RJE - thanks for the advice. The only snag is I actually like all the ties I have (especially the more flamboyant ones) so don't have any motivation to cull them. The idea of theoretically being better-dressed by a more objective standard with new ones is certainly not enough.
Dig - listen to bourbonbasted unless you genuinely don't care about any potential friction/risk that may result because you have other options. If the latter case, enjoy cocking a snook!
