What Are They Doing?

This picture has tickled my fancy.

What's the story here? Can you please write a short paragraph about what this sign would say?

 I want to use it as an invitation, but I can't think of what kind of party it would be for.

(The image comes from The Graphics Fairy.)  She has amazing turn of the century stuff.


  1. Bowtie, Necktie or Cravat, All are welcome at the New Year's Eve Black Tie Victorian Gala to benefit our public library.
    Come join us and meet some of the funniest characters to ever step out from between the pages of your imagination.

  2. It is actually an ad for exciting new things in neckwear. So good eye, Donna.

    I really think it'd be great as a bridal shower invitation.

  3. I think they look a little like strippers, so I'm going for bachelorette party :)

  4. i thought bachelorette party too, just didn't want to say. :)

    They seriously look naked. I want to paint them with kids' water colors.

  5. They are the League of Ordinary Gentlemen.

  6. All I can think of is that movie with Minnie Driver, Rupert Everett, Julianne Moore and Cate Blanchett, An Ideal Husband. Those ties just give it the feeling of a period piece. Of course, that doesn't mean there's no impropriety happening. Why aren't they all looking in the same direction? They all have shifty eyes that make me think they're hiding something...
