This is the reason why....

That's one reason we all have different names, isn't it?
Maybe so, but this is the reason why I am keeping all of my skinny ties and all of my wide ties. Eventually we shift from skinny ties to wide ties and then back to skinny ties. If you live long enough, you see styles recycle over and over. Perhaps this is because there is no true creativity. Even movies are getting recylced, with remakes of old classics. As the proverb says, nothing is new under the sun.

Just in case, I am going to keep my old polyester leisure suits. You never know when there will be a run on polyester leisure suits
