While this blog will always focus on clothing and style, I've wanted for some time to do a post about fitness; partly because it relates to clothing and image, and partly because of the hilarious introductory scene to Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.
So, would doing a routine of a thousand crunches get you the six pack Christian Bale had when he played Pat Bateman? Not necessarily.
Ties grab peoples' attention. Whether you're being complimented on how nice your tie is, or being told it clashes awfully with the rest of your outfit, chances are people will notice your neck-wear.
This also means that people tend to have an opinion about ties. It is the item of clothing that people at my office comment on the most -- quite often regarding whether I am wearing the tie 'correctly'. This post will be a little bit cathartic.
