I like the light grey color contrast with the tie.  And a nice tie.
Gents,   Another question if I may:   I saw some Tom Ford ties for sale on Ebay.  What do you think of this pattern/colors?  Here are a couple.  And the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-TomFord-100-Silk-Geometric-Design-Silver-color-Tie-/151163923231?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item2332126b1f          
I want the Prince of Wales/plaid tie.     I am interested in folks' views on these two.   The first is the Sam Hober worn by PPanther.   The second and third are by Drake's and navy blue/white which is a bit different.  I like them both but lean towards Hober as it will be my size and is a bit more traditional in color, i think.     But would one conclude both are beautiful and deserve to be in a core set of ties, but probably not both unless you have many...
Also views on EA quality versus Filson?
Anyone have experience the leather briefcase, Hugo, or the leather messenger, Mercer? I want something that works for business casual usually but also OK with suit on occassion. I have the Walker which I like but want to move up to leather - a bit dressier. Any sense of how durable this is? My other 2 EAs are twill cloth which start to wear on the bottom corners after several humdred wears. Annoying. Corners should be reinforced leather?
Thanks Archibald and PPanther.   I think the dark chocolate probably makes more sense than the chocolate, though I like it, too.   Light blue on charcoal or navy suits sounds very good, too.  Pink?  Any specific ties in mind?
Gents,    One more question regarding brown ties.  I want a grenadine Hober and am trying to figure a good shade.  Thoughts between these three shades? (1)  Chocolate (2)  Dark Chocolate (3)  Bitter Chocolate   Sounds like we are ordering deserts!    My instincts are the bitter chocolate is too dark, especially given my three solid suits - navy, charcoal and mid grey.  Number (1) looks best to me as it has a nice warm feel, but I also realize Hober ties tend to be...
Thanks for the insight, Gents.   I put on my charcoal suit today and considered my new Hober tie - Midnight Blue with pindots - pic below.  Very nice tie but as my wife said, you are dressed for a funeral.   Alas, can I ask two questions:   (1)  What suit colors does this tie work with?  mid or light grey?  Navy glue should give the funeral look, too.  I like this tie but am not sure what to wear it with.     (2)  What 'basic' ties goes well with the charcoal solid...
Seems like grey, blue, charcoal, burgundy, brown and tan are core colors?  Have several of these and then some plaid and/or otherwise interesting patters?   I continue to be a big fan of herringbone in the core colors with white to accentuate the herringbone pattern.
