I’ve been all about bow ties for the past year (and that love will not falter), but after seeing the cover of The Boilermaker Jazz Band’s newest CD – Nice Work If You Can Get It, I was reminded of the fun of regular ol’ ties.
You may not be able to play the clarinet like Paul, but you can get in on the snazzy tie action. Here are a couple auctions:
eBay is THE place to find lots of ties at reasonable prices. Many printed vintage bow ties are made of rayon (synthetic silk), so they’re not often of the highest quality, so keep that in mind. With a bit of luck and vigilant searching, you can find some awesome deco ties made out of silk.
By the way, do check out the Boilermaker Jazz Band’s newest CD (linked above). 19 rock solid tracks of extremely danceable tunes (They recorded Pure Imagination!)
Happy hunting and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
