The Perfect Storm

Like the glowering northern sky skirted with low clouds over Lake Erie before a summer thunderstorm, this slate and ivory cravat made a dramatic return this evening. The colors are perfect foils for each other, the rich French vanilla contrasting with the deep gunmetal grey, a hint of blue just under its surface. The stripes are wider than his usual preference, lending an air of opulence, almost a billowing quality. A perfect storm of a tie.
