Agreed! Perhaps things will change to the better now when the Armory takes command of things.

If anything, I fear the reverse is happening. Since then Armoury takeover I see more and more ties in 7cm width

If so that's a bit strange since most Drakes ties on their website are available in 9 cm width and it seems they are focusing their business mostly on classical style rather than "fashion".

I would have so many more Drake's ties if it weren't for the 7cm width ruining them.

I have not heard a single person say anything good about the 7cm ties

You would wonder why the Drakes / Armoury guys persist with them. It is not even as if the whole slim tie, narrow lapels look is still in fashion.

I may drop them a friendly note.

Dunno if this tie makes the cut for CBD.

They're not in fashion, no. However, they are popular with your less interested consumer who wants to be seen as trendy i.e. the masses who are consistently about 3-4 years behind the curve.

Nice but too light weight.

The "red" is a deep burgundy IRL, if that help at all. Which I presume it doesn't.

What's the consensus on contrast collar shirts and cuffs in CBD environments? I'm sure it varies by city, organization, age and a host of other factors. If I can baseline this from a trad perspective - it will be a start.

"NFW" is the baseline consensus
