Comments: The Tie Project, days 231-240

I asked my 8-year-old to take a look at the Tie Project today.

231: "No, that doesn't go."

232: "Oh, no."

233: "That shirt needs a new tie."

234: "That burns my eyes."

235: "Yeah, that's good."

236: "That looks good."

237: "Okay."

238: "No."

239: "Yes, that's good for Valentine's Day."

240: "Yeah, I like that."

It's hard to understand the child's aesthetic sensibility. I thought it was consistent until he expressed his appreciation of #240. (#240 is bewitching.)

I have to disagree with the 8-year-old on 240. If the blues in 238 are different, what of the pinks in 240? I think that combo has only shape going for it, which to my eye is insufficient.

234 and 235 are both splendid, though.

Orange: It might be my M.O. in action -- at first, people think the outfits are strange, but slowly they are won over.

Rubrick: But in 240, the tie has duskier versions of both the pink and blue-gray colors in the shirt, as well as the echoing of the shape. So, basically, I'm right and you're wrong. Except about 234 and 235, where we are both right.

or it could just be that different people like different things?

Well, of course other people's opinions matter in certain situations. If I don't like one of my outfits but someone else does, they may have a point. But not liking an outfit is either an indicator of a deep aesthetic impairment which should be seen to immediately, or (in the case of someone who sometimes likes my outfits and sometimes doesn't) a temporary lapse in judgment, perhaps due to drink or a virus of some sort. In either case, the contradictory opinion can be safely ignored. I thought this was obvious.
