Style Share: December 2013

It's been awhile since I've done a Style Share, I admit. With the holidays right around the corner, I figure there isn't a better time to fire one up. If you haven't heard of this thing before, the gist is that I give away items of clothing and the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said free* item email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site (I'll give you credit for the photo and even link your blog if you have one).

This month, I've got five different ties from five different makers, all in fairly distinct styles (some of them more suitable for winter than others). I'm sending out the first three items claimed, so let's do this!

Bass black watch plaid

Vintage Bass tie in a nice black watch plaid. 100% cotton and great for holiday parties or anything else.

Brooks Brothers burgundy

Brooks Brothers burgundy / orange / blue striped tie. Winter with a wink towards spring.

vintage Jos A Bank regimental

Vintage Jos A. Bank regimental. JAB gets a back knock, but their vintage ties hold up against the venerable Brooks Brothers any day.

Lands End Charter collection

Lands' End Charter Collection in wool and silk. Really, really lovely and I'm close to keeping this one.

Liberty of London Repp

Liberty of London repp stripe with a slightly unique color combination.

As usual, claim your item in the comments, then email me through the address listed on the site. It's pretty darn easy and I'll get back to you fairly quickly.

Perhaps it goes without saying, but if you see something you like that doesn't get claimed and you want to trade/purchase it, just email me. I've actually traded for a few items in the past and frankly it's nearly just as fun for me.

*Seriously, it's free, and yours to keep forever. No strings attached. I won't share your name on the site or with anyone else unless you have a blog of your own that you want me to link. Please note that all clothing will be used (but certainly not stained, smelly, or damaged, as I do have standards), so please only agree to participate if this sort of thing doesn't gross you out. Thanks!


  1. I had the exact same tie as that Banks Argyll & Sutherland Highlander. I got it turned into matching father-son bowties. It's the only tie my son will wear now.

    Anyway, all nice tie, but none of them tickle my fancy. Good luck to everyone else!

  2. If no one else has claimed it, I'd love to have that Black Watch tie, please.

    Best Regards,

    Heinz-Ulrich von B.

  3. First, I would like to say welcome back since I enjoy reading your blog. Second, I would love to claim the Liberty rep tie, if it is still available.


  4. The Bass tie is awesome for the holiday season. Would love to add to my collection.

  5. HUvB and Shawn, hit me up with an email and I'll get your ties out to you.

    Ryan, unfortunately HUvB got in his request just before you on the Bass tie. If you see any others that tickle your fancy, let me know, otherwise I should be back with another installment in a month or so.
