Give me Liberty...

Or give me a totally wacked-out floral tie that makes Liberty look like Laura Ashley. Near the bottom of this tie, the design bears a passing resemblance to Claude Monet's Water Lilies paintings. Monet suffered from cataracts, and the increasingly abstract style and muted colors of his later works reflect his declining vision. This tie shows what he might have painted if he had had clear vision, and a strong dose of peyote. Some probably think that peyote influenced my pairing of this shirt (by Linea, from House of Fraser in London) and this tie of unknown origin. No way man, I'm high on life!
