The temperature in my classroom vary's tremendously.  Even from period to period.  I have to dress in layers.  I like the added texture as well.

Amazing, Stitches.  I love the colors here.  Brown and grey done super well.

So you consider your wool ties to be 4 season also?

I don't think wool ties are ever an all year round item. Trousers are different because there are plenty of open weaved seasonal wool's like tropicals, fresco etc, which wear much cooler than cotton for example which we identify with warmer months.

Pants: I have some open weave wool and some medium weight linen so I mix it up. I think open weave is better than tropical wool in places where it is both humid and hot.

SC's: I have a navy linen and also some lightweight, breathable wool S/S SC's. I won't wear a regular cotton SC and I don't like seersucker.

Ties: No wool in hot weather

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.
