Cruise Ship Reverie Cravat

* The crisp true blue and clean white stripes of this tie are refreshing and cool. They spark an immediate reverie in which you are leaning on the rail of the cruise ship as it cuts through the impossibly clear water below. The air is brisk and feels slightly moist with just a kiss of brine and you breathe deeply and relax. You sense, rather than actually hear, the hum of the engines down below as the huge ship takes you further away from your real life and ringing phones and endless piles of papers and emails and bills and people always talking and taking. You smile, small and knowing at first, then gradually break into a full grin. It doesn't really matter what your ticket says. All you know is that you're headed away.
