I will do this regardless if I have a gf or not to impress everyone.
Be sure to hire an escort that works a different part of the city; otherwise like half the partners at the event will recognize her.
LOL. Funny because it's true.
BTW, until I finished reading OP's post, I thought he was asking about neckties and wondered why there weren't pictures. Clearly I just finished with finals.

they are. bid nyc. i have friends who regret not doing that. and I don't mean "as a backup." Just bid nyc.
edit: these are litearlly the only ties that matter:
--you spent your childhood in a 30 mile radius of the city
--you went to middle school and high school there
--you went to college there OR you went to college somewhere else and returned to work for a couple years
--your parents family and friends are all there
--you root for those sports teams and have all your life
--you may not go to law school there, but you went to the best school you could and you intend to go back.
unless that describes your ties to SF/LA/Chi/DC, do not bother outside of whatever the elite grade cutoff would be at your school. basically there is a certain gpa from certain schools where you won't need ties for these markets. outside that gpa, ties will be key and only a combination of most or all of the above wil work.
