That is how I chose mine.  The pinterest account.

You're not alone. I noticed that I am doing the same thing!

Thank you gentlemen!

kdv10 - yes, generally 5 days a week I wear a suit or jacket/tie. Week-ends not so much.

The reason is dark gray goes with nothing. It is either silver gray which will go well with a navy suit and white shirt or midnight blue which will go well with everything. Dark gray looks just wrong in a tie

It depends very much on how portly the gentleman is. It you are somewhat expansive, 3.75 works well both for lapel and tie

Today's Hober is a repeat and is the flower silk #15 (3-fold construction).

I'd agree that dark grey is good bit less useful than a lot of other colors, but I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say it looks wrong as a tie (suboptimal in most settings and of limited use, however, probably yes). I don't own one because of my concerns on limited usefulness, but I'm not quite prepared to condemn them as wrong.

I don't think I'd wear a dark grey tie with a navy suit (a black tie, silver/grey tie or any shade of blue would look much better) or a grey suit of any kind (same reason and I think a silver grey tie with a charcoal suit is way more elegant in a monochromatic way than a charcoal tie with a light grey suit). I could, however, see a wool tie or grenadine tie in a dark grey worn casually with tweed jackets be an interesting look.

I do own a medium grey tie that I think looks pretty good with a light blue shirt and navy suit and I do think medium grey is a pretty useful staple (probably would make my top 25 list).

I don't agree that a dark grey/charcoal tie wouldn't be versatile. I think a charcoal wool goes great with most suits and shirts. Maybe not a grenadine, bit charcoal ties with surface structure rock. I find myself having too many blue ties because I usually wear navy suit and light blue shirt.

I'm not the one saying it can't be worn at all or that it is wrong. I just think that there are better options out there most of the time. I'm having a hard time thinking of too many outfits with suits where substituting a charcoal tie for either black, medium grey or light grey would not be an improvement, not to mention other colors entirely.

For the navy suit and light blue shirt look, you could also wear dark red / burgundy, brown, pink, purple and green to name a few.

I've found light grey very hard to use. Have a herringbone wool which really only work with white but is too informal to wear with white shirt business outfits. My silver grwnadine is great though for a formal look with white shirt.

For navy and blue I agree with your suggestions (less pink and purple than the others). I find myself reaching for my (only) brown ground neat tie more than any other tie.
