The second and third are really nice! I really want a brown tie tho. How much are those?

I think for various reasons he is right to avoid them, in part because I don't think they are flattering on Asian men. Stitches has the NMWA tie I think, after a gentlemanly e-duel.
How....how did you know that I am oriental?!

I was always told calling a person Oriental is offensive? Rugs are Oriental, people are Asian, that's what I've always heard growing up.

Mmmm...me love Mexican beers.

To narrow it a bit more, just one guy from that political party that whenever he wants he turns Mexico City upside down, he does. But if Noodles likes them, it's ok. If he comes to Mexico, I will still share a nice Messican beer with him. cheers.gif

I hear it was used as a derogatory term. I actually dont want to be called an Asian. It's too broad. When I say Oriental, I am only referring to Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese...and we all hate each other.

I don't think I'd wear a single one of the ties on the masthead

Maybe the blue and red one, maybe, but that's it. What about you?

If you mean the third from the left..yeah, that's the most wearable. I wouldn't say no to it (but nor would I purchase it at anything but a steep discount). The rest are pretty awful. I mean, it makes a nice masthead. But I don't wear mastheads.

 

Side note: I love this thread.

They are not a tie you need to run out and get for your starter collection but there is atime and place for a yellow tie.

Definite yes to 1, yes to 4, on the fence on 2 and no to 3.

My qualm with two is that the florets are a little too rectangular (I dislike angles on patterns). With 3, I just don't wear enough gray.

Also, how much does it cost to ship Cap's to the US? It's 35 euro to Seoul.

Regarding the rectangular comment, I can live with it. Great green color. Haven't found anything else like it.

Regarding the navy tie, there's no reason you can't wear something like that with a navy or mid blue jacket/suit. It actually looks like midnight blue so you could definitely wear it with navy.

It's free with 5 ties. I'll probably add another one. This one is nice too. Need some more green. I'm set on brown, blue, red
