Managed Decline, Part II

This beloved workhorse of a necktie, manufacturer forgotten but had from defunct Filene's, keeps the most luxurious dimple of any of my neckties. The navy accent makes it the perfect tie for court in a navy suit.

But I am not from a stratum of society where everyone else already knows how much family money I have. So the luxury of wearing shirts and other clothes until they are ragged is not mine to enjoy. Best to retire a piece just past its prime than to fall into the complacency of "just one more wear."

After all, that way lies, "But it's so comfortable!"
