    That tie is far from ugly.

    You're right. Not just ugly. FUGLY.

    Looks like it came from an Austin Powers Halloween costume

    I agree, it's far from ugly, but in the opposite direction from what you suggested. As in:

    Beautiful tie

    Average tie

    Ugly tie

    Bro, if you've see even 1% of the ties I've seen, you'd understand those are NOTHING.

    By all means do share then...

    What's up with these two neckties worn by the agents on either side of Dominique Strauss-Kahn? Hideous...

    Because they're cops and not catwalk models.

    Most likely clip-on ties as well, in case the prisoner attacks and tries to strangle them by grabbing the ties.

    Those are real knots, notice how shitty? A clip on looks perfect.

    The one of the left is one of those guys that loosens it every night and tightens it again in the morning. You can tell by the way the knot has contracted over time.

    That's because you have low standards.
