Knockoff Cravat Is Simply No Substitute

This tie is the cousin of a Vintage Series Cravat, and as such is sort of like one of those knockoff "designer bags" you can buy out of someone's car at a flea market. It looks pretty good and is nice and all, but it pales in comparison to The Real Thing. Yes, the purple background is lovely, and the burnished gold stripes are pleasing, but it does not have the depth and saturation of the VSC. Sorry.
