Oh, Brian. I remember when you first wore this tie. We here at The Report--along with our readers--were thrilled. It was the first cravat with even a hint of green. True, it is still the deep suitcoat navy field that so many of your ties share. Yes, it is only a moderately wide forest green stripe. But after years of suspense and suffering through such cravats as the Peculiarly Creased Lunchbag Tie and the Kidney Bean/Bodyworks Tie, we rejoiced!
Now, of course, having been sedated and bludgeoned by Stripery, we are less impressed.
