My dad, who worked as “Personnel Director” a position now called head of HR, at Fuller-O’Brien, in the early 70′s, was commissioned for one of their ads. Note groovy tie.

    That tie is so spectacular I can’t breathe. And this is such a 1970′s looking print ad. Were all your father’s ties this evocative of the time or was this that special occasion tie he always wore for the special moments?

    My mom is to blame/ takes credit for my dad’s way-out fashion choices. She would shop in the gay neighborhoods in SF in the 60′s and 70′s to find him the most fashionable accessories – the majority of his ties were similar to this, a far cry from the traditional Preppie style he wore when my parents met.
