We Beg Your Indulgence

Things have been hectic here at The Report.  Allow me to offer this Classic Cravat Critique for this evening's tie, which was also worn on 11 May 2011:

This evening Brian Williams dons a cravat of slim black stripes alternating with burnished gold, the latter bisected by a thread of the contrasting onyx. Quietly, solicitously, the jeweller proffers another velvet case. He carefully slides open the sable top and reveals row upon row of gold herringbone necklaces. It is as if the pharoahs and queens of Egypt, one by one, had unburdened their necks before stepping into their sarcophagi for the ages.
