Les Cravates Du Mal
Just have to share.
Warren was the founder and curator of the "Ugly Tie Museum,"
-- Les Cravates Du Mal --
He was a voracious collector of ugly ties. I had gone with him several times as we prowled the vintage boutiques and thrift stores of Lambertville, NJ, Levittown, PA, and Brooklyn, NY.
I started my own collection of ugly ties, but my secret is I find them quite beautiful. I "would wear them," but I never have.
He was a connoisseur of ugly ties, and collected along the lines of several provenances.
I'm not saying he was a snob about it; we ARE talking "UGLY TIES" here.
I always thought: Provenance be damned, it is only a matter of "liking," and a thing of extraordinary worth and beauty can come from anywhere.
