Debut: Hyacinth Windowpaned

Tonight, I am taken completely by surprise. A new cravat! This one is a frosty hyacinth with a crisp pattern of small white windowpanes, each barely the size of a curious child's fingertip, placed at precise intervals. The knot was somewhat looser than usual, as if the fabric were whispery and a bit textured, making the Windsor generous. It is a cool, urbane tie with an underlying tinge of sensuality. One might wonder just how it would feel to loosen that knot.
