In Which I Am Fit To Be Tied

The Task:

Well, Gentle Reader, according to The List, I was to wear a tie or bow tie every day for a month. I chose February – not because of its shortness, but because I didn’t want to commit to bringing ties with me to Europe unless I really wanted to. I’m also trying hard to only own the items I can carry on my back, so that limited my wardrobe choices. You’ll likely see outfits repeated multiple times. Also, selfies really aren’t my thing. Nonetheless, as promised, I wore a tie or bow-tie every day this month*. Behold:

Right, so I’m actually pretty pleased with the ties and so on. The reason I grew so quickly tired of this project is because I’m growing my hair out, and it’s at an awful stage; taking a selfie everyday just reinforced how much I hate what it looks like right now. Other than that? Aces.

The other thing I noticed, particularly in the first half of the month, was how quickly I was bored with the plain black tie – I had designated that my “travel” tie so that I wouldn’t be packing a million of the damn things, because that’s not minimalist at all. However, by the end of the month, I was sort of missing it, so there’s that. I’ll probably pack that tie, and wear it reasonably often.


*It’s also likely, if you ran in to me this month, that you didn’t see me wearing a tie, because the days I saw people were, of course, days where it got uncomfortable and I took it off. Because of course that’s how things work. Oi.

About Ty DeLyte

Madame DeLyte has suffered a grave disappointment - YET AGAIN - and still believes that freedom, beauty, and truth are what's valuable, rather than vulgar cash. He'd add love to that list - but, well, what can he say about love?

    Aw, gah, eugh, nope to the one I made you? *sniffle* :p I think you looked dashing in all of them.

    • Not because you made it, darling! Because my hair and face weren’t fit to be seen that day. My favorite pic is where I’m wearing the one you made me with the purple shirt and disney-villain sweater. 😀 And thank you.

  2. I can definitely see how you got bored with the black tie. I got tired of the black tie within the first 10 pictures. It would have been awesome to see different variations to give us a taste of your inner fashion.

    • Thanks. I actually have quite a collection of ties – and clothes in general, come to that – but I’m in the process of moving/putting my entire life into storage. Minimalism isn’t for the faint of heart. Or those who are really addicted to sartorial splendor.

  3. That hat really does suit you nicely. The people of the internet are surely happy to have twenty eight more pictures of your handsome self.

Have something to say, darling? Don't be shy!
