Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Lipscomb
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.
A new season, a new tie. For the Heels’ first official game, Roy paired one of his favorite pinstriped suits with a tie the Tracker has yet to see.
The tie itself was a beige based with a diamond pattern in what appeared to be in a nice light blue, accented with brown in the middle of the diamonds. All-around nice look.
Look at that beautiful tie action.
Also if you noticed, Roy at some point in the game lost his pocketsquare. Weird.
Here’s this years stats:
Exhibition: Barton, W 108-67 – Plain Carolina blue tie with white pocket square, white shirt and pinstriped suit, no Tar Heel lapel pin
Game 1: Lipscomb, W 80-66 – Beige tie with light blue diamonds and brown accents with white pocket square (for part of game), white shirt and pinstriped suit, no lapel pin
