Not The Most Tasteful Of Ties

This tie is definitely one from what I like to call Brian's "Lower Tier of Taste" collection. Glossy onyx with narrow goldenrod stripes, it is the sort of neckwear one would see on a strip-mall jewelry store salesman who stands outside his shop and beckons people inside with patter like, "Hi! How are ya tahday? Are ya lookin' for somethin' sorta sparkly for the little lady perhaps? Need a little bling ta impress the boss? Howzabout a nice watch?" Even worse, Brian coupled this cravat with a black coat and stark white shirt. The contrast was...well, unsuccessful.
