Necktie of the Month – February 2018!

February 1, 2018

FLW_NecktieHere is a necktie that I remember purchasing several years ago during a visit to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Oklahoma.  I was originally drawn to this tie by the colors and pattern (not realizing that the pattern represented a desk and a chair).  It was only later that I discovered  it was from the Frank Lloyd Wright collection.  The title of the necktie: “Workstation,” and it represents a desk and a chair (repeating pattern) from the S.C. Johnson Administration Building (design circa 1936).    The look of workstations certainly has changed significantly since the 1930s and include much more than a simple desk and chair.  Wright designed the Johnson Wax Administration Building (headquartered in Racine, Wisconsin) which was constructed between 1936 and 1939.  Due to the color scheme of rich earth tones, this necktie will obviously pair best with my beige/tan, brown, and olive dress shirts.  It will also go well with my black and my plain white dress shirts.
