Nantucket Necktie--A Reader Favorite

This is Brian Williams' little nautical number, a blue and white striped tie with a breezy, Nantucket feel about it. It's a tie we've seen at least twice before, and it's a sort of palate cleanser after his heavy purple rotation of late. It evokes grey, weathered porches facing the beach, sandy blankets being dragged back up the grassy cliff, and grabbing an oversized white Oxford shirt to wear over your slightly damp bathing suit. You grab that red and white beachball before the slight gust of wind blows it out the screen door, and head back inside to make Cape Codders. Not a terrible tie, and not purple, at least.
