I tell you this, leaving SF aside, and talking more generally about what's in fashion, printed ties are going to come back in a BIG way over the next two years. And I don't mean small-scale neats, I mean those mid-size geometrics from the mid-90s and those really large-scale prints from the early 90s (copies/derivatives of the fabled Hermes "scarf ties"). Basically, the kinds of prints SF hates. I bet that you're going to see a lot of them appearing in shops over the next few years. My reasoning is firstly the 20yr fashion cycle, but more importantly, printed women's dresses are really big at the moment and men's fashion will catch that trend up soon. You can see harbingers of this already: Paul Smith has a few, Drakes has loads e.g 1, 2, 3, 4. All those are on nature themes (animals, florals, etc), but I sense that mid-scale (and maybe even large-scale) abstract geometrics will also make a comeback.
It kind of annoys me, because then my kind of ugly tie will be everywhere and I'll have to wear sedate ties until the trend dies back down again. But I''ll use it as a chance to stock up.
Anyone wanting to get ahead of the trend should scoop up nicer examples on eBay/etc now, while prices are still cheap.
