Most of the Christmas ties of Jerry Merwin–we told you about him last week–are on the conservative side, if a Christmas tie can ever be described as conservative. But this one today is a pretty big exception. Jerry says he came home the other day and saw it laying on a table. His first thought was that it was “some sort of table decoration” his wife had picked up–like a runner or a place mat. “No, it’s not a decoration,” Mrs. Merwin told him. “It’s a tie. Merry Christmas!” She bought the tie at Kohl’s, where it was on sale.
