Debut Tie: Cadet With Navy Stripes

A quick consult with the Tie Report Archives confirmed it: tonight's tie is new. This evening's offering was a light cadet blue with narrow navy stripes. It looked to be of quality fabric, probably silk, and the knot was controlled and fine. The fabric was full but not thick, and the cut was generous. This was not a department store tie, but one to almost mark a return to the now legendary Glory Days Of Ties, circa early February, when Brian trotted out the series of vintage-look ties. Those were the halcyon days, my friends...but, in the words of the immortal Robert Frost, "nothing gold can stay."
