“Interesting you should ask. Why neckwear? Why, especially, fancy neckware? Neckware has a purpose. A place in the world. You can’t get anywhere in this world without the right neckware. Whether it’s a tie, a scarf, a bandana—doesn’t matter. There are expectations. Somewhere along the line, somebody had to come up with a criteria for determining who was acceptable and who wasn’t. It could have been as far back as the stone age. A way of picking the smart mate from the idiot. That guy wore an animal skin around his neck. It kept him warm, or kept off the sun. The woman chose him, and the smart genes perpetuated. Now here we are thousands of years later and neckware is still important. Put the damn tie on. Let’s go.”
