Although I am also one of those unfortunate Cowboys fans (ever since the Oilers jumped ship).
If I only had a gray suit, I could do the Spurs.

I have one 100% cotton tie. It's great, but it is getting a little fuzzy after about 10 or so wears.  Also, I didn't think I had any decent pictures of knit knots, but I found two while looking for the cotton tie, CW and HY respectively: [[SPOILER]]
@DonCologne I know it's been said already, but suits really work for you in a way which odd jackets don't. I don't know why, and I don't know whether it is worth discussion.

On second glance, this tie might be wool.   F/W fit with a silk knit that does work for me (I mentioned in my earlier statement that color trumps weave as far as I'm concerned). At second glance, this...
