This Gucci necktie in 100% silk reminded me of my elder brother, Tr. and I simply had to post it. The tie combines the renown 'GG' logo print with a fun and quirky miniature dog pattern for a gay (as in joyful) take on the classic monogram. Also available in beige, blue, and cream, the miniature dog print on the tie is cute in all four colors. A note of caution though, despite the respected Gucci logo, I wouldn't venture so far as to wear this to a formal occasion because it may be too much on the lighthearted side. On the other hand, it is suitable for most office days and will certainly fit those with a sense of humor.
On a curious note of events, Gucci America Inc. recently sued Guess? Inc. for trademark infringement. That is, the use of the green-and-red-stripe designs and interlocking 'G' patterns that mimics the famous Gucci brand.
