Following up Friday's combo was a daunting task, but I figure you can never go wrong with a Pucci tie, so here's one. It's not quite a prime Pucci; it's a nice psychedelic take on baroque floral patterns, but it's not one of the free-wheeling, mind-blowing, out-of-nowhere fantasies for which Pucci is best known. And it has the little "Emilio" signatures all over it so the knowledgeable viewer will have no doubt that it's the Real Deal. It is a beautifully made tie as well, with a heavy lining and a nice taper, so that I was able to get a perfect knot and length on the first try. That justifies a large part of the price tag (~$130 for a new one) (but less on eBay if you're persistent) right there.
