Three figure tie collection. Zero repps

You guys are crazy. If there was ever a "one tie", it'd be a navy repp.

I guess silk/linen blends are probably my best bet, with maybe two or three wool or cashmere staples to rotate for that short cold period.

My bad. I missed seeing your location under your name. In that case, definitely fill in the necessities first and hold off on the heavier ties.

Vanda (http://vandafineclothing.com/) is another site you can check out and you can filter by material to make searching easier, too.

Green goes as well with brown as blue, almost as well with gray as blue, and better with blue than blue.

Though navy is clearly the classic.

Strangely enough, I find navy ties go better with navy suits, but I love green ties with gray and brown suits.

I like blue with navy suits. I like it less with navy and blue odd jackets (though it can still be nice. I wore blue on blue with a blue jacket yesterday).

Is it possible to find ties around the $75 mark as opposed to $100 for the SF standards? Just hunt around B&S for deals?

One tie? Navy. Challenging closely is brown with green a nose back with a black green'/knit rallying on the stand-side....

In other news took some pics of a couple of my ties and posted in the gallery

Green tie/brown jacket is my all-time favorite combination.  I like the reverse a hair less.

Absolutely.  Henry Carter, some NMWA on sale, and Exquisite Trimmings are where I've purchased 90% of my ties, and I don't think I've spent $100 on any of them.

+1 to the above

Kent Wang and Sam Hober as well. Mountain & Sackett have some good stuff.

Navy on navy is very safe and looks good.

Berg & Berg any good?

The verdict so far is "no." Last year a few members tried it. The quality and/or quality control was subpar, and their response was essentially to shrug and say "shit happens."
