However, as a general matter, women have never been into my clothes. Gay men, on the other hand ...
Have you spoken to P.T. Williams about Denise?

sig worthy . I need to reflect on this further, on how to be the former.

Women comment on my knit ties all the time, it's bizarre. No one seems to know what they are, but they all like them.

Women basically like anything that "pops". If it stands out they love it, doesn't matter the taste. Bright socks, women love them, tie clips, love them, suspenders, love them, wacky shoes, love them.

I guess, but it's not like they are loud. It's a navy, chocolate, or bottle green knit, not bright yellow.

This explains why they are not into my clothes.

But shouldn't they dig the tan monks? confused.gif

I don't know if you are basing your comment on comments that you've heard from women, but I think compliments are a poor barometer of success. Generally stuff that "pops" gets noticed more often, and therefore will get more compliments from people who actually like it or just notice it and want to say something about it without being mean. It's pretty rare for someone, stranger or otherwise, to make a negative comment in person. Loud stuff getting more compliments doesn't mean people like it more.

I've gotten this, too, and I have chalked it up to the relative rarity of the knit tie. Apparently ladies love a little iconoclasm. But not too much!

Put metallic or glitter heart stickers on them.

That's what I chalk it up to as well. A TSA agent commented on my knit tie just last weekend, had no idea what it was, but wanted to know where to get one.

It's certainly not because I'm so irresistible to the fairer sex.

Don't get me wrong comments from women and good taste are somewhat negatively correlated. I am basing this on comments I see women give friends and such. Anything that gets noticed gets complimented, whether they really like it, or just want to talk is besides the point.

Knit ties do attract a lot of attention for some reason. Nothing else I wear will attract attention like a knit tie, if the person doesn't touch it first --- it's like visual cashmere.

Women, for whatever reason, also love pulling my pocket square out. Kind of drives me mad and I have gotten good at swatting a hand away.

I was once asked by a woman about who was my stylist while I was wearing a flannel NSM DB. I was tempted to give Manton's info but thought better of it (there was a thread about flannel suits being either three-piece single breasted or two-piece double-breasted).
