Rooster ties bring back memories

I remember acquring my first Rooster tie about seven years ago at a Salvation Army store in Bristol, Conn. I liked the brim of the tie being thin and that it had a good weight to it.

Fast forward to Saturday ... I went into Syms initially looking for Allen-Edmonds shoes but stopped by the ties first. I couldn't believe there were a selection of Rooster ties. These were the current versions featuring timeless stripes, polka dots and animal designs in various colors. I could have collected them all, but settled for two.

The nice thing about Rooster ties is that they are very well made. They are inexpensive. I found mine at $14.99 each. If you don't want to spend a heckuva whole lot of money on ties, Roosters are a worthwhile investment.
