Dior does paisleys

Here is what I consider the ultimate modern interpretation of paisleys (until Gene Meyer, coming up tomorrow), a super-wide Christian Dior tie of the finest woven polyester. I would date this tie at mid-to-late 1960s, the height of Carnaby Street mod and flower power fashions. Bless Mike Meyers for his revival of sartorial psychedelica in the Austin Powers movies. That series seems to have run its course, though, so I'm waiting for someone else to spark another revival. Well, not just waiting, I am still wearing the stuff, after all, and I urge you to do the same.
