Don’t buy a corduroy necktie

I am hardly a fashion expert but I’ll give you a tip: Don’t buy a corduroy necktie. Unlike smooth silk, corduroy is hard to tie and will make a knot as big as your fist.

I had two (blue and brown) in the 1970s to match sport jackets I had. The blue corduroy jacket was the first thing I ever bought with a credit card (at Hutzler’s in downtown Baltimore).

Here I am in 1983 with my mother wearing my brown corduroy jacket from Hamburger’s.
