Benson & Clegg Skull and Crossbones Tie – do we love it?

Real life and my real job have once again interrupted my real love – this blog. My sincerest apologies. Now, where were we…

I have never really been a fan of the skull and crossbones motif. Why? Maybe because I’m not a pirate. Or a rock star who wishes I was a pirate:

I didn’t even love skulls on this Alexander McQueen scarf* that started popping up on everyone from the Olson twins to Lindsay Lohan in the past year:

*Although damn if my girl Nicole doesn’t make a convincing case for that scarf being awesome:

ATTS (that’s “All that to say” for those of you who are not Brown-haired Shea and don’t automatically understand my abbrevs), there was no reason for me to love this men’s tie when I recently came across it on Pinterest:

I don’t know who this guy is. I don’t know where he’s from, how old he is, or what he does for a living. I don’t even know what his face looks like. But what I do know is that he is magical. Because despite all odds against it, he has made stuffy English tweed + a preppy, striped oxford + a skull and crossbones tie add up to a SMOKING HOT look. Seriously guy. I love you. Call me.

Am I crazy or is this tie awesome?

I’m thinking this maroon one would rock with a gray suit and a black and white gingham shirt. Or you could add it to your hubs’ traditional navy suit and blue oxford shirt for a subtle, but unexpected cool factor. But what do you think?
