When Is A Tie Not Just A Tie? When It Is An American Icon--Or A Bunch Of Them!

Brian knots up one from the Ward Cleaver Collection tonight. It's a simple silk striper of navy blue and berry red, and it's just about as traditional as a tie can be. It's "Honey, I'm home!" and wood panelling in the den; it's "Ask your father" and not spoiling your dinner. This tie is the house with the picket fence and the two kids, the dog, and the family car...hell, it's the Norman Rockwell Of Ties!
