We were perusing our way through an antique shop on a cool fall afternoon in Homosassa Florida. While out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the most unfamiliar fabric. Tucked between an old wooden tennis racket and a large copper statue wearing a necktie. At once, I knew, this majestic fabric would be ours and it would become this radiant necktie (No. 9000).
