I was a pirate for Halloween a few years ago. I assume that counts, just as valid as the yale connotation. If you wander up this thread a little more there's some serious esoteric tie discussion, I keep hoping it will show up again.
I usually put buffalo check under a sweater with a SC and jeans type of thing. Or SC and flannels. The one in the middle is a missoni, I bought a couple a few years ago and have a soft spot for the jags.
