I am sure I can get fellow members of the Penn Alumni Club here in Michigan on board. Hell, maybe we can get DaimlerChrylser Chairman Dieter Zietsche to wear one (his son is a junior in the Penn engineering school)
Dirk Diggler, Your ideas for the widths sound very interesting I will add them to the tenative design schedule. Thank you.

Then I will update the webpage as the designs go through the various steps of becoming a silk. Sort of a make a silk blog? Note, I have never made a blog before but seemed like a fun idea. Does it seem reasonably clear?

I'd purchase some Stanford ties for a few friends and myself.

El Guerrou, Thank you for your encouragement. What are your design ideas? I will add them here so that we can keep track of them: http://samhober.com/collegeties/collegeties.htm

I would think about an OSU tie. I like the UT tie you did, that style, that is. Although I am not too tie-experienced so I don't have hardcore opinions on styles.

I see on the website that you've changed the Columbia stripe width from 3/4" to 1/2". Is this by popular demand? I think I preferred the 3/4" stripe width, not that it's of any great consequence.

Perhaps something similar to the design in the item below?

I'll attempt to think more about some design ideas later today.

David, I think the website lists the penn tie too "blue"
University of Penn: Red & Blue. 1/4" Red, 1/2" Blue - alternating with 1/2" Red 7 1/4" Blue

Vanderbilt is black and gold, not blue and gold.

Yes, the width was changed by popular demand. However, nothing is fixed in stone yet. lets see... I have added your 3/4" idea back next to 1/2" with a question mark. Typically when Noina and I are working on a design and this situation arises where we have different views on a color or width (that are close together to start with) we compromise in the middle. Of course if we are not close to start with we just keep thinking about the design till someone sees the light...

And I also think stripes of varying widths, like in the Longhorn, could be interesting. I can't wait to see your designs.

Fixed. Thank you. I shall adjust the widths to be similar to the Longhorn. Good idea.

Dirk, I fixed the "7"/"&" typo. When you mention "too Blue" are you talking about the Pantone color? And what is your suggestion? As I learn more about this subject of college colors I have noticed that sometimes the main university and the athletic department use different shades.

Thanks for the clarification. In any case, I like the idea of simple, even stripes.
