When the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain and the United States convened against the pastoral mountain-range backdrop at Elmau Castle in southern German for their customary “family photo,” all seven opted to wear jackets without ties, marking the first time in forty years this has happened.

  1. Just my opinion, but I’d pay more attention to a gentleman with a tie.
    Even when its worn RAKISHLY ASKEW as with Comme Des Garcons,
    or HANDSOME COOL as with Prada!
    Timeless gentleman style.
