Tying one on for Easter

March 28, 2012 | By Brent Almond | THINGS DAD DIGS

I was going to make this post a DooDad of the Day, but I love everything this company makes so thought it deserved a little bigger shout out.

There was a time I wore ties with relative frequency. Like when I worked in an office and regularly met with clients. But with a home-based studio and the interwebs, there’s just not as much call for Man’s Best Accessory. Even Papa — a fancypants DC attorney — only ties one on for big meetings anymore. So when we wear ties, they really gotta pop.

Yes, Trendy Ties specializes in adorable/handsome/trendy ties for little kids (girls can wear ties, too y’all) but they also make ties for Daddies* and Papas. So… until JJ is old enough to protest (which is kind of already here) I’m starting an Easter/Father’s Day tradition of buying us a set of matching ties. Gag on the cutesiness all you want, I don’t care.

The ties (and bow ties!) come in gorgeous patterns that are colorful enough not to be stuffy, but thankfully not a dinosaur or Spongebob among them. This is some seriously delicious stuff. Take a gander at some of my favorites, poke around their site, and please give them your business. NOTE: these are all hand-made, so if you want ties in time for Easter, you gotta order soon!

I’ve already made our Easter purchase — bonus points to whoever guesses which one!

*Daddy is a big guy, and thankfully TT makes their adult ties in regular and extra-long!
