Floral Patterned Leaf

So I missed another week. Yes, we were out of town again. Between Wednesday afternoon, when we left, and Monday evening when we returned, we put well over 1000 miles on our trusty auto! So there was no opportunity for blogging a tie until now. So on to this week's tie:

Now here's a bit of an unusual design for a tie with an autumn theme! A large leaf (I suppose it COULD be a feather, but we're going to assume it's a leaf), whose individual segments are alternating blue and peach, with floral patterns, i.e., flowers, filling in the spaces.

The deep brown background color is certainly autumnal. Not so sure about the blue and orangey, peachy colors, though. But the overall effect seems seasonal enough.

I had to cut off the bottom of the tie--that's not the true pointed end you're seeing there--in order to fit the complete design into the scan, with the row of dots both at the top and bottom, included. Some of the dot patterns appear to match those found on dominoes, but not all of them. Or they look like domino patterns with an extra dot or two added.

The tie has a diamond shaped grid for its brocade pattern, which should be possible to make out if you look closely enough. The tie has two labels, both the manufacturer label and the seller's label extant. They read as follows:
Hyatt's Brawn
Men's wear specialists
Pendleton, Ore.
