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.

QFT.

Manton, really like the new Cappelli.

H&B for Hardy Amies. I think these fit nicely in this thread.

These Hobers might be at the outre end of soporific. Irish poplin, woven silk, and grenadine:

^^^ I wanted that poplin tie, but by the time I inquired, it was gone.

I have that poplin and the soft green paisley, they are beautiful.

Yeah, I think I got the last piece.

I go back and forth on these. When done right they are incredible but I feel like one only needs two or three of them (one navy, one green, one red / burgundy).

Those are very nice, E. Sufficiently boring yet not.

+1 I only need a couple. BTW, Manton, I love your choices. Did you just do a standard three fold?

They are lined six-folds. That is Cappelli's standard make.

standard make of his is the traditonal like Marinella

Which is why I am here.

that's my kind of collection right there.

I was talking with my wife about ties at lunch and she said mine are all too boring for her.

I' surprised by the lack of boring micro-paisleys.

Damn, Ed-- that is a nice collection of ties. I've been looking for a nice woven burgandy tie with tan or gold dots, myself actually.

Just picked up a few new ties, myself. So, here's my question: to best break out of boring-tie mode, I wondered if the tie on the far right (navy with sky blue stripe) would work with a grey suit? Would it even work with a white with red pencil stripes shirt and grey suit (think I caught a glimpse of something like that on the mens.style Flusser podcast but don't recall)
