Comments on: The semiotics of Larry Summers’s neckwear http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/10/10/the-semiotics-of-larry-summerss-neckwear/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: SelenesMom http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/10/10/the-semiotics-of-larry-summerss-neckwear/comment-page-1/#comment-7829 Mon, 12 Oct 2009 17:08:17 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/10/10/the-semiotics-of-larry-summerss-neckwear/#comment-7829 I’m sure there’s something similar in Goodfellas, but yes, more than anything it looks like Reservoir Dogs to me. Although that’s unsettling if you take it too far, since it means the heist is about to go all wrong.

As for the burgundy ties, I’ve been out of that game too long. I remember the era of the Pink Tie, and the Obligatory Ferragamo Tie With Some Sort Of Tiny Whimsical Animals, but now I must defer to those who keep up better with this sort of thing.

Wasn’t there some minor flap a few months ago about Summers wearing a Harvard tie? Wouldn’t that be crimson, or burgundyish?

Tall, thin, and a head taller than everyone else. He’s strides confidently apart from the group. Orzsag’s tie is positively teeming with yellow dots because it symbolizes his greatness.

Where are the photos of Goldman Sachs ties ? That will probably provide the yellow decoder

(Too tired to sit through 15 hours of Wagner to know for sure right now).
