Not that I dislike dark-dark.
He could have gone with a dark tie, yes. Just like he could have gone with polished brown calfskin shoes. What he did was more challenging, and equally in balance. Of course, I understand you disagree on that second part. But then, this is not the "Manton-approved" thread, so I expect a healthy dose of disagreement coming from your end!
Generally, I hate dark-dark, or light-light. I like to see the range filled.
