Ascending Butterfly's Father's Day Buying Guide Pick Sponsored By:


Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to
Silk suit, black tie
I don't need a reason why
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
Sound familiar? These are the 'Sharp Dressed Man' song lyrics from the band ZZ Top! (Songwriters: Gibbons, William; Hill, Joe Michael; Beard, Frank)

These words still ring true, women really are crazy about a sharp dressed man! We do notice the details, run down heels on shoes, no cufflinks, no tie, we notice! Just like we invest a great deal of time, money and effort on our look (not to mention the extra time to make it all look 'effortless'), we certainly expect the same effort from the men in our lives!

Those touches that show he genuinely cares about putting his best foot forward. That he wants to look good for himself and for you.

While women are notoriously accused of dressing nice for other women, men do the exact same thing with their ties. Men do notice other Men's ties and many engage in a healthy and fun rivalry of 'tie one-up-manship'.

Ties are also where many men express their individuality,  and various facets of their personalities are often expressed in their choice of tie. A man should have ties for various 'occasions' as well as various 'moods'. And he should also have choices in terms of price, variety and style, he should be able to shop online just as easily as visiting a brick and mortar.

Thankfully, now he does! Since 2000, ABCNeckties has been offering men's novelty and fashion ties, and since they offer a Money Back Guarantee, Fast Shipping, Easy Returns and 100% Secure Online Ordering, it's totally a no-brainer!



I received the 'Phillips Fashion Silk Tie' in the 'silver' color for review. What's not to love about a handmade, fashion forward silk tie that arrives at your door in lightening speed? My experience with ABCNeckties was a very positive one, and I definitely recommend using them to keep your sharp dressed man en vogue!

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a community group page with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow A Blog Publicly Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
