Welcome to Space Station Five

This futuristic masterpiece is from "Pav's Resort Fashions, Palm Beach, Boca Raton." Wow, was there really a time when men wore neckties at resorts? Take me back there! The tie must be from the Apollo era (1963-1972), with Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and its Space Station Five (where this tie would be right at home) coming on the scene right in the middle of it (1968). Check out the mod jacquard weave, too!

It's day three of the conference, I'm starting to wear down, and I miss Mrs. Veneer and the kids terribly. One more day until we are reunited, and I can't wait.
