Terminalogical exactitude is not something that I care a great deal about, not in this context, at least. I meant a striped tie in which the stripes descend "from the heart", and I think that was not difficult to discern. I dislike the American striped tie in which the stripes descend from the top right to bottom left. So, I was attempting to state that my personal preference would be if the tie had been of the English variety. A Harris tweed jacket is a wonderful thing. And it looks perfectly fine with the OCBD and silk tie in the picture. And at this point, we're in de gustibus non est disputandum territory.
