Brian Gets Graded On This Tie

So, this tie keeps getting a pass from me because, well, the red stripes. It's the dark blue background and bright red diagonals. It reminds me of a student composition, in a way. Basic Bic blue ink with some of my bright red Pilot Precise V5 extra fine point rolling writer ink on it, making helpful, critical, and encouraging comments on it in my distinctive way. But this time, there was a wonky knot interrupting the symmetry of the stripe. Watch that, Brian, or I will circle it and write next time, pay some attention to the parallel structure of the composition as a whole.
