, Thank you for the idea - for the future. I love the historical information. I wonder about the sulfur color, would it be sort of a pale yellow/gold? Keep in mind that silk tends to make colors brighter which is why pantone colors are a good starting point - but I actually work with silk yarn/swatches when we get to color specification. For the sake of diplomacy I would probably have to do the the other service schools at the same time....

BTW, the colors (black, grey, gold) correspond to the components of gun powder: charcoal (black), saltpeter/potassium nitrate (grey) and sulfur (gold). I'd be the first to buy one.
, When you say UC do you mean the University of California? We are currently working on a very interesting project based on USC's colors. In addition to USC's main two colors we are adding a third color with the idea of blending with a suit. As an example: Gray or blue. The silk is being woven now and we should have photographs for next month. By the way, I think that you have a great name. I would love to start a tie collection of historical ties. I have an early Talbott seven-fold which is probably from their first year, but no old western ties, and I would love some old English and French ones. Maybe we could start making period ties for movie companies?
