Love that last look, but I don't think it would work with anything less than a linen suit. Linen allows him leeway with regards to convention. Linen is great. It is amazing. Linen. Linen linen. Linen.
Camelhair overcoat most of the time. I'll occasionally wear a thick wool chalk stripe charcoal overcoat. I suspect SF wouldn't like this coat much, but it's very warm ^_^ Camelhair is probably TheOneCoat
A have a black leather travel case from BB that comfortably stores 2-3 ties. Sees much less use these days. At home, I have felt lines tie hanged that store 14 ties each. My knits I roll up and keep in a basket. If you have the space, I believe laying them folded once in drawers is the way to go.
Yes on both counts. @Kent Wang should continuing pursuing this -_-

GW would be my catchall, I'd use Taurus Orion for warm ties, and Shinagawa for cooler ties. Neptune is a close fourth.

Though Manton on gays certainly was cute.

Too casual for any of those. It generally works best with knits or raw silk, linen, or cotton ties.   I'm really trying to figure out what colors/shades will work best with it with mostly blue shirts.       I like the first much more than the second. In the second, the tie is a little too business for the suit, but the bigger issue, I think, is the color interplay with the two light blues of the shirt and suit.
