Here’s a very wide silk tie made by Jordan Marsh Company.
I still have a few more of my grandfather’s ties to post. Most of what is left is in my brother’s possession, or are ties that I wear regularly (as regularly as I wear ties, that is).
Posting these last few ties is bittersweet.
I know I should keep up with regular posting, but I’m not. I think my procrastination is a result of not really wanting to finish this blog.
Andrew and I were recently speaking about our last few posts, and we came to the conclusion that there were going to be stories that came to mind that we wish we could have posted, and because there are no more ties to pair to the stories, these stories are going to go un-shared.
I think that’s okay.
The original concept for this blog was focused on the ties. Old ties. Ugly ties. Our granfathers’ ties.
I think for both of us, the idea quickly turned into a vehicle for getting to know our grandfathers better through consistent writing. To that end, I think that we both succeeded.
So, to end this post, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Gampa-sayings:
“There’s going to be a Revolution!!”
