It is a fact.
The tie is dead.

Dead in the business world.
Only dandies get lured.

By its means.
Realize their dreams.


In this simple rhyming couplet it is all said. Wherever I went in 2017, Europe or Asia, men do not wear tie in business anymore. Sometimes, I see older chaps following this trend still wearing their cufflinks on blue shirt with white collar. Odd. In my book published 2 years ago I already raised the point of disappearing ties. Never could I imagine the consequence of its extinction. Is there a red list for endangered cultural goods? Put the tie on it fast!

Though, I enjoy this trend most of the business days. Especially during a hot summer period it is a great relief to wear just a shirt. Quite a statement from a tie enthusiast and collector on hold.
