I had to bump as I scored a nice Isaia seven fold today at C21. The counterstitching or counter-weave (is that an appropriate term?) is chocolate brown. But the tie is definitely red.

I like the tie on the left.

Reminds me of American Psycho:

"Oh Patrick, I knew it from when I saw you at the Christmas Party wearing that red Armani Paisley striped tie!"

i tihnk politicians wear it becaues it looks bold and powerful

red is a power color.

i think red ties can look great, even if everyone wears them

style isnt about being non conformist because after all when everyone becomes non conformist that is conformist!

The red tie has long been the lame choice, the lazy man's way, a sign that you don't care enough not to do the obvious thing. Is there any wonder that all politicians wear red ties as a matter of rote?

I have two decent ones, and one is solid grenadine, which almost doesn't count. The other is a Nicky woven, and it's pretty good. Red prints are in particular almost always atrocious.

So let's see your favorite red tie. He who posts the most acclaimed red tie wins the honor of begging Kent Wang to award him a pocket square for this non-contest that Kent has not endorsed. There may be another prize, announced later.

Sorry, completely forgot to answer this one.

The tie itself is from a local place, but you can find the same silk in different colors from Etro:

Red ties are only good for whimsy.

i agree red is indeed the lazy man's tie. my fav is an old red and gold christian dior monsieur floral tie. i'm too lazy to use a digital camera so i took pics using my razr instead. somehow the pics don't capture the sheen of the tie but anyways...
