It’s Hard To Find The Tabasco In All The Chaos!

Tie 1In what’s become something of a frightening Monday tradition, Modern Philosophers, I wore another of my Tabasco ties to work today.

Since I had the audacity to go out in public in this fashion nightmare, the only fair thing to do is to share it with you here on the blog.

You’re welcome!

As you can see, today’s tie is much more subtle than the others I’ve shared to this point.

Oh, it’s loud and weird and an eyesore, but when I call is subtle, I mean it does an excellent job of hiding its Tabasco message.

Usually, there are Tabasco bottles everywhere and it’s impossible to miss that it’s a Tabasco tie, but this one would’ve made you look twice.

If your eyes could’ve handled the punishment.

This one has a Vegas/gambling theme, so you’d probably expect giant Tabasco bottle casinos, slot machines with Tabasco bottles as the big jackpot, or Tabasco bottles dealing blackjack, but you don’t get that on this tie.

I wonder why they showed such restraint.  Any thoughts on that, Modern Philosophers?

Tie 2Here’s a second look at the tie.  This angle shows a little more of the Tabasco theme.

The word “Tabasco” is there in neon red letters just northwest of the red neon “hot”.

Those are Tabasco bottle caps all over the tie, and the Tabasco logo is on some of the dice (but it’s difficult to see that from the photos).

There is a lot going on with this tie, and my eyes never quite know where to focus.  Something about it makes it one of my favorites, though.

What do you think, Modern Philosophers?  Do you like this week’s tie?  Do you prefer its subtlety to the other other ties where the Tabasco theme just hit you over the head?  Would you be caught out in public in this tie?

My Supervisor did come up to me today and ask me why I was all dressed up.  I guess even a Tabasco tie looks all fancy on a guy who usually wear a toga to work.

Happy Monday.  If you need any fashion tips, just shoot me an email!

    tell him you are going on a hot interview –

  2. I like this tie because Vegas is one of my favorite vacation places and it reminds me that I need to head back out there soon. I especially need to escape this frigid weather that we are having here in WI. It almost made it to 40 today! I spent an hour outside with just a lightweight jacket and of course my face is still bright red from the exposure to the icy breeze. Maybe I should have worn a tabasco tie. Think that would have warmed me up? 😉

    40’s ??? is that 40 as in what we are having here over next 3 days ( 100+f) or is it more like a balmy fall day ?? Love the tie much more subtle than last weeks. does it look good on the kitties. they might bring a bit of panache to it

    if you wear this tie with a houndstooth style jacket and pork pie hat . you would fit right into atlantic city or vegas casino crowds.

    and if you wore the jacket with that tie and fitted in the casino crowd. it would make you look a bit like danny de vito in twins.
