@ scatterbrain - fire is not enough to kill that tie; I fear that the fibres will withstand the heat and the tie will continue to exist.

Foo's ideal is 4 - I'd be willing to...
Lots of digital ink has been spilled about the clothing revolution taking hold among young Asian sartorialists (see: Vanda/Drakes/The Armoury) but with Marshall Anthony and now Ikire Jones there is a new success story; namely, that of young African American sartorialists.
