A Familiar Pattern Gives This Tie A Pass

I like this rather staid and serious tie. The background is a frosty pale hyacinth, and the print is as if someone dipped a Cheerio in Bic blue ink and used it as a stamp, closely pressing it all over. It's not a very fashion-forward tie, but it makes me smile. My dad had a pair of boxer shorts that looked exactly like this pattern, and I miss him. How's that for a strange little detour off the Brian Williams Tie Report Path?
