National Tie Month:
All LIM College students, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate National Tie Month with the Adrian G. Marcuse Library.
While neckties have been around since the 17th century, the recognition of National Tie Month is a relatively recent development, due to the increase of ties purchased in December.
The Adrian G. Marcuse Library is celebrating National Tie Month with a dedicated display of several of its necktie and menswear titles. The Library offers numerous periodicals, DVDs and fashion forecasting services focusing on menswear. Interim Dean of Academic Affairs and Fashion Merchandising Department Chair Michael Londrigan’s book Menswear: Business to Style is also being featured now.
Visit the Library today and learn all about the menswear industry!
