I took advantage of today's perfect tie-wearing weather to flaunt my new tie by New York boutique tiemakers Sovereign Beck. This is the Aqua Cluster design, and like many of my favorite tie patterns it is poised on the dividing line between order and chaos. Like life itself!

Last of the summer florals

Technically it's still summer for another week, and it was a beautiful day sunny today, so I donned an abstract floral tie by Pauline Trigere, of cotton fabric imported from Switzerland. The colors say Liberty, the degree of abstraction says Europe, and the width says 1975. Two ties within a week, I'm on a roll!

A bug? Where?

Today's 56-to-72-degree temperature range was just perfect for wearing a tie, so I reached into my tie closet and pulled out this Desert Designs tie by Doris Gingingara featuring flowers and insects of the Outback. I would like our Upstate bugs much better if they were this happy-looking, and didn't try to suck my blood.
