Is there going to be a doorman evaluating how fashionably dressed each potential entrant is, before deciding to let them in?   I am not sure I will make the cut.  Maybe a group of us fashion failures can shop elsewhere or at least drink.
Man of Lint, Interesting perspective. I like how you change your approach between lighter coats with your tie showing and heavy coats without much else showing.
Just found the Hober appreciation thread. Thanks for pointing it out. Wonderful stuff. Maybe save me from ordering too many swatch sets. Pinkpanther - which sets do you own? I was rhinking Grossa and Prometeo....at first
I love that burgundy pindot, too.  The white dots give it just a bit more zest that takes the look to the next level.
One more question, Gents.   Of our basic core ties which isnt exactly defined which go well with a white shirt?  The pictures here make the silver/grey and burgundy look good with a white shirt.  What other colors go well with white?   It most of the basic ties go well with light blue.  At times I wish I had studied basic color theory so I had a better sense of the color palette combinations.  But I must confess this stuff is indeed fun.
Gents,   I want to order a burgundy grenadine from Hober but am a bit worried about how dark their burgundies are versus their silk burgundies.       Flyswatter - is that burgundy pindot the "White On Burgundy Printed Dot Silk Tie #3" pictured below?  I like that shade of burgundy very much and in your picture is looks a bit lighter than the Hober picture I pasted below.   It seems like Mr. Hober's pictures tend to be a bit darker than the ties may actually be? It...
thanks Gents.   I actually wore it yesterday with a navy blue flannel suit, light blue shirt and grey merino sweater.     I think it worked well.   Pinkpanther, I think your picture better captures its color than the one on the Hober site.   For the love of all that is sacred, How do you get that dimple??!
Archibaldleach (and others),   You mentioned that a grey/silver grenadine tie is very useful.  I recently ordered this one from Sam Hober.  It arrive and I like it but it seems a bit too light.   Is this what you have in mind by grey/silver grenadine?   Thanks  
The Drake ones look very nice.  Their grenadines have such rich texture.  
interesting thoughts Gents.  Thanks.   I am seeing the value of a bit more color/patterns as my overcoats and suits are mostly solid.  So I could use some spice.   I like the two colored herringbone ones very much - grey/white, navy/white....     Are cashmere warmer?  last better?  than lambswool.
