As I was reading Chaucer's _Canterbury Tales_, I was amazed at realising how two lines in the Monk's description in the prologue actually reminded me about Prufrock:

And, for to festne his hood under his chin,
He had of gold y-wrought a curious pin.

Now then, 

      My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
      My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin-

      sounds much like it to me, though Prufrock's pin is neither curious nor made of gold...
