The owner of Cliff Ties, a new company looking to sell hand-screened graphic neckties, contacted me about doing a quick shoot of some of his ties on real people as they might actually look while wearing them; “I’m in”, I said. He showed up with a box of the cool, hand-crafted ties and we headed down to the wharehouse district in Minneapolis. We had a good time, got some good photographs, and didn’t do the “stand in front of a brick wall and try to look like a rebel” toooo much.
Cliff Ties is having their launch party (complete with a band and discounts on ties (and free drinks for anyone named Joe Federer??) ) on Sept 10, 7pm at Stella’s Fish Cafe in Minneapolis. I believe their website may have just started accepting orders for those of you looking to be among the first to own one.
Here are some of my favorite images from that (even if these aren’t the ones that best show the ties — it’s my blog, I’ll post what I want! 😉 ) …
The astute observers among you might notice that Colleen and I (me wearing a funny “hot chicks” tie) got into the action as well. Yep, we’re famous..
