While I favor a FIH, this is one instance where the Windsor looks good. And sorry to be the diction police, but an oxymoron is a contradiction in terms, not concepts. You mean paradox. MTE, I may be headed to Naples in June, and I'm thinking seriously about dipping my toe in here. I may...
Was in the store a few weeks ago and left impressed with the care that went into the selection of the shoes. Great mix of style and substance and very much worth the trip.

Will the forum split up? Will the current sellers introduce structured stuff (well, accessories that go with that look) or will new sellers spring up? I see this...
I don't think they're gimmicky at all, but you're right to recognize that certain ties based on their pattern, texture, or composition work better in certain circustances than others. For example, I like the Kent Wang ties you show (want to sell the brown one?), but I wouldn't wear them with a suit. A knit tie seems somewhat more casual and would work better with a sport coat in my opinion. Not a hard and fast rule, just a sense of it. I myself like paisley ties but...
