Noblesse oblige – New York Times (ties and ways to use them)

Very pleasant and elegant description of an apparently minor detail when measured only by the size of the fabric involved. The analysis proposed in the text explodes the detail and uncovers the wider psychology, attention and personal meanings that could have passed unnoticed. New York is getting closer and closer to Vienna fin de siecle even without Woody Allen’s help.

Are we aiming at “Man ohne Eigenschaften”?
