Orange Swordfish

Actually, it's the tie that's orange, not the swordfish. I refer to this tie as the "orange swordfish" tie because it (the tie) is orange, and it has a swordfish on it. The swordfish is more of a teal or turquoise color.

This is definitely one of the more brilliantly colored, some might even say, garishly colored ties in my collection. Originally, it was even more gaudy than it is now, in that the fish was covered with glitter. Over the years, most of the glitter has worn away, and it no longer has quite the sparkle it must have once boasted. Nevertheless, it still manages to shock the eyes, at least a little.
