Cool! Five responses so far, including from unbel and gdl. Go ahead and fill it out, gents. I'll forward the responses to NMWA. Also, you should all put this P&H Glorious Twelfth blue/brown/burgundy check as your first choice. Because it is self-evidently awesome and deserves to get made.

I thought that thread was a piss-take. No? Check ties (even beyond the shepherd check wedding tie) have a pretty long history, as I understand it. Some tie makers have probably stretched that tradition a bit recently by using jacketing cloths that look like what they are when made into ties. But a check wool tie with appropriate texture, tasteful colors, and a properly scaled pattern can be part of a coherent fit (with or without a human head associated). It remains an...
