Yikes. The Purple Houndstooth.

*I gotta tell ya: viewing these ties on the webcast makes for a tough situation when Brian goes for the small patterns. I'm going out on a limb here and making the call that this evening's tie is the horrific tiny purple houndstooth number last seen on May 2nd. It would seem that BW himself realizes that this tie is a loser; he only wears it, at most, once a month. Perhaps the techs in the booth have complained about the fact that it's just visually unpleasant and difficult to light since the minute pattern gives the impression of OpArt motion. Perhaps he just understands that the tie is ugly. One thing is certain, he's not reading The Report, or he'd have ditched far more of his cravats and lengthened the repeat cycles of a few more. Ahem.
