Do you know that holiday movie I love so much, “A Holiday Affair,” with Robert Mitchum and Janet Leigh, there’s a scene where Leigh gives Mitchum a tie for Christmas.  It’s actually a very wild and loud tie, and the story goes that she always gave her now deceased husband the loudest of ties because only they could capture their wild, tempestuous and wonderful love, nothing tame and conventional about it.  So, she actually bought a loud one for her fiancé, Carl, but winds up giving it to Mitchum. I always thought that was so incredibly cool–wild, loud ties as gifts from yo’ woman!
