10E2000: Nautical Bow Tie from Beau Ties of Vermont
New release from a 10e fave vendor, Beau Ties of Vermont; The Commodore. $72. Can get it as a necktie if you prefer. Could wear while reading a little Melville or maybe C. S. Forester - but suitable anytime. Bowties have this odd duality in that they have a slightly comical pictoral history (80s nerd...) but they can also be agressive, almost daring the observer to comment.
BTW thanks to my handy new numbering scheme, I see this is the 2000th post on 10e. *fireworks*
