I've spent a lifetime trying to set an example to get the necktie abolished. I mean, I just find it so sad going somewhere like Japan, where they're all wearing suits. You look at these lovely pictures of them 100 years ago in their beautiful robes, and you think, 'how on earth did the necktie ever catch on?' I just find them uncomfortable and restricting. I think it's people who run departments of companies, who've had to suffer all their lives and are damned if the next generation isn't going to suffer, too.

 

Your counter-arguments, gentlemen?

 

 

P.S. Seems like he's a fan of Allen Edmonds. Not a bad taste, I guess.

I don't enjoy wearing ties myself and most likely I wouldn't require them of employees who weren't client facing if I were to ever set up my own place.
