Late to the game.   I think the general principle is that the louder the tie (regardless of the source of the loudness—pattern, color, whatever), the better (more tasteful, whatever) it is when less of it shows.   I often wear three-piece suits, and I’ve got a number of ties I wouldn’t wear unless I am wearing a vest.  With the vest they provide a useful splash of color or pattern which directs the eye exactly where one wants it to go.   More generally, a lot of the...
 I think to some extent the neck length of the wearer should be taken into consideration, don’t you think?  What you’re calling a ‘convex’ shape can help diminish the effect of a long neck, no? Cheers, Ac
 On his website twill silk ties are custom length, available in 1 cm. increments from 130-154.  Longer ties are available with an additional charge. I’ve got one arriving tomorrow. Cheers, Ac Edit:  EUR down to 1.09 USD today.

 Many thanks.  I didn't realize they did custom. Cheers, Ac
