Understated Almost To A Fault

Debut Tie. In what looks like A Salute To The United States Civil War, Brian knots up an unassuming tie of Confederate grey with widely-staggered Federal blue stripes. The fabric looks almost like a fine worsted wool, very seasonally wintry, and the knot was controlled without appearing too tight. This tie was so understated that it was almost nondescript, kind of like extras in a movie scene. They add ambience, but hardly draw attention.
