I Am Not Altogether Approving Of This Casual Tie Trend

Debut Tie. I'm not sure I'm on board with this latest penchant of Brian's, the wearing of flippant, casual cravats. Tonight's was certainly a breezy little giggle of a tie. Its background color was pleasant enough, a springy cornflower blue, but then it all went zany and cuckoo and rather devil-may-care. Staggered closely upon the blue were white squares the size of pencil-tip erasers, but they were all cattywampus--some were diagonal, some were straight, all were jumbled around as if playfully dancing or perhaps they were the result of some spirited toddler scattering sugary cereal puffs on his high-chair tray.

How adorably cunning. For carseat fabric, maybe. Not for the tie of the most trusted voice in news.

We can do better.
