The most confusing tie clip in the world.

Years ago we inherited this tie clip and none of us have every been able to figure out what’s going on with it.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.20.04 PM

At first I thought it was a bowler who dropped his bowling ball because who hasn’t done that, but Victor said that’s not something you would memorialize in a tie clip, so then I thought maybe it was a fancy grampa running for a goal with an invisible football.  Then I thought maybe this was a “Sorry. I’m introverting today” tie clip because that’s sort of how I look all the time and it would be nice to have a piece of jewelry that just lets people know that it’s me and not them, but Victor took a close look and decided that this is “NO TIME FOR YOUR BULLSHIT” guy.

And for once, he might be right because it fits:

112

11 10 9 8 7 6 5

14
3 2

Long story short? This is now my favorite piece of jewelry.

  1. I agree, at first, I thought he was a ten-pin bowler, but then his get up made me think he was a cricket player. I like Victor’s idea though. There are so many possibilities with this and you’ve thought of most of them 😃👍🌟

  91. He’s doing the Charleston, a 1920s dance that was a huge craze – absolutely one of the biggest in history (this is what happens when you ban alcohol) – and which spawned competitions for who could do it longest/highest/quickest/best/you name it. The pin may well have been a runner-up prize in one of these contests – they were often big money competitions with very large payouts – or may have belonged to a dance band member as part of the uniform.

I’m epic-ly bad at bowling – to the point that, on more than one occasion (since I have bowled exactly twice and it happened both times), I have accidentally sent the ball flying back BEHIND me. I’m kind of proud of how bad I am. I mean, if you’re going to do it, do it right. And I do bad bowling RIGHT. So yes, I would happily make a tie clip to memorialize my bumbling backward ball bowling (say that 5 times fast). Tell Victor he’s just going to have to deal with it.😉

  182. Great. I now have the phrase “toodleoo douchecanoe” stuck in my head, which wouldn’t be a problem except that I’m in retail and will have way too many times that I want to use it. I also really want a pin, shirt, or coffee mug with this guy on it.

  185. The last one is my favorite!
    But also, I named my breast cancer Felicia so that all my friends and family could inundate me with Bye Felicia memes and swag (and ask about Felicia instead of my CANCER). So I love that one too🙂

  194. I actually agree with the one person who said Joe Paterno. He’s running out on the field with his team. He always wore high water pants because his wife yelled at him early in his coaching career that his pants were muddy after the game….hence, high waters. Also- although his glasses are historic in sports circles, I believe he either had eye surgery or started wearing contacts for a while, but Penn State fans thought he didn’t look like him without his iconic glasses. Thus, he got some others to wear.

    I think he’s dancing the Charleston and this tie clip was meant to restrain the tie of someone really into cutting a rug…

  202. Um, hi, I just published a blog post called “Fuck you Jenny Lawson,” and I really stand by the title. It is a very high compliment to you, but for the sake of good karma I had to reach out and clarify in case you have a google alert for “fuck you jenny lawson” as I do for my name. It is a very positive post.

  203. I was intrigued by this tie bar and decided to see if I could find out anything about it. As it turns out, this was a product of the Hickok Manufacturing Company of Rochester, NY (1912-1971). In addition to tie bars, they also made men’s belts, cufflinks, and other assorted accessories. The company was handed down through the family until it was acquired by the Tandy Corporation in 1971. Raymond Hickok was the last person to head the company and is notable for having developed prototypes of what would become seatbelts for cars as well as an athletic trophy belt called the S. Rae Hickok belt in honor of his father that was awarded yearly from 1950 through 1976. He passed in 1992 (NY Times article: http://goo.gl/Nt93e5).

    If you search around on eBay, Etsy and a few similar sites you can find several of these for sale. Here’s one I found on “Bonanza” for $45 which calls it the “Stop In The Name Of Love” tie clip: http://www.bonanza.com/items/like/212853931/hickok-tie-clip. In the third picture you can clearly see the words HICKOK USA stamped on the back of the tie bar. Google Book Search has a couple of ads for the company from LIFE magazine (http://goo.gl/cSd9lW) and (http://goo.gl/GfAeAO), but I’ve been unable to positively identify what the company actually called this product. Still, it made for some fascinating reading and I hope you don’t mind me sharing it with you.
