Turn it down!

It's way too loud! In for a penny, in for a pound--the shirt's already way out there, so there's nothing to lose by tying an equally (more?) eyeball-assaulting tie around it. This "crayon vomit" tie is store-bought rather than homemade, as it has a label attributing it it Pietro di Roma.

My striped shirt and wild tie combinations invariably draw comparisons to Austin Powers. I commend Mike Myers for reminding the public that psychedelic dandyism was once widespread, and now that the meme is loose perhaps the way is paved for a new flourishing of fashion beyond the recent bounds of color (and taste). But then it's been three years since the last Austin Powers movie, so maybe it's run out of steam. Meme or not, wild fashions for men are out there, they just need more buying and wearing. So get to it!
