Description

He is a tentative model, but I think he looks pretty good regardless. I altered the pattern to create more of a classic skinny tie. He gave me the seal of approval, so I plan to never buy an over-priced department store necktie again. Huzzah!

    This is an great idea!!!!!!!! I would have loved to see the grey one on you… hope that the red lining won’t be seen at the other side. I would cut the lining a bit smaler than the tie.

    I think I will borrow this idea hahahaha

    So long Basti
