I’ve hit that critical-mass 10-tie threshhold, thanks to a sale at Strauss. I bought three more ties (the red one, the shiny taupey one, and the periwinkle one in honor of ex-coworker Jan) plus a nice navy blue shirt (oddly I didn’t have one already). Here’s the kicker: it’s an XL (only one ‘X’ there!). And a European XL at that!
If you need casual wear, ties, or shirts, I recommend hitting Strauss ASAP. I got two ties for €7,95 each (marked down from €15,90 each) and a tie-friendly work shirt (I hesitate to call it a dress shirt, but it’s really as close as I come) for a hair over €10 marked down from €29,90.
I would have gotten some sweet khaki cargo pants for about €7, but they didn’t have any in my size.
