Also, yes, I am now subscribed to the WAYWRN threads, but it's definitely hard to keep up.
I tend to think a knit tie goes best -but by no means exclusively - with coarser weaves in shirts (eg 2 ply) and jackets. and better in winter, although that's more because of the association wool=cold=winter =heavier coarser weaves than a visual thing
