This month’s necktie was found during a trip to Bentonville, Arkansas a couple of years ago. The original purpose of this trip was to visit a very close friend from the Eureka Springs area; we decided to meet at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art first for an afternoon of art appreciation (preceded by lunch of course). Following the museum visit, we spent the remainder of the afternoon visit art galleries and antique shops in Rogers, Arkansas. We then returned to Bentonville the next day to continue our “shopping” at which point I found this tie in a resale shop at an extremely reduced price (a price one could not afford to pass up). I particularly liked the combination of hard corners/angles coupled with the freely flowing curliques. And, the black background along with the beige/tan formations makes this necktie ideal for many of my colored shirts (if they are the right shade) — black, gray, cream, beige/tan, brown, red, pink, raspberry, lavender,sage, teal, blue, or white (I’d have to check, but it may even look okay with my orange shirt [but I’m not going to hold my breath on that one]). Ah, the versatility of a multi-colored necktie!
