Jerry Tie...

Postby feelikeastranger » Sun May 27, 2012 7:39 am

Seen a guy from the Kennedy Space Center wearing a Jerry Tie the other day on the news, i love seein shit like that, especially with someone with a job like that.I know Bill Clinton used to wear them alot as well and give them as gifts. Ive been seeing alot more of them in stores the past year, along with the button downs , and i guess you call it a dress shirt something like a polo. Does anyone know if Jerry made every design , i know he did with the ties but not sure about the shirts.

As far as I know, the ties were not designed by Jerry. The ties were designed using little pieces of Jerry's artwork, lets say cut and pasted into a tie. Jerry was not involved, he just said OK sound like a good idea. Of course now DK is trying to milk it till the cows come home.

Bought one for $10 at Marshalls recently.

Just snipits of Jerry's artwork, reworked into ties.

I've got a few that I wear when I have to suit up for work. Keeps me from feeling too straight at a business meeting.

This reminds me of one of Moe's immortal lines, per neckties...(to Curly, natch)..."Why, if I had a necktie, I'd hang ya with it!" :D
