Atlanta for the win.

So I thought this was interesting:

The weave on this silk knit is much finer than we usually come across.  (Or maybe I'm just sheltered).

Problem is, I find the B detail on the back blade to be a bit gauche, or at least corny.  Where can I find similarly tightly woven silk knits sans branding?

To me the point of knits is to be more casual. This kind of defeats that aim.

It ain't bad.  Silk is silk, baby.

Funny of you to say that, Mr. Green Shoes.

I see your point, but raise you the notion that it is more like a squared-off garza fina grenadine.   I've always bristled at the chunky coarseness of knits, and this was one of the few that attracted my attention for being different.  I like my Fabergé eggs, what can I say.

Yea I think it depends on the setting. When I'm wearing a knit, it's usually a situation where a tie is a little bit too formal, so I'm trying to make it more easy and casual looking. So I'm a bit more formal than others and am trying to come back a bit. If you're more casual than others and are trying to bridge that gap a bit, I could see the advantage of the knit you posted, but I'm almost never in that situation

Yes, I hear you.

No, if anything I am more formal than others and was hoping to continue to underscore this severe formality devil.gif laugh.gif

I guess this tie has a bit of an identity crisis.  If it's a fine, neat weave, why be playful with a cut-off end?  Hmmmm, something to think about.

I maintain, however, that a lot of this comes down to personal attitude -- otherwise the connotations of the clothes own you and not vice versa.

I knew you were going to bring up that!!!!!

So what does it say it about this tie if the guy who likes green shoes thinks it might too gaudy.

Have you considered that angle mr. fancy tie?

hmm? fight[1].gif

I do, of course, agree with you. And even more so it's about the mix of elements more than the individual element itself.

But you if you try to quote me here I will disavow any knowledge of your activity.

This post will self destruct in 10 seconds........

PS - perhaps IROH could help you out with some advice about how to get rid of that pesky B. It is indeed offensive.
