usually that is true!
i take no issue with that at all. perfectly reasonable.
glad you took no offense!
the purple tie was also one included with purpose.
its an example of a tie that had it not been for the self patterned geometric squares, could have been ok. that was a situation where an otherwise ok, if bold, tie, was ruined by one too many components. a simple purple tie with dots can be great. i have owned 2 myself. since sold simple for lack of use. but self patterned geometric squares all about, bad.
