Personally, I don’t wear ties very often. I only wear them for weddings or funerals. Odd that these two events are at opposite ends of the social spectrum, but they have the exact same dress code. Hmmm.
I own two ties. I actually only ever wear one of them because the other is very ugly. I should give the ugly one away, but I can’t. I’m not sure why. It could be many reasons, but I think it could be because I need the illusion of choice. Obviously I’ll never really wear the ugly tie, but as long as it is in the closet I could. Especially if I ever wear the really ugly shirt that also lives in the closet.
