Thinking that pattern is too large -- would like something in between the #14 and #17.  Also, I am not feeling the red in #17.

+1. I've been wanting a POW check tie for a while now but I'm very picky about the scale. #14 is too small an #17 is too large. This looks ideal to me:



I'm hoping David will offer a silk like this in the near future.

really? i think the larger the pattern, the less formal. I think #14 is perfect

Good old reliable GGT-8, which of the obscene number of Hober's I own, is the one (in varying widths) I wear the most these days:

2.5" for wear with soft unfused button down collars casually (grenadines, in lieu of knits for this purpose, which I don't care for), 2.75" and 3" for spread collars/suits, depending on lapel width. Plus, midnight navy goes with everything IMO - and I wear it with just about that.

I am no expert on matters such as these but your plan seems reasonable to me.
