Malaysia is a very hot country. That is the reason I do not wear a necktie to school. I wish male teachers are allowed to wear collared t-shirts and slacks so that we could work in a more comfortable environment.
However, I have some neckties stored away at home. I bought just a few myself but the rest were presents. How I wish I could make a public announcement telling people not to give me neckties as gifts. Well, beggars cannot be choosers.
