X Marks the Toff

Hackett tie with bowler hat and crossed umbrellas

Of all the items on eBay Izzy has missed bidding on, this Hackett necktie is truly the one that got away.  Featuring a bowler hat and umbrellas arranged like a skull and crossbones, it is the ultimate accoutrement of the Anglophile dandy.

    That’s the symbol of Steed, from the TV show, The Avengers.
