I like the idea of a loud/large print, paisley madder tie, but I think I have only seen one with a pattern I did not hate. They tend to look like close ups of the slides you see with a microscope in HS, to me.
Worth noting btw, the system does catch a fair amount of spam that gets immediately hidden. I get multiple emails a day from the system flagging spam posts that people never see, so its not like it does not work at all.
Collar aside, the whole vibe definitely works for you, and even though I don't particularly like many of those items, it definitely is your style, and it's a lot better than the stuff that you started it with.
Glad to see you headed in the right direction. It's only a matter of time before you start picking out better items with the same vibe, and then you'll really be hitting the sweet spot.
