Well, he does have a nice hat.

In this context, and many others, "sartorial" translates as "Do I completely blend in to the crowd... except, of course, for my tie and watch, which have to be Distinctively Different?"

I am a visualist and designer by trade, folks. If you rugged libertarian individualist Heinleiners are REALLY defending the tie as a necessary component of proper dress, I weep for the species.

Having spent 4 years in a college which required a coat & tie, followed by 3 years in the Army, I vowed to wear a tie as little as possible after that. Limited now to funerals, and weddings.

I actually enjoy wearing ties. :shock:

I find when teaching, a tie helps due to my youthful appearance. My students also liked when I wore a tie, black waist coat, and pocket watch.

I have an utterly garish and offensively cheerful Grinch Who Stole Christmas tie that I will sometimes wear to a Christmas party.

The rest of my collection is still in a closet, unworn for five years. I don't miss them.

Lol...Geo, I have the same tie.

As I am required to wear a tie to work, I find every opportunity to wear unusual ones...

The Frank Sinatra hat (no, that's not its official name, but in my mind Frank circa 1959 is the avatar) seems to be making a limited comeback in some young/hip circles the last few years. I hope that doesn't get out of hand.

John Taylor had to wear ties to work, and his collection was wonderful -- tons of cartoons, superheroes, greek pottery, scientists....

When he died I took two racks of his ties to his memorial service and scattered the collection to the participants. I wore one of Scrooge and his money bin -- and I admit I snagged a couple of Marvin the Martian as well. It was an unusual gathering, and EVERYONE had a tie.
