"For the performance, Carson was wearing what she called her 'Oscar Wilde suit': slim plaid pants, a long dark coat with white stitching on the lapels and a bright red necktie featuring a picture of Geryon." (23)

What, if anything, about this photo reminds you of Oscar Wilde? What are the O.W. signifiers she is using to connect herself with that iconic man of style?

Also, anyone else taken "The History of Taste" with Prof. Lamagna? What do you think of art/classical studies subjects printed on ties?
