As a medical student and future doctor, I have to wear a tie every day I show up at a clinic/hospital and see patients. That being the case, I can never have enough ties to cycle through. For the 2009 Autumn Collection, A Bathing Ape released several plaid ties in addition to multi-camo ties for the first time.
My preferred Bape products lean towards the more subdued side, so this multi-camo is definitely a little loud for my tastes. In fact I didn’t pay any attention to it until I saw the accompanying style guide. Multi-camo tie… neutralized with a white dress shirt and doctor’s white coat… this could work!
Paired with a white shirt, the tie is bold and slick. The multi-camo still looks a bit clownish to me, but at least it adds some spice to my army of muted ties. I also start my pediatrics rotation tomorrow so it’ll be a perfect fit!
Tie is made of 100% silk. Soft to the touch and of very high quality. A Bape tie? Sounds questionable, but I approve.
