    Generally, color is a matter of taste. But there is one abomination which rarely makes an appearance on StyFo: The Yellow Tie. Your challenge this week is to prove that the yellow tie deserves more respect from the iGentry. There are no example pictures because I am so far unable to find anything that doesn't make my stomach turn. :D
    The Fine Print: Wear a yellow tie. It can be solid or patterned, but everyone who sees it should say, "That's a yellow tie." NO GOLD, dammit. Wear a yellow tie this week, take a picture of yourself, and post it here. Post only one image. If you have an app which allows you to make a collage, great. If not, and that bothers you, get one or suck it up. For my sake, please post just the picture without any commentary. This makes the summary post much easier to put together. Submissions are due Friday by 5 pm PDT. I will try to include any submissions which get in between then and when I put up the poll, but anyone who posts after 5 pm has no basis to complain. Poll will close at midnight on Monday (in whatever time zone it is that StyFo uses) For what it's worth, my money is on Gianni or Tira for this one.

    I advocated for that a few weeks ago and stitchy ran from it. How does one wear a yellow tie though?

    Put it around your neck, then take the fat end and wrap it around the skinny end...

    Oh good, this must have been made for me. I have my first yellow tie which I have yet to wear and now it has a moment of disgraceful fame of which I can argue it's belonging around my neck into our garish grave.

    Interesting idea Sugar. It brings back memories of the mid 70's when adding a solid yellow cotton or linen tie with a blue shirt, blue blazer and a suntan was very "prep goes to the country club".

    Subscribed. Posting fit tomorrow. Using my usual barbaric sense of color. Be afraid, be very afraid. That is all.
