Indigo Surprise

.. At first glance, it was a solid violet tie. Forgiveable, though, because it was obviously of raw silk. Then, after several moment of careful observation, it revealed itself to be not violet at all, but in fact, indigo. Intrigued, I watched even more carefully because I have fallen victim to the subtle patterning of Brian Williams' ties before. My patience was rewarded: razorlike pinstriping! Brian Williams, your wardrobe tonight was like an Impressionist painting. From far away, you looked conservative in your black suit, crisp white shirt, and monochromatic tie. But up close, your shade-shifting cravat was jaunty with racing stripes! You are Bond-like in your daring mystique, Brian Williams. Am I in love with you or your ties?
