A Dress Tie
The label on this tie reads, "Ties by Jon, California". I call it a dress tie because I think the (unnamed synthetic) fabric is more suited for a woman's dress, in both scale of pattern and sheerness. This entry marks the debut of my new lavender shirt from Lands' End. It's my first lavender shirt ever, and it will enable me to wear several ties that I've never managed to match to another shirt. The shirt's "no-iron" pinpoint cotton fabric is quite sumptuous, but here is a helpful hint: there is no such thing as a dress shirt that doesn't need ironing. Don't believe the hype!
