How are ties holding up in the modern world - and in the SF world? Has anyone decided to wear them less - or are you wearing them more for that matter? Do you wear them now only for specific occasions, are you wearing them less for work in favour of maybe a jacket and just a pocket square? Or are you actually buying more?

I'm not sure I've got the time left for that unfortunately. As I've...
