Max's collection of ties comes from virtually everywhere: (kids) the Children's Miracle Network, Save the Children; (fashion) Vernini at St Laurent, Holt Renfrew; and some others are gifts from viewers. The Sens ties are from sensations, Montreal Airport gift shop, and a Toronto tie company which made some early in the life of the franchise (purchased by McGarry Funeral Home people).

The Ottawa Sun did a mini-profile of the ties last summer.

Now go tie one on!
