Who can broker an end to this shit?
If you can't eliminate all the wrong answers to a multiple choice question, does that mean more than one answer is right?
Exactly: I hate "she saids" and "he saids." They're asinine, conventional or not. Thankfully, more and more writers are junking them.
To me it's much worse when a writer cycles through their thesaurus finding a new verb for each statement, so that it's "she exclaimed", "he commented", "she parried", "he ejaculated" etc etc.
Although no verb at all and just an exchange of:
is at least as good as "he said", "she said".
That looks like one of the old, classic Charvet ties, form when Charvet was talked about in Esquire and AA as something exotic. They have reissued some of them, though knowing your preferences, I assume yours is Polo/RLPL.
I'm a proponent of no verb at all. "Said" can be inserted when it's really not clear who's talking. Varying the verb is only more clutter.
1. You misspelled two one-syllable words.

Today I am wearing a 3-piece tweed suit in dark gray with navy windowpane, blue and white OCBD, white pocket square, navy socks and no tie. I feel it is in good taste. Anyone care to disagree? I didn't think so.
I'm Welsh, and approve this message.
you pass foo's two acid tests because the shirt is not solid white and the socks are not gray.
personally I find a 3-piece with no tie kind of dodgy.
Three piece tweed.
3-piece w/o tie? WTF?
Damn, I swore I never would do this.
It's tweed so it's cool.
Flannel or worsted would be weird I agree.
No tie=No suit
