A Welcome Respite From Ugly, Repetitive Ties

What's not to love about a tie in stripes of sandalwood and peacock blue? By itself, the blue would look a bit cheap and trashy, like those plastic eggs you get at Easter time to fill with jelly beans. But balanced by the lovely hue of sandalwood, that vaguely dawning-pink beige, it mellows and becomes less bourgeois. This tie is just downright pretty. And after what we've been subjected to lately, it's more than welcome, like a patch of sun after a cloudy morning.
