I'm interested in step #3

I look at that tie and I think, wow, that is just terrible. Yet,  there is something about it. I can't stop looking at it. It's mesmerizing in its aqua blue 90's seaweed swirliness. I understand how you could come to own this tie. I can't condone it, but I can understand it.


You should see it in its unfettered entirety, when it isn't half covered by a jacket. Then there is truly no escape from its hypnotic power...

 

I used to wear it for giving pointless presentations or to go to tiresome meetings, when I hadn't bothered to prepare anything because the presentation or meeting was just a manifestation of collective inefficiency rather than actually deciding anything. It never failed me. I think everyone became so entrapped by the tie that they ignored the fact that I was talking out of my backside.

 

Like they say in that musical, you have to give it a bit of razzle-dazzle sometimes... biggrin.gif

Doesn't the fantastic interior light and wonderful tan/yellow wall just make this outfit pop?



(it's a navy suit, no separates close in color, despite the photographer's skills)

Herringbone ties aren't nearly as versatile as people seem to think. Functionally, they're really not almost solid.

Cantabs, you're on especially waspish form today.  I'm rather enjoying it, thank you.

Fair point. I actually played with several different ties. This one wasn't necessarily my favorite, but it did add another pattern. So I wanted to try to see if it worked. I won't say it's cover shot material, but I think it worked reasonably well.

Foo taught me that people only remember you when you're gratuitously mean to them.

Four pattern challenge attempt #1.  I did a patterned vest instead of a patterned shirt.  I'll give it another go tomorrow with a shirt instead.

Not convinced on the PS, but that ain't bad. I'd wager that's in the top 25% of submissions on Friday.
