Roy Williams Tie Tracker, Exhibition Edition: Barton


One thing all UNC fans have come to know, love and expect of Roy Williams is his fashionable selection of ties, most often courtesy of Chapel Hill outfitter Alexander Julian. The same man who put the argyle on the side of the basketball uniform is still turning heads with what he’s putting around Ol’ Roy’s neck. So, here at The Rafters we decided to pay homage to the best accesory in college hoops, if not the entire sporting world, and document every tie Roy Williams wears this season.

What a great way to start the day, right? Roy back on the sidelines looking fresh. The Boys handling their business, like they should. The weather’s turning cold. It’s basketball season.

Roy kept it simple for the visiting Bulldogs with a solid, Carolina blue tie. Paired with the pinstriped suit, white shirt and pocketsquare it was a very crisp look. This seems to be the same get-up from last year’s Wake Forest game.

As a bonus, some shots of Roy from Media Day and Late Night with Roy.

Roy doing his best Mr. Monopoly with the sequined fedora and cane at Late Night. This is the same combo we saw against Georgia Tech in the ACC tournament, Dook at home, Virginia Tech at home and Ohio State.

Oh la la, a closeup of a tie we didn’t get a great  look at last season against Virginia. This is Roy at Media Day.

Here’s this years stats:
