Indeed, the perfect job interview tie could well go with everything else. But let that slide, so four "necesary ties" and after that, either there should only be one most beautiful tie or else all the rest should be exactly equally beautiful or else they have no place in your closet.

Exactly, and given that it is highly unlikely that you ever have the ideal tie for a given outfit, you will never have the ideal outfit, only the best one given the limitations of your wardrobe at a given time.

Meant to comment in a thumb but apparently that's no longer possible - answer is yes. Although my favorite of the new ones is this one (now sold out I think, unfortunately):



Up close you can see more color flecks.

You can acknowledge it is difficult to pick between many difference choices, while also knowing one particular choice is wrong. It's like on the SAT when you can't eliminate all the answers.

Lol thats not necessary with the technology of the modern world.

Also, this argument has gotten way too tedious. No one is changing anyones mind. And even if one side or the other realizes they may be wrong, no way they have the stones and humility to admit it. Nor the incentive to do so.

Yeesh. This thread was better when people were posting the crappy-est of fits. I await the return of our somewhat regularly scheduled program.

In the mean time, im meeting Mktits tonight for dinner. Should be fun, and our seating arrangement will in no way be dependent on the color of either parties socks.

This thread continues to be full of choice sig quotes.

You could use your powers.

I'd like to point out the humanitarian discipline demonstrated by both sides of this war. No comments have been modified. No posts have been deleted. No red buttons have been pressed. There is hope.

Awesome. While I alos like that one, I think I prefer the navy with blue flowers. I've been on a navy tie kick recently, to the extent that both of the ties I packed for this trip are navy (Panta and Vanda)... and some how both have managed to develop pulls less than 24 hours in.

Actually, you were the one arguing that there is 1 ideal all else is bad. POST 3702. Now I now why you gave up the law. LOL.

My lat post on this. Promise.

Not that anybody cares, but to me, the reason why "matchiness" is generally unappealing is that it draws attention to itself. But white is so often seen that matching it goes completely unnoticed. It's like all the "he saids" and "she saids" when you're reading a story or novel - it will never seem repetitive if the author just uses them over and over again because you just read over them every time. The rarer the color, the more awkward it is to match it somewhere else in what you're wearing.

I lied.

Cary Grant's outfit in North by Northwest. Objectively ugly? Bad?
