It's A Nice Tie, But I Don't Like It In That Way

We've seen a variation of this tie before. Christmassy red field, white stripes bordered with black--but its predecessor had wider stripes, which made it look bolder and more stylish. This version is pleasant but a bit boring, like that nice teller at the bank who you wouldn't describe as handsome--or even good-looking--but if he asked you out, you'd probably say yes, all the while knowing that even though you'd have a decent time and even do something very nice, there wouldn't be a second date, just that awkward little speech about how he's really a great guy, but you'd rather just be friends.
