May we know the makers please?

Boring ties are the best ties, IMO. Same thing with shirtings. I prefer for eccentricity and vibrancy to come out through less-boring suits and shoes, as well as tasteful accessories. I really dislike the look of a loud shirt and tie worn with a sober suit and bland shoes.

I can't get excited about ties. The fetters of the modern man. I tend to buy mine from Charity shops - 50p a throw. I have few silk ones. Horrible things. The alternatives? Bow tie - only suitable for the consultant surgeon or the older eccentric professional. Cravat - suggests that one "bats for the other side". Only the OAP be-tweeded gent can get away with it.

Sometimes I cannot wait to be old in order to pull such things off and not care at all.

Even as an old man, there's no way I'd wear a cravat. It might affect the lines of my cloak.

Uncle Jack (from the comedy series Father Ted) has a certain style!

As an old man I'd relish taking my stick to annoying schoolchildren and tapping my pipe out wherever I pleased. It would be "eccentric old boy, ignore him, he's always like that"!

The



of soporific ties, from



The center one is the ne plus ultra. The left one is great too. The right one may be too exciting.

The left and center are great. Will you wear the one on the right? I think it is nice for summer.

I will wear it. It "replaces" the similar one I posted earlier in this thread, which unfortunately had a snag and was sent back. I was lucky to get something so close in both tone and pattern.

The one the left I have been searching for a long time. I consider it the ultimate maroon/wine CBD tie. The one in the middle is just droolworthy.
