want to make a fashion statement that resonates with the masses all over the world? Wear a bow tie set.

Saxophone Ties - Just So Cool!

In the world of business, a tie is often little more than an afterthought; a fashionable accessory that grants entry to an office or restaurant. But in the world of music, a tie can be anything the wearer wants it to be: a painting, a joke, a message, a puzzle. The saxophone tie, with its iconic sax depicted in a multitude of ways, fits that bill quite nicely.

There is, perhaps, no better instrument than the saxophone to use as a graphic motif. With its sensuous, elongated form and intricate arrays of finger pads and stops, it seems more like a fantastical machine than a musical instrument. Saxophone ties take full advantage of that fantasy in both color and pattern.

The ties come in every imaginable hue and color combination; everything from staid browns and beiges to psychedelic rainbows. There is always an edginess to them, a sense of razzle-dazzle and a bit of rebellion against the norm.

The patterns run the gamut. There are ties where one, almost life-sized sax covers the entire fabric. There are ties with saxes so tiny they seem almost conventional until viewed close up, turning what, at first glance, looked like common paisley into pinwheels of minute, musical instruments. There are ties depicting various animals playing saxophones; everything from elephants to crocodiles. There are even ties populated by saxophone-playing, mythological creatures. There are ties bearing messages of love for and attachment to one’s saxophone. There are ties boasting of a saxophone player’s prowess; mostly, but not necessarily related to music. Beyond that, customers can add their own logos or messages to a mass-produced design or even create a personal design of their own.

Saxophone ties with their cool images and catchy colors evoke indelible memories both in those who wear them and those who see them being worn. Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, even a former President of the United States make people recall sights and sounds of where they were and whom they were with on a day of fun or a night of romance. There is always a statement being made. I was there, be it at a world famous jazz festival or a smoky nightclub where some legendary saxophonist gave one of his or her history-making performances. I love music. I love being with people who love and make music. I’m hip to it and so are they. That’s the message that comes with wearing a saxophone tie.
