: Robert Evans once said "If I go to a party and eight different people come over to me and say, 'Gee, that's a great looking tie,' as soon as I get home, I take the tie off and put it in the shredder. Screw the tie. I'm not there to make the tie look good. The tie is there to make me look good." Food for thought...
Agreed. One hopefully wouldn't choose a tie--or any other piece of clothing,for that matter--with the sole intent of grabbing peoples' attention. Â That kind of desparate,narcissistic behavior goes completely against the entire concept of personal style
. But,if one wants to make a bold,confident statement--by wearing a colorful tie,or shirt,or jacket--he can,without looking like a pimp
,by making sure that everything is in balance
. Otherwise,his look is all "sound and fury,signifying nothing." Â
