Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Mississippi Valley State


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 accessory in college hoops, if not the entire sporting world, and document every tie Roy Williams wears this season.

More colors for Roy this season. More flowers too. At least I guess those are some sort of flower motif.

 

 

 

To go with the yellow, he trotted out a grey pinstriped suit which I don’t remember having seen before. Check me on that.

 

 

 

Also in case you’re wondering, pretty sure that lapel pin is in remembrance of Eve Carson.

 

Here are this year’s stats:

Media Day – Pink tie with blue flowers and green dots, white shirt and pinstriped suit.

Late Night with Roy – Carolina blue tie with red and white diagonal stripes, pink shirt and white pocket square.

Exhibition, UNC-Pembroke, W 100-58 – Purple and teal square pattern tie with lavender shirt and patterned coat.

Michigan State, W 67-55 – No tie, blue polo, khaki pullover and combat boots with UNC-Carrier Classic logo.

UNC-Asheville, W 91-75 – Orange tie with yellow pattern, blue shirt and blue pocket square.

Mississippi Valley State, W 101-75 – Yellow tie with orange, purple, blue and green pattern, white pocket square, grey pinstriped suit and Eve Carson lapel pin.
