We need to talk about ties

Once a symbol of white-collar work and an inviolable custom in business and political circles, the tie is dying a slow death.

On the night of the recent Victorian state election, the loser, Denis Napthine, wore a tie for his concession speech, but the winner, Daniel Andrews, claimed his victory tieless.

Was this the first time a political leader made a victory speech without a tie? I think it might have been, in which this was a key moment in the slow, silent death of ties.
