There was unexpected fashion controversy on Friday's "Morning Joe" when Joe Scarborough called out panelist Jonathan Capehart for what he seemed to feel was an excessively florid tie-and-kerchief combination.

Beamed in from a remote location, Scarborough interrupted co-host Mika Brzezinski to comment on Capehart's choice of a blue checked tie and bright green handkerchief.

"I leave town and everything goes batty," he said. "Look at Jonathan Capehart this morning. I'm sorry Jonathan, I know that sometimes you've gotta mix things up, but the powder blue tie and the green handkerchief? Explain that to me, because, I don't get it."

"Blue and green?" a perplexed Capehart replied. "You're not used to seeing blue and green together, Joe?"

"I found it a curious selection, that's all," Scarborough said.

We admit to being slightly confused about the vehemence of Scarborough's protestations, but style is in the eye of the beholder. Take a look at Capehart's outfit and tell us what you think.
