Since I had the audacity to go out in public in this fashion nightmare, the only fair thing to do is to share it with you here on the blog.
As you can see, today’s tie is much more subtle than the others I’ve shared to this point.
Oh, it’s loud and weird and an eyesore, but when I call is subtle, I mean it does an excellent job of hiding its Tabasco message.
Usually, there are Tabasco bottles everywhere and it’s impossible to miss that it’s a Tabasco tie, but this one would’ve made you look twice.
If your eyes could’ve handled the punishment.
This one has a Vegas/gambling theme, so you’d probably expect giant Tabasco bottle casinos, slot machines with Tabasco bottles as the big jackpot, or Tabasco bottles dealing blackjack, but you don’t get that on this tie.
I wonder why they showed such restraint. Any thoughts on that, Modern Philosophers?
The word “Tabasco” is there in neon red letters just northwest of the red neon “hot”.
Those are Tabasco bottle caps all over the tie, and the Tabasco logo is on some of the dice (but it’s difficult to see that from the photos).
There is a lot going on with this tie, and my eyes never quite know where to focus. Something about it makes it one of my favorites, though.
What do you think, Modern Philosophers? Do you like this week’s tie? Do you prefer its subtlety to the other other ties where the Tabasco theme just hit you over the head? Would you be caught out in public in this tie?
My Supervisor did come up to me today and ask me why I was all dressed up. I guess even a Tabasco tie looks all fancy on a guy who usually wear a toga to work.
Happy Monday. If you need any fashion tips, just shoot me an email!
