Sorry about the background, gross college students during finals, or rapidly approaching finals but spending way to much time on this forum!
Personally, I really, really like the way this works, and not because I suggested it. None of the original ties do enough to match the stripe in the suit, or to be a contrast to it. Not sure if the pics distort the color at all, but that green tie looks like you've tried to come as close as you could to finding a blue (it's that sort of icy tone in the tie) to match the suit, but didn't have one. I think the green would be better with that suit if you were also wearing a light blue shirt. But on white, it is too noticable when contrasted to the suit, but is not loud enough to warrant being that noticable, if you know what I mean. The Brioni just stands out, it does so in a way I think one would see at Neimans, and it doesn't clash with anything. I also think that the most important thing regarding your tie is how you tie it, honestly. I've seen far too many people who just cant get the darn things tied perfectly, and it really, really shows. JMHO.
