Crappy Tie Has Had Its Run

This cravat just looks...crappy. I feel an immediate antipathy toward its commercial-looking Microsoft Windows blue and its staggered trio of narrow white stripes placed at wide intervals. The fabric looks like poor quality taffeta--you know, like the kind of stuff that a Halloween princess costume is made out of and itches like crazy. It was even wrinkled. This is the kind of tie someone buys for a certain look--one time--like for a costume for a play or a musical called something like "Sailors Come Ashore!" and then throws away after the run. Well, it's had its run.
