Comments: The Tie Project, days 164-173

Every little tie he wears is magic,
Everything he wears...

Um, never mind.

for the future: I never cut the buttonholes until I've selected the buttons.

Rubrick: From what I hear, there isn't much that doesn't turn you on.

Dianna: Next time I probably just won't get fancy with the buttons; they're almost always under a tie anyway.

Obviously I'm a little late here, but for the record... the phrase "not up to your usual standards" was entirely the wrong way of expressing my underlying intention, as is highlighted by the fact that, of the combinations 164 through 173, I would have to rank 173 as either my third or fourth favorite of the ten. Indeed, as Rick rightly pointed out, it's hard to imagine a more satisfying match. (The two or three that I rank higher are not more satisfying in their matchingness.)

What I really should have said at the time was, "Why, Francis, all this time I've been under the misapprehension that your approach to matching shirts to ties was limited only to an almost chameleon-like blending-in effect. As impressive as those combinations are, I'm now beginning to appreciate that they merely scratch the surface of the full depth of your shirt/tie matching skills."

I'm sure I would have figured out your subtext if I'd had more sleep over the weekend.
