My husband has a huge collection of neck ties. I have to admit, I get a little jealous of him for being able to accessorize and jazz up his outfit in this way. His neck ties range from beautiful vintage designer neck ties, to wacky themed neck ties, to ones that make a statement. He has been collecting them his entire adult life, and almost all of them come with a story. A great find at a thrift store, a neck tie that was passed down from his grandfather, the various neck ties I have given him for birthday and anniversary presents. I would say that in his collection of neckties, he has a little over eighty five. And whenever I need to find a great gift for him, I know that there are endless neck ties available on the web and they will probably never run out of ideas! At the rate he’s going, he’ll probably be able to open a neck tie museum someday.
Once my husband’s neck tie collection started getting too big for the average neck tie rack, I had to start looking for a more efficient way of organizing them. Not only because the tie rack was running out of space, but because it started getting too hard for him to find the one he wanted. And different occasions call for different neck ties.
So for his birthday, a couple of years ago, I got him this really cool Tie-O-Matic motorized tie rack. It can hold sixty four neck ties, which at the time was about all he had so it was enough. He has since added a second tie spinning rack to the closet rod to accommodate his ever growing collection. He was a fan of it right from the start, because it went up so easily and made a huge improvement in his morning routine. Selecting a neck tie has never been so easy for him; all he has to do is push a button and they spin around until he sees the one he wants. I never knew there could be a better gift for him than a neck tie – a motorized spinning tie rack was!
