Often the difference between conservative and bold, sartorially speaking, is just a matter of scale. If the pattern on this tie from Hubert of Milano were much smaller, it would look pretty ordinary (see my Hickey Freeman tie), but blown up to this size it's a Retro piece. That said, its retro qualities are chameleonic: Modern Art 50s? Pop Art 60s? Tasteless 70s?
