Arguably the tartiest of the Anthemideae tribe, the "Irregular Chrysanthemum" is a beautiful misfit that faces the opposite direction to most of its tribe-mates. The subject of many Japanese embroidery pieces, its beauty is apparent, but, a deeper look will reveal its status as a mad dandy, and therefore a perfect choice for us to represent.

This print extends very high up on the tie, approx. 18" (45 cm)
from the bottom point; perfect to be seen from under a vest or jacket.
