An Audacious Tie Brings Hope

* Brian ushers in a new month with panache. While some more conservative viewers might see this cravat as flashy, I see it as splendid. The fire engine red is arresting, true, and the staggered black and white bands intercut with narrow cables of white make a bold statement, but taken as a whole, it is a fashion triumph. Wisely, BW reins it all in with a fine, tightly-controlled knot and, most importantly, the fabric is of excellent quality. This is a Top Tier Tie and we have seen precious little of it. Bravo, Brian, bravo! After the Malaise That Was January, we have hope for February.
