Silk knit (those funny ones with the flat bottom), grenadine silkm  as TP says, slubby raw silk aka shantung, wool, challis (wool or silk/wool) and silk with a madder print r all going to have a reduced 'cheap poly-satin shine' factor.  Kent Wang, Conrad Wu, Sam Hober & TM Lewin have decent ties in that price range.  If you think u might really get into ties, go Hober straight up. Doh!
 Wouldn't a DB have  to be longer than an SB, all other things being equal, because a DB is usually slightly broader (or appears to be) and needs more length to look proportionate? On jacket length in general, again, I think it's about overall proportion.  That's why 'half of the length from bottom of collar to heel'  works better than '2nd thumb knuckle' .  I feel I can get away with a slightly longer suit jacket than SC-   the suit jacket runs into trews in the same...
