The Tie Project, day 75

Okay, I warn you. This outfit is LOUD. I mean, a lot of my outfits are loud, but this one is in a league by itself. If you look at this and think that it is in any way a reasonable thing to wear, then I have apparently done an exceptional job of getting you to drink my aesthetic Kool-Aid, and I thank you for joining me out here on the boundaries of fashion.


Actually, Rose and Lorinne both think I've worn louder outfits. I suppose it depends on one's definition. Anyway, the shirt is one I bought from a street vendor in the East Village back in the mid-'90s, and the tie was bought around the same time. The guy I bought the shirt from wanted some assurance that I would actually wear it. I promised him that he had nothing to worry about.

Loud? But it's got pastels in it! And nary a trace of magenta or da-glo orange. Hell, Mike Brady could beat that one without even trying. You can do better.

I do agree that you've worn far, far louder. The only thing loudish about this is those striking huge splats. They're huge, and striking, but not actually loud. In fact, it's kind of calming.

(Hey, is there any more of that Kool-Aid? That stuff's tasty.)

Um..... I am shaken to the core.
