Specifically designed for Old Boys ?

Let's read here what transpired earlier. Keeping our bond alive is note-worthy. There are Michaelians who still have the passion to keep the spirit alive by wearing Michaelian necktie at their places of work at least once a week.There's one, Thomas, who wears a green tie everyday. Such outstanding and endearing old boy. We must continue to strengthen the link and keep the ethos alive.

One old boy who runs a wonderful blog writes....My Michaelians friends and I had a discussion among us...
We would like to wear SMI neck tie...probably on one specific day..perhaps on Wednesday...
but where can we buy the neck tie? And is there any neck tie which specifically designed for the old boys? ...the school tie only suits for the students but not for the old boys...

Perhaps fellow Michaelians would like to respond to this...

Below are some comments from Michaelians, some of whom are currently overseas.

Let's not say specifically designed for old boys, but for everybody to use. I'm not working a blue collar job just yet, but I would love a green coloured tie that represents where I come from. Or even if one is a CEO of a grand company like TV3 that is part of Media Prima, the CEO who is a Michaelian (I think) would love to wear such a tie. Love the idea. If this idea flies, have a poll, post the designs, and all Old Boys should jump in and design one for the fun of it. Designers will be able to put this in his/her portfolio - Andrew Lim.

A good idea but it would be tricky to incorporate a design which does not look too student-ish and at the same time, preserve that distinct Michaelian flair.A competition might be a good place to start. I know for a fact that many Michaelians have artistic abilities and they may be keen on displaying their talents. Just a random thought - Young

For your info, the Andersonians had just started the idea of wearing neck tie on Wednesday in conjunction with their centennial celebration recently...the Cliffordians are also wearing tie on one specific day..and the MCKK old boys wearing neck tie every Wednesday...and I believe Michaelians should also do the same..the old boys neck tie should not be the same design with the students...coz I'm not sure with the current situation but during my time the neck tie is too short...not suitable for a working man...we can choose Wednesday as the day for wearing the neck tie...coz Wednesday is a cabinet meeting for the government...Politicians from SMI can proudly wear the tie in cabinet meeting and also in the parliament...just imagine on Wednesday, Michaelians all over the world wear the SMI neck tie to show that they are Michaelians..the old boys can buy the neck tie and percentage from the proceeds of the sale could be used by the school...it's a donation or charity from the old boys..we give back to the school..

Good idea to have a specific tie to represent one self as an old Michaelian. The tie should be preferably be green which represents the Michaelian colour. Maybe someone artistic can come up with a design. Some one I can see now is Master Timothy Chee. Other than a tie, a collar pin and tie-pin would also be a good idea -Harneak Singh

the Cliffordians also wearing tie in one specific day..and the MCKK old boys wearing neck tie every Wednesday...and I believe Michaelians should also do the same..

the old boys neck tie should not be the same design with the students...coz i'm not sure with the current situation but during my time the neck tie is too short...not suitable for a working man...

we can choose wednesday as the day for wearing the neck tie...coz wednesday is a cabinet meeting for the government...

politicians from SMI can proudly wear the tie in cabinet meeting and also in the parliament...

just imagine on wednesday Michaelians all over the world wear the SMI neck tie to show that they are Michaelians..

the old boys can buy the neck tie and percentage from the proceeds of the sale could be used by the school...it's a donation or charity from the old boys..we give back to the school..
