Thank you kindly, AAS.

That home alone reference made my day. I think I need to watch that again soon.

As HC said, that would be the exception. Trousers, sportcoats and suits are all available in warm weather weave wools. A wool tie, however, is a cold weather only item. At least in my opinion.

So, as a current wardrobe builder, would the repp silks be an apparently more versatile choice than the challis wool? And if so, are there many places when the wool will work that the silk won't, I wonder?

 

Thanks Guys.

I guess so, but how could you not have any wool challis ties? That would just be said.

Also, in my opinion, with certain fuzzy type jackets, a wool tie looks a lot nicer than a silk.

Depends on what you wear. In a tweed-and-tattersall context, a wool challis could be more elegant than a repp, but the repp wouldn't be wrong. The challis would be a mistake with anything above a flannel suit.

 

Are we talking solids or patterns here?

I'd like to pick up a round (maybe 4 colors) of solid ties. The wools sound nice but if the solid Repps will work with my SCs then I may start there and add the Challis next season ($800 all at once for ties is a bit{lot} more than I want to spend). I'm guessing a quality repp won't have so much of the metallic sheen as the department store silk ties.

I wonder how many people would tell me to unbutton my bottom button if I had a jacket with a paddock cut.9uLlxh

Ties are emotional, and if you ask me, they should be bought one at a time in person.

 

That said, the new Chipp website has some nice grenadines and knits. I'm not crazy about grenadines, but knits are great.

 

I'm more of a solid shirt, patterned tie kind of dude. A few solids are good. Black knit is an essential, though I don't sweat only owning a wool one.

 

Foxx, I like the suit a lot, and especially with the tie, but I'm not big on checked shirts with striped suits. If you went for solid blue or pink, you'd of course want to go for a paisley silk square.

my advice, dont buy more than 2 at a time. buy one or two great ties at time, even if you have to pay a little more. do that over a number of months, and by the end, your patience will have paid off in that you will have a much nicer collection. ymmv, but thats what i would do.
