No, it's not cool. Â In fact, to extrapolate, none of those things listed under "executive gifts" (with the except of a good Montblanc pen) is ever cool, including, but not limited to all thing feng shui, Foucault's Pendulums, and those stupid rock garden things.
Well, I almost like the velvet smoking jacket pictured -- though it's a bit foppish. Part of the problem is the whole idea of "executive" gifts. The business class has never been known for its good taste. Just expensive taste. As for the tie tree. It's so vulgar that it almost appeals to me.
