Duncan Bannatyne Smartens Up For Dragons' Den

The latest series of Dragons' Den is now in full swing on BBC Two. In fairness, not much as changed. James Caan has joined the team of potential investors, but the one major difference we have seen (and for the better we hasten to add) is the addition of a garment around the neck of Duncan Bannatyne.

Bannatyne, who in previous series' has sported an open neck shirt, has been wearing a tie for the fifth season. A clip can be seen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/broadband/mediaplayer/players/bbc2/bb_wm_console.shtml?redirect=console.shtml&lang=en&nbram=1&nbwm=1&bbwm=1&bbram=1&package=4588699&clip=s5ep4_preview

Doesn't he look a smart dragon?

Full marks to Peter Jones too, who has worn a silk tie every episode of Dragons' Den he has appeared in.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown talks to British troops at their base in the southern Iraqi city of Basra (Wearing Tie!)

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown talks to British troops at their base in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, 550 kilometers (340 miles) southeast of Baghdad, October 2, 2007. Brown kept election speculation alive on Friday by scheduling two major announcements for early next week, though opinion polls showed his party's commanding poll lead evaporating.

Brown chose to wear a navy blue tie for this meeting with the troops. A similar tie is available here.
