Okay, at the risk of sounding really odd, here it goes:

I love coin magic—anyone ever see a tie made up of images of coins? If no one has, I was thinking of designing one. Yes, I am one of those guys who wears nice suits and throws in the odd looking theme tie (Looney Tunes, Disney, music notes, anything different...).

It would be primarily a dark colored tie covered with images of Morgan Dollars, Barber halves, Walking Liberties, etc. (all the coins that I think look classic).

Anyone else like this idea? Smile

Very tough to pull off with class. It is more sensible to have a coin as the head on a tie tac.

If you are VERY good at design, you might want to have a coin design on your pocket square and go from that.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Try looking at Ralph Marlin's ties...he may have something like you're thinking of.
Cheers,

Ted,

I've been wanting to go with the traditional tuxedo look but a tux purchase has been out of the budget so far.

Instead, I've been wearing just a nice pair of slacks and a dress shirt. I do the same things with ties, though! I wear a Scooby or a Sponge Bob - I think the kids really like that.

I am trying to think up a way to have a tie sewn inside another so I can do a quick tie change just to fool people. Anyone have any ideas on doing that?

http://www.williamsmagic.com has a selection of magicial ties. I used to always go in there and see the owner with a card tie on. You may have to email them to ask about them...I am not sure if they are listed in their inventory on the site.
