Any challis or Irish poplins?
Thanks, Testudo - for some reason I'm just not really into burgundy ties - I have the one burgundy striped and that's about it. I have a kind of brown/white mix knit, so between that and the chocolate grenadine I think I'm ok there, but of course I'm likely to see a brown knit at some point in the not too distant future that will seem like a necessity. And yes, I do have a couple of different navys - a grenadine and a crepe wool - and the shepard check black and white.
One the middle two that you refer to, the striped one is a little better than it looks in the pic as the light stripe is kind of a peach rather than white. But it's not my favorite tie and I don't wear it too often. The green/blue floral one you kinda either love or hate. I love it as it really plays with light well in person and I think makes a nice evening tie. The colors on the one you call teal are kinda off in that pic - it's really just a green and white.
Great suggestion on the challis and poplins though - I have a couple of swatch sets of those from Hober, I should look at them more carefully.
