Personally and aesthetically a cravat isn't for me. I don't think I could be able to pull it off. The rules as to how and when to wear one are so intricate that I wouldn't have the patience to go through the trouble of wearing one.

A time and place for everything
I have been, for a while too, witnessing how a cravat and its matching waistcoat have been sartorially misplaced in terms of their dress code. I shudder to think of the day I see a gentleman wear the combination to a job interview. In my book he'd get 10 points for effort, I mean he came to an interview presentably dressed, however there is a time and place for all things. I say a cravat is misplaced because of its pervasive and conspicuous presence at South African award shows. You would think that certain gentlemen just came from a wedding reception and headed straight to the show. Gents, please, a cravat and matching waistcoat at any place other than a wedding, in my opinion, is highly misplaced.
