This weekend marked the occurrence of an event many people had waited for years to experience. Seven years, to be exact. While I was thinking of a great way to show off the many unique tie racks that are available, this event occurred.
What is this huge event? Is it Memorial Day? It cannot be Memorial Day – that occurs every single year. No folks this is a whole different animal. It has nothing to do with honoring our deceased service members for the courageous work they have done in securing our freedom.
In fact, this is a much less important landmark event. It was the unveiling of the brand new season of Arrested Development, a show that was tragically cancelled a little less than a decade ago. The fourth season features an interesting plot that twists and turns before reaching its conclusion.
However, this is no pop-culture blog or television program reviewing blog. No I am much more concerned with blogging about funny ties or unique tie racks than I am laying down the hammer of judgment on a show (which I loved).
One thing I noticed while watching Arrested Development in its original three seasons is the way that the main character Michael Bluth, wears his ties. I’m not sure if it was just the style of the early aughts, but he wears his tie so long that it goes down below his belt-line.
So this always stuck with me while I watched the original seasons, and even had a bit of an influence on my tie-wearing habits for the years between 2006-2013. I would buy extra long ties so I would achieve that stunning Michael Bluth-look. To accommodate my extra long ties, I would have to find a unique tie rack that could hold them.
Perhaps unique tie racks are no longer necessary?
But in this most recent season of Arrested Development, I could not help but notice the change in Michael’s tie-wearing habits. Instead of having his tie reach all the way past his tucked-in shirt, it simply stopped a few buttons up from his waist.
What had I been doing all those years?
Obviously the long-tie fad had dissipated and now regular-length ties were the rage. I knew immediately it was time to say good bye to my yard-length ties and unique tie racks. The time was high for me to get a collection of standard length ties for my new and improved wardrobe.
Instead of unique tie racks for my regular old ties, I used a simple tie rack such as the Wall Mounted 30 Tie Organizer.
