I open my door to the deep, smoky smell of rain...rain that follows me everywhere...falling into the collar of my coat, tickling my neck and ears.

Winter, with it's many greys and long nights, makes me dream of color...the scarlet and ruby of Indian saris and exotic spices...the gold of the early morning just as the fog rolls away to let an insistent sun lead the day...and the green of my garden, waking up from a long winter...stretching, and rolling over for a last few weeks of sleep.

These are the colors that inspire and delight! Colors that can make neckties whimsical, witty and unforgettable.

"We need to get younger guys excited about ties. Instead of trying to get them into stores where ties are sold, we should get ties into stores where they shop, and raise the awareness that ties are cool, and funky. Nomads, a hip young men's store in San Francisco, carried all streetwear. They trie dour ties and they worked well. We need to show fresh color combinations, like rust, lime and purple, mint and olive or mint and burgundy. Young men want to express themselves by being unconventional. We need to show them that they can with ties. "
