Bold And Billowing, Despite Its Tedious Palette

Debut Tie. I hate to even call this a Debut Tie since it is yet another gold and blue stripe, but this one at least is boldly gold and brilliantly blue, and the stripes are not stripes, but swathes. This cravat is so bold, so ostentatiously daring, that it actually looks to be billowing on his chest like some sort of royal banner or ensign being proudly carried onto the field of battle. Were it not for his tiresome array of ties already in this particular color duo, I'd be giddy over this one. As it stands, I am merely giving it a queenly nod, much like Elizabeth II to her subjects as she rides along in her car in public events.
