This Land Is My Land


My Steven Land tie, that is. Most Steven Land ties are too gaudy for me, but this one is my kind of gaudy. I like the subtle modulation in the wavy stripe pattern: a pair of 7-stripe blocks with brown on the outside alternating with a pair of 5-stripe blocks with white on the outside. This zebra-like pattern might provide good camouflage on the savannah, but in an office environment it does quite the opposite. Speaking of zebras, that reminds me of an anecdote: I once saw a tigerskin-patterned tie on ebay, which the seller had listed as "golden zebra." D'oh!
