Wear scarves (ties): Diane Keaton edition

In honor of the cool and iconoclastic style of Diane Keaton, and with Father’s Day in sight, this is a post about wearing ties.

I have worn ties ever since...a long time, and still wear them. Yes, I can do a Double Windsor.

You have to have a certain sense of irony wearing a tie as a woman, but heck, it’s almost to the point that you have to have a sense of irony wearing a tie as a man.

So why not wear it without a collar?

Wear a straight tie as a bow tie?

A bow tie as a hair clip?

A tie as a belt?

I believe Annie Hall would approve.

When I was a recording engineer for a New York City advertising agency in the 1970s, I met a voice-over artist who routinely wore a tie for a belt. His accent was precious and sort of Mid-Atlantic, and, as I recall, he didn't work much.
