the air tie.

It’s like a walking magic trick that never ceases to amaze me. Some people can do it, and some can’t.  The reason for this, I do not know and could not begin to explain.  For some reason, some men can button their dress shirts up to the top, not wear a tie, and command a great deal of respect.  Under the exact same circumstances other men go this route and make for a laughable image.

This may or may not be accidental. Perhaps going for the ironic look... or looking for his tie.

It’s the invisible pet dog (80’s babies, you know the deal) of the runway.  The air guitar solo down your chestplate.  The elephant in the room, that’s more an elephant within a jacket… that’s not in the jacket… and is actually just a silk necktie… only not there… so, that… yes.

This is actually a cool look, excluding the footwear. Smart usage of brown on black, plays well here.

The knot you tie an air tie with? Why, a negative single windsor, of course.

Hammer-esque pajama pants, tieless. Don't try this at EARTH.

If it’s a skinny tie you’re ditching, then a zero-in-hand.

The Joker wore an air tie. He also killed all his bank-robbing accomplices, but nonetheless an air tie he wore.

The point of this post, was perhaps to inspire you to try the air tie look. But, perhaps, more to scare you out of trying it.  Not to say it can’t be done and look cool.  Funny enough, the Joker pic actually makes me consider it (in different colors).  Good luck out there.
