Here's a post I made earlier this year on another thread back in May about the "Partners" statue and Walt's Smoke Tree Ranch necktie:
A Smoke Tree Ranch necktie is the ultimate Disney collectible, IMHO. And it's not even something that's owned by The Walt Disney Company!Originally Posted by Opus1guy
Here's the Smoke Tree Ranch necktie that I wore to Candlelight and Club 33 this year (which just happened to be handy):
I should also mention that Lillian Disney apparently hated Walt's collection of Smoke Tree neckties (or hated the fact that Walt almost always wore them). And when this "Partners" statue was first shown to her, she reportedly said to sculptor Blaine Gibson something like, "Oh Lord. Did you have to do him with one of those damn neckties on?"
Which of course, just adds to the legend and allure of them. IMHO.
