Here's a picture of me wearing my first suit and tie. Actually... it's NOT the first time I've worn a suit and tie... it's just the first time I've worn a suit and tie that I've bought with my OWN money. My other suit(s) and tie(s) have always been rented/borrowed/handed down.
I wasn't going to buy a tie because I already have one that my dad gave me in high school. :) It's blue, and it's just fine - but when I walked past this tie, I had to buy it. It lured me in.
