Interesting to use those proportions for the final word; typically I thought all those variations were one part everything, though I typically go a bit lighter on the chartreuse and maraschino. Did you use yellow chartreuse? I like it in the bourbon/lemon variation.
For the latter, I have this one and dig it: http://shop.vandafineclothing.com/collections/neckties/products/light-blue-silk-linenSilk/linen so you still get the wrinkles, just not as much.
Turkish raki. Was introduced to it on a trip to Istanbul in 2010 and hadn't had it since but it immediately brought me back - smells and tastes are great for that.

Worst. Rapture. Ever.
I think if it was true burgundy it might be better with blue but since it's closer to "wine" (or at least that's the way it was described) it's already got a little more blue in it than burgundy would. But yeah, looks bawse with tan - and especially with linen given the shantung of the tie.Thanks, T! Hard to say what the shoulders would be called.
