Not many people know this but at the knot section, a 3 fold and 6/7 fold is exactly the same on the majority of ties, unless they are made ye olde way with one piece of ancient thirst. The folds are finished by about halfway up the front blade, same at the back. They still make for a heavier tie of course, but the thickness at the knot is exactly the same. I've been meaning to pull an older 7 fold apart and take some photos to demonstrate actually, maybe this weekend if I get a chance.
I know the one you are talking about though, the brown neat right? It was a very thick and dry fabric that one and does actually have a thinner interlining, just that the thickness overrides it a bit. Back then I was doing almost all 7 folds though, but in hindsight should have done it 3 fold purely to get the weight down on it.

I also don't find purple ties as easy to pair with jackets as many other colors. "Not as easy" doesn't mean "impossible," of course.
Here's a grenadine stripe, safely paired with a charcoal suit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I have a few ties that I probably wouldn't wear if I didn't own a charcoal suit.
That one is too LA lakers for me.

Burnt orange is an excellent, and under-used accent color for Fall/Winter in any gentleman's wardrobe. (In fact consider a pocket square with burnt orange accents, you will wear it a lot) . The tie's mossy green color also looks very seasonal, which is a plus. You probably already have the basic year round colors so yes go with this one and its very seasonal look.
Now, there is one limitation. You said you have a green donegal jacket. I can never get two greens to look good together. So don't count on this working with your green donegal. This will look great against browns, tans, blues, greys, etc., just about any Fall/Winter color except green.
Perhaps the most versatile stripe combination I've found for Fall/WInter is a navy and brown. It has a nice Fall/Winter look and goes with most navy and brown jackets as well as other colors including green jackets. I also have a heather blue and brown silk knit tie that gets a lot of seasonal wear. But heathered silk knits are hard to find.post #28784 of 373927/24/15 at 11:58amQuote:Originally Posted by WhereNext
What do people wear in terms of fabrics for jackets when wearing linen trousers (assuming it's not a suit)? Linen in a different pattern seems somehow odd to me (but I have no idea why). I'm not a huge fan of cotton jackets. Those seem to be the two obvious answers, so I'm wondering if there are other ones...
Is the correct answer to this just linen, cotton, or bamboo? Or are there other options that make sense?
My favorite is usually a mix of silk, linen and wool in a herringbone. The mix of fabrics doesn't wrinkle as much as 100% linen and the look of the herringbone contrasts nicely with the typical weave of linen.
I've also had silk jackets but their look varies greatly by the weave. To go with 100% linen pants it would usually mean a looser weave 100% silk in a pattern like a large POW pattern or a solid high contrast color such as a navy jacket and cream trousers.post #28785 of 373927/24/15 at 12:22pm
Nothing against the lakers, but they kind of 'own' that colour combination. Anything yellow/purple will make loads of people think of the lakers. It's a nice tie if you're going to watch a game (if you wear suits when you're doing that), but I wouldn't wear it regularly.
