Debut Tie: Cornflower And Putty Stripe

After missing Brian's tie last night and seeing only an unsatisfying rendition of it on the webcast, I was feeling very dedicated to tonight's viewing. I cannot recall this particular tie, a lovely variation of the French blue and vanilla. This one is the same sized stripes, but of cornflower and putty. I believe the knot was a four-in-hand and not a Windsor as well, for it was long and doubly-dimpled. This tie is a metaphor for Brian himself: the putty is staid and serious, while the cornflower is a bit of a wink and a smile. That might work on me tonight, Bri, but you've got a long way to go to make up for the Tie Which Shall No Longer Be Reviewed And Is Now Dead To Me. A long way.
