I must humbly disagree. The knot, on its own, might be in poor taste, but clearly effort went into it. To my eyes, it's that uneasy sense of his considerable effort and planning, be it in procuring a short-shorts Bermuda suit, the pocket square, the socks, etc., that take it past the silly category and place it squarely in the domain of the creepy. What kind of person puts on that outfit (with a great deal of thought), steps in front of a mirror and thinks "yeah, that looks terrific, but I should puff the tie a bit more"? It's just WTFWEIRD.
