    Default Look at these beautiful stock ties.

    So what do you think of these stock ties?
    I love the Barbara.

    And what's the point of all the decoration at the ends when that goes under your coat anyway & never gets seen?

    Way to foofy for me. But then again, I haven't shown in years, maybe this is in now? I'd feel like I was going to a tea party a la Hyacinth Bucket.

    Default gorgeous

    They are gorgeous, but to me they are for the upper levels, or maybe the bigger shows/circuits, and on a horse/rider combination that consistently performs above average. I wouldn't wear this if I thought we were going to stink up the place. At my level of riding I opt for a sportier look.

    I agree. Only draw attention to yourself if you can live up to that increased scrutiny! Also, all my stock ties get "ring around the collar" from sweat and dirt. Cleaning these look like a nightmare.

    Wait, is this the same group that always says, "judges don't care what you wear"?

    They're not my style, but I think they look cute, and it's a classy way to stand out.

    Care of Stock Ties:
    Handwash or machine wash on gently cycle using a lingerie bag, line dry. If you are at a show, wash tie in sink, roll in a towel to remove excess water, hang to dry-straighten lace. You should not need to iron.
    Fabric is 100% polyester-a light weight bridal fabric.


    You shouldn't use chlorine bleach on poly but other than that they are probably easier to care for than the traditional cotton stocks that needed to be ironed.

    However, nope, not for me, especially at the price since I do know how to sew

    For some people, they may work. They're just too foofy for me. But then, I loathe lace.

    I made this one for myself, wanted a splash of colour and couldn't find one that I liked..

    I think it turned out well considering I'm not good at sewing. I ended up modifying it a bit so it was less flat through the red, more gathered and ruched.

    The judges don't care. That doesn't mean I have to like it. I think they're dopey looking. But the judges don't care, so if you like it, wear it.

    Some of them are to poofy but I love the Barbara. Has just enough pearls & can still see the fabric on them, not lace. Now with some plain pearl earrings, very formal looking.
    I also love the one that you made Sabovee. Pretty.

    they remind me of my stern ex marine grandmother, and how she'd force us to sit properly, and use the correct fork, and set the table like the freakin' pope was coming, or face her wrath!

    Meh. I've seen prettier and prettier parts that actually show off around your neck.

    Nothing I'd want to buy.

    Um, I always think of lace underwear as something you only wear to show your man. Otherwise it's too freaking uncomfortable to wear when you're the only one who knows it!

    I like the pre tied ones, but don't like lace. I agree about the bottom lace being silly. The stock is almost the last thing on and the second thing off, after the jacket.

    I don't like tying ties.

    I think these are custom made. I'd have it without the bottom lace also but still have to say...I like them. All are also pre-tied thank goodness. Haven't tied a stock in 100 years or more.

    I love tying ties! It really is so easy plus the ties themselves are so easy to take care of.
