Comments: Killer ties

Your Wall Street memories of clipless ties blowing in the wind are tainted by class envy. These guys would NEVER wear a tie clip. Nerds did.

So...not having one's tie blowing in one's face makes one a nerd. I see. Is this the one time when the nerds have more sartorial sense than the rest of the world? Oh, wait...nerds also don't wear sleeveless "wife-beater" t-shirts. Score two for the nerds, then.

This whole story is tainted by class envy - it's time to bring those well-dressed hotshots down! All of a sudden neckties are discovered to be loaded with germs? What about shoes? Those fancy Italian loafers and Brooks Brothers cap-toes that doctors wear are loaded with germs: "Step outa those fancy shoes, doc, and drop your dress socks in the hamper! And lose the Hermes tie, too!"

Now barefoot and tieless, the humbled physician goes about his rounds. Ah, but the political correctness police are not through yet! "Are those cufflinks! FILLED WITH BACTERIA! And that two thousand dollar pinstriped suit! Who KNOWS where it's been!!" Soon the doc is wearing a hospital gown -and the slobs of thw orld have chalked up another victory.
