It kind of annoys me, because then my kind of ugly tie will be everywhere and I'll have to wear sedate ties until the trend dies back down again. But I''ll use it as a chance to stock up. devil.gif

Anyone wanting to get ahead of the trend should scoop up nicer examples on eBay/etc now, while prices are still cheap.

good lord. if you ever see me wearing one of those, please be sure to use your professional powers and have me forcibly committed.

I don't have much standing to critique anyone, but that square is decidedly louder and more colorful than the rest of your otherwise subdued, coherent fit.  Maybe this was intentional, but it seems jarring to me.  A gentler square with some lighter blues or lavender might be a better option for this fit, which I otherwise find excellent.

Butler, smashing.  You like to add turnbacks to your jacket cuffs--could you tell us what prompts this?  It's a nice touch, but given how rare these are in the wild, I'm just curious how you decided to make them a regular part of your wardrobe.

I could see myself wearing some of these drake's florals when attending summer weddings, though.

Today is the first day of spring break for me, but I agreed to cover a class in the Bronx for a friend.  Gotta get that money.  Off on a road trip tomorrow.

Also, I picked up the tie this winter and I'm finally getting around to wearing it.

And this is how it ends! Someone call an AMHP and let's get it done. :D

 

Seriously though, the florals/nature prints are definitely on an upswing at the moment. Pre-hype sort of slow boil stage. Give it a year or two and we'll see many more. Then they'll get larger scale. And then we'll get the really big prints back again for a while. They won't be used in the same way as they were in the 90s, with relatively formal outfits, but more with casual tailored items and even in more urban outfits. Everything old is new again; it's really a rehash of the 70s echoing via the 90s into an updated version today. Give it a year or three to bubble up.
