That being said. I do have to ask you about your good ties vs bad ties Help me out here:
Your pick Good tie Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
all my picks were chosen simply based on the merit of the tie alone. i felt they were bad ties regardless of what they would be paired with. not all ugly per say, but bad.
as to that specific tie being good, see below.
It's matte and the colours are relatively muted. The base colour is burgundy, which is as great a base colour as you can find in any tie. It's loud in patterns, and obviously won't be everyone's cup of tea, but all the colours are pretty compatible with a country palette (green, brown, orange etc).
