Serviceable Means Boring, Brian Williams!

I confess some ambivalence about tonight's tie selection. To be sure, diagonal narrow stripes of black and heathery grey are...fine. Yes, indeed. They are. But, they are not magisterial. They are not arresting. They are not admirable. They are not the kind of fashion statement I, for one, was hoping for. This cravat was a standard-issue Macy's tie that one picks out to go with both the black suit and the grey sportcoat. It is a multi-purpose tie. It can even be worn with the charcoal cashmere vee-neck sweater and black wide-wale corduroys on business casual Fridays at the office downtown. It's that kind of tie. Yawn. You lost me this week, Brian Williams.
