Debut Tie: Ostentatious Stripe Offering

Yet another Debut Tie! Tonight's startling neckwear offered wide alternating swaths of buttercup cut with a narrow stripe of white, and indigo slashed with, bewilderingly, a narrow stripe of thistle. The effect was dizzying. This tie was one better suited to, perhaps, Willy Wonka or Little Richard or Liberace. Someone with a little more ostentatiousness in his personal style. I feel like this tie, coupled with the Screaming Mango Hooker Fantasy Tie of Thursday, is the start of BW's Midlife Crisis Cravat Series. Sigh. Can the handpainted Marilyn Monroe tie be far behind?
