A Happy Reprise Of A Timeless Classic

Brian's run of favorable February ties continues, and I am pleased to see this cravat make a return. As a matter of fact, it represents the Inaugural Post at The Brian Williams Tie Report Archives, and I reprise it here:

"Tonight's tie was oceanic blue with a pewtery cast. It had a classic foulard print, much like one might find in the endpapers of a Dickens classic bound in leather and shelved in the library of a British former poet laureate. This tie was not stodgy, but had the staid presence of a trusted valet who would not only lay out the correct cravat, but also see to it that the laundress folded your socks, never rolled them."
