So many neckties here in Chicago. Which reminded me of this sketchbook piece I did. I own neckties. I collect them. I actually have a few dozen club and regimental ties given me by a physician to the Royal Family. But I seldom wear them. I'd feel silly wearing a tie in my studio. I envy those important and powerful people who do get to dress that way, like my dad did when he worked in one of these big Chicago skyscrapers.
