Contrasting halves, yes everywhere. Hilfiger was big on that until recently (possibly still are).
edit- I typed this before reading responses to this point.
One good thing I can think of...if you get gravy or wine on your tie, you can reverse it in a pinch with the other half.
Interesting concept but doing one of these in the morning will be a bitch to match the lengths.
Well, I would say they are slightly more difficult to adjust than normal one but not much more, same as unlined ties, time will make you used to.

I understand the shape is unusual however I would say a picture is not the best indicator: the motion gives a different impression from a "funky side stripe" (no, I wont make movie).
