I find anything in paisley highly tasteful.
If I've been a dick about it, you've read that into it; I try not to project things onto people (which is what you're doing). I'm sorry, but, if anyone's trolling around here, it's you trolling me. Just let me critique like anyone else has the right to do, and ignore my comments, if you want to.
To each his own - I favor flamboyant ties when I can get away with them.
Now a paisley jacket...there must be some way to wear that.
Crusty, your wit and linguistic proficiency never cease to brighten my day. "Expiatory kinks in the libido" is a beautiful and deft turn of phrase.
Posting this fit as a bit of self-critique: this fit called for a warmer tie. Might be all the excuse I need to snag this one: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/unlined-and-handrolled-brown-cashmere-tie.html
