Here this young man wore a silk tie with butterflies under what appears to be an opal or moonstone tie stack. Also the shirt has a nice front pleat below the low rounded collar. Sometimes I wish I could see these pictures in color. I bet the tie was a nice pop to the overall look.

RPPC: AZO 1904-1918.
