Last time around, the lined Strand with a split welt (and a Vibram Lug Sole) was called the Kiowa.
The Australian version is louder than that.......
If there ever is a boutonniere challenge, it should be a real boutonniere challenge (an actual flower) rather than a synthetic boutonniere challenge.  If there is a synthetic boutonniere challenge, it should also require an entire fit of synthetic materials.  Here's a picture from Maundy Thursday last year with a real flower boutonniere and all natural fibers.........
The answer might depend on how old you are.   If you are 80, yes, as wide ties probably won't come back into fashion in your lifetime. If you are 20, no, as wide ties will probably come back into fashion sometime in your lifetime and you will be glad that you saved them.

Here's a picture from last night, Brooks Brothers jacket and shirt, Jim Thompson pocket square, and Arny Guerrero tie......
I got my flat laces from Allen-Edmonds.  They are called "Fine Flat Laces" and are the laces that are used on the Carlyle.  (Look under "Questions" on the Carlyle page.)  I had to call A-E to order my flat laces.  Here's how they look with different types of eyelets.
