This was the headline for a story in yesterday's Daily Mail,(UK)

fROM THE ege:'But now in the naughty noughties it seems that the tie may be dying. And most men will not lament its passing'.

The D.Mail article says that 'Years of declining neckwear sales.... have been reversed as men choose to wear one in their own time'.
