Do you have an answer to this age old question?

The one on the left is a lady giraffe wearing a scarf. The properly attired gentleman always wears his tie at the bottom of his neck. Otherwise it keeps soaking up all his soup Yummy

I believe the proper etiquette would be to place the long tie at the bottom on the neck so that it does not dip into the soup course.

Of course, you really can't go wrong with a bow tie, that way you can do the Bond--James Bond-- thing.Big Smile

In our casual world, I think it would be appropriate for the giraffe to be tie free even for a "formal" or "cruise elegant" dinner.

With a "Cruise Elegant" the open neck shirt should at least be a Pierre Cardin.. Don't you think?


Either way, I'm sure someone would complain about it!

Thanks for the chuckle :/

I would say it depends. Is the giraffe married or single? I have to say from looking at the two pictures is both giraffes are single and wearing it where it's most comfortable. If one were married, there would be a rope in place of a tie.

...... and a ring in his nose too, ctav?

The ring in the nose happens if he tries to sneak out without his rope around his neck.

In photo #1 the tie is cinched up tight but in #2 it has been loosened at the end of the event.

I never about it.
