Fashion Statement -gfh
About the only thing that the elders can use for a fashion statement is their ties. And right off I noticed that quite a number of the elders from the states have adopted the African way of wearing their ties. You know how the guys will tie and re-tie the tie to make sure that the tip of it is just about touching their belt? Well never mind that if you come to Africa! The Africans tie the tie short on purpose so it ends a little below the middle of their chest. One elder showed me how the little boys in his area tie the "grown up" tie so that it works for them.
