SVB, there are very few here who will be able to appreciate and love that tie. There are very few that will accept the context for this long lived look, regarless of its place in the sartorial history.I however, am one of them.
If you can get a mirror shine on the deco black I would love to see it. My experience with it has been that maintaining the subtle variations in color are extremely difficult since so much of it is a combination of polish and finishing rather than in the leather itself. I'd be especially curious to see how the bleaching plays out.
