Roy Williams Tie Tracker: Virginia Tech


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.

You know the drill: Large paisley print. Carolina blue and navy blue. He’s wearing a pocket square.

Looked nice. Also looked a lot like the one he wore against Syracuse at the beginning of the year. If that’s true, it hasn’t faired well against teams with orange in their color way. One last look.
