No Ties for the IRI

Iran’s crackpot regime is said to be reinforcing the ban on gentlemen’s attire as part of their ritualistic morality crackdown that is a feature of Summers in the Middle East’s least psychologically-stable dictatorship.

The Guardian reports that despite the ban on selling ties, wearing them is not an offence. While it is not considered acceptable for government employees to wear the garment an increasing number of people dress with ties when working for private sector companies or going to formal parties. Some universities allow students to wear them and bridegrooms, including men who have never worn one in the past, will often wear a tie for their wedding. Unlike Iran’s current clerically-influenced dresscode, ties were popular before the Islamic revolution.
