The Official Drones' Club Tie

``We can but wait and see, sir. The tie, if I might suggest it, sir, a shade more tightly knotted. One aims at the perfect butterfly effect. If you will permit me—''

``What do ties matter, Jeeves, at a time like this? Do you realise that Mr Little's domestic happines is hanging in the scale?''

``There is no time, sir, at which ties do not matter.''
(Jeeves and the Impending Doom)

This is the winning design:

The pattern is that of the Old Alleynian, which Plum was; except that we use yellow and black to represent the Drones, and Plum for, well, Plum.

``You spoke, Jeeves?''

``Am I to understand, sir, that you propose to appear in public in that tie?''

``Jeeves, you say `that tie' in an unpleasant, soupy tone of voice. Am I to understand that you dislike this tie?''

``Most intensely, sir. A quiet blue with a light domino pattern would be much more suitable.''

``Nonsense, Jeeves. This tie, in addition to being dashed smart, represents the absolute last word in club loyalty.''

``Very good, sir.''
