Tablecloth Tie Brings A Horrific End To Terrifying Month

Perhaps, Brian, you should have worn this tie last weekend, the traditional kickoff of summer with its backyard barbecues and picnics. That is where this cravat would have been most appropriate, covering the wooden tables and grassy slopes of happy al fresco diners who munched on hamburgers, hotdogs, pasta salad, and baked beans. After all, where else would one expect to find red and white checks? May cannot end soon enough, Mr. Williams, for it has been a month of ties so casual, so informal, so...loose that it has bordered more than once on questionable taste. I can only look to June.
