The ties are lined and untipped. It's a light lining but allows for a nice knot, drape and so the seams of the tie don't show through the fabric. For those of you with similar untipped ties from Kiton etc, it's the same thing. If you are really inquisitive, there is a voxsartoria pictorial thread on unlined/lined multi fold ties somewhere.
Here are some pics. Basically, all swatches are "straight" so you need to rotate them 45 degrees. So generally, a swatch that has a diagonal design will make up as a straight patterned tie and vice versa.
If you think that is a lot for a guy to pay for a UFO, you should see what some guys are willing to pay for Uranus.

Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier. The bottom is the fabric swatch. The top is the fabric as a tie (fabric cut on bias).
I think Capelli probably misunderstood the question. Both of my tie makers cut at 45 degrees, I know nothing of tie making but my Italian maker has been around forever and makes for their own high dollar brand and others.Here is Drakes cutting at 45 degrees:http://www.theguardian.com/money/2010/feb/06/make-a-silk-tieAnd if you go to Sam Hober's site, it's the same thing. I've never seen a tie not cut at 45 degrees.
All patterns are "straight" but cut diagonally. The tie and the swatch are one in the same.
Here is the H&S Crispaire in solid and some houndstooth, all 9/10oz and also a 7 1/2 oz fabric from their Dakota book. If you guys want the H&S, I can handle the logistics of ordering/shipping etc.
