I think of men's fashion as woefully uncreative and mired in tradition. I'm hardly the first woman to feel this way. Le Suit And Tie has throughout the ages been hopelessly dated and outclassed by women's fashion at every recognizable period of history. All that really differs from one man to another, one complexion and build to another, across hundreds of years of male fashion, is the fit of the suit.
I suspect that for many women who put on a tie, the irony of wearing something so blasť is more compelling than the sense that ties are for men. This was definitely the case in the goth/punk scene when I was growing up.
Enjoy your ties, fellas. I have about forty different things I can put around my neck and look fabulous.
