Tie Up Your Search for Guys Gifts

I have to thank my friend Hans Gehrke from Chicago for his idea for this post.  He told me about this great site and product.  I just HAD to share.  These collegiate ties from Vineyard Vines www.vineyardvines.com  are just the right gift for the new student, the devoted alum or the sports fan.. Look no further!  These ties will make a huge statement as your favorite guy steps out.  What a win for you, the shopper, and for the lucky guy on your gift list!

Consider the college themed wedding too.  Wouldn’t it be great for the groomsmen to wear these and/or give them as a groomsmen’s gift?  The possibilities endless.
