Shadow Club Tie

Smoked indigo stripes alternate with ebony in this familiar cravat. It's a little dark and shadowy, like a corner table at a martini bar, where navy serge double-breasted suits lean in to listen to softly purring little black dresses while the soft sounds of forties swing music carouse in the background. Cigarette smoke drifts in hazy plumes, and ice cubes clink rhythmically, punctuating the occasional laugh.
