Debut Tie: But Is It Anything?

Brian surprises with yet another Debut Tie, but my excitement is, shall we say, muted. Again, we have ultramarine blue as the field, and again we have stripes, this time of mulberry. To be completely fair, the stripes are wider, and staggered in pairs with wide swaths of the field blue between them. But it's an awkward looking cravat. Is it stylish or is it awful? Is it avant-garde or is it ugly? If I have to think this hard about it, then forget it. Besides, it's in blue and purple. I mean, where's the true Fashion Risk?
