There is the shantung version and "regular" version (what I have).

What would your first choices look like?
I was thinking of picking up a burgundy knit/gren if I could find one that wasn't too pricey (also scouring ebay).
I didn't say they were my best ties. I said they were the ones I thought most suitable for interviews. I have a neat kiton I really like, but it has a bit of a satin feel and sheen to it and I don't think shiny works all that well here.
Regarding the rest of your statement. I really don't feel like getting into this right now. I will say though, that I have decided to spend money outside of a hobby for clothes that I never wear. I rarely wear suits...ever and haven't really been wearing ties much either. I touched ties for the first time in 3 weeks when i took all of these out.
I know your opinions are strong, as are your convictions, but for now I'm content appreciating menswear from a distance and learning for when I am in a situation that better merits use of that knowledge.
To be fair, I wouldn't rebuy more than half the ties I currently own, but it is what it is.
What about the blue/green repp on the left here:
(honestly speaking, I wasn't drawn to that at all!)
Re: knit. I was thinking a burgundy grenadine with a 'regular' blade.
Would you think that pindots would be a good pick?
Something like these:
The blue knit is gone. You're referring to the grey one I take it? It's definitely more soporific, no? Fine for use with navy and light blue shirt?
And see, this is a purchase I was contemplating all by myself. Damn it stitch, you magnificent bastard, you've rubbed off on me!
Thanks d00d. I think the green pindot would go well with the navy suit and white TV fold.
I think you'll like this getup btw :P
