Garfield? or is it Uncle Sam?

This is the tackiest tie I think I have ever seen, and Hubby wore it to work last Thursday!!

You have to understand, Hubby is a total snob when it comes to clothes. Not so much a label snob, but an article snob. He wears dress shirts and ties most days, because that is how he is most comfortable, even in the summer. His weekend attire consists of khakis and a polo shirt. He doesn't wear ripped jeans or graphic t's and he wouldn't even think of leaving the house in a white under t, unless it was under something.

I bought him a navy tie with snowmen on it a few years back and he was shocked. It wasn't tacky, the snowmen were in good taste and were pretty small. Since it was a navy tie it wasn't screaming Christmas or anything. I though it was so cute and nice. I think he was shocked that I actually thought he would wear it. He didn't.

This tie was given to him as a gag gift years ago, and has always just hung in the closet. When he stepped out of the closet Thursday morning carrying it I almost fell over. As a matter of fact, I think I am still in shock!

I guess he was pretty excited for July 4th.

Wow - does he not think it's tacky? It's definitely loud and he was probably noticed. Maybe the snowmen were too subtle!
