I dont like neckties, never have. Its got to be the most ridiculous custom ever invented. The guy that came up with it is in Dantes ninth circle, Im certain. When I want a splash of sartorial elegance I throw on a bolo (and polish my boots) and thats that. So this doesnt surprise me: "Research reported in the British Journal of Ophthalmology on Tuesday showed that a tight necktie raises blood pressure in the eye, which is a leading risk factor in the illness that can lead to damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision." This has to be avoided because we all know that sight is the noblest sense, and we also know why.
