Sartorial ignorance at Time magazine's Swampland:

You've got to like this:
Barack Obama's Lucky Tie (Style)

This is how the President of the United States like it when the pressure is on: Cherry-red, with thin silvery-white diagonal stripes. He wore this tie last night. (See it here.)
And the piece goes on about it, and some other ties Obama has worn.

But what they fail to note is that the tie Obama wore last night had a particular slant.

English ties slant down from left to right. American slant from right to left.

Obama's tie slanted down from left to right. It wasn't an American-style tie.

Glen Beck should be notified immediately.
