Happy Friday and, Happy April Fool’s Day! This month’s necktie was acquired rather serendipitously while I was in Alexandria, Virginia, attending the SLA Board Orientation in late January/early February. During a pre-dinner stroll down King Street (on the way to a restaurant, actually), we passed a shop (Raul’s Menswear) that had a variety of fascinating novelty neckties displayed in the window. I made a mental note to return to this shop at a later time to check out the assortment. As luck would have it, the shop was still open on our walk back to the hotel. So, in we stopped, the necktie was purchased, and all was well in the world. This necktie will go best with my black or grey-tones suits and a white shirt. Due to the “darkness” of the background of this tie, it may not pair well with any of my colored shirts (especially the darker colors), but we may have to experiment a bit to see what other color combinations provide for a good contrast.
