Drat--I was going to post that one. I got a new-to-me pair of yesterday!
Glad to hear that non-silk ties are on the rise.
I wore a white shirt with a sportcoat yesterday. I'm glad I rode the wave before it became over-hyped this morning. Maybe it will be to backlash against the backlash stage by the time I do it again.
Pre-buzz: pleated pants, plain white linen pocket squares, tweed suits
Backlash: workwear, summer scarves, Nagrani, Incotex chino linos
Backlash against the backlash: Allen Edmonds, Hermes ties
(Yeah, some of those are dupes from others)
