The Return of Wemlon

No, Wembley's super-durable Wemlon polyester hasn't returned to the market since its discontinuation in 1979, but it has returned to the blog. There's a lot going on in this tie: the base is made up of very thin stripes of brown, gold, red, orange, and blue, and woven on top of that are the bold, wobbly gold circles, then there are smaller, lighter gold abstract shapes that catch the light at certain angles. In honor of Steve Zissou and The Mighty Boosh's Zooniverse, I have named this tie "Pinstriped Borneo Cheetah." Chika-chika!
