    There's a subtle subliminal message here: this is what might happen to your home if you don't vote for sugarbutch [​IMG]...

    The Silk with No Name - is that the material out of which one makes ties for the Man with No Name? Just asking . . . .

    Is a brown tie one of your top 10 staples?

    No. In fact, the brown tie has come quite late into my life and we sometimes struggle to get along. But thanks to you guys I am learning to love it. My tie, from Mark Marengo, is a limited edition silk Grenadine Paisley in chocolate.

    The braces are from New & Lingwood, London, about 18 years ago.
