The Necktie

June 14, 2017

IT HAS no practical function and can be quite uncomfortable. It is a symbol of dignity and respect for the job or activity of the wearer. And visually, it is a focal point that directs the gaze to the shoulders and upper torso, conveying an impression of strength.

Kaede Lire reflects on the vanishing necktie at Tradition in Action.

The man in a tie is a figure of respect. The man in a T-shirt is a boy.
