Would depend on what your wardrobe is like, I would suggest. A noodle-centric business wardrobe needs a different set of ties to a casual suit one. However, all else being equal, you don't need 30 to have a well-balanced tie collection, so the exercise is a bit pointless IMO. 10 is enough; beyond that number, it really doesn't matter what you get because you don't need to worry about balancing the collection any more; it's all just buying for fun rather than for need at that stage so why deploy a list?
And of the 10, 2 of those are "special event" ties, and another 2 are optional seasonal extras, so it's actually just 6. The first 4 mainly for suits or smart odd jacket outfits, the next two mainly for more casual odd jacket outfits.
Navy silk neat
Dark Green silk neat
Burgundy silk neat
Navy/burgundy (or navy/dark green) stripe
Navy wool or cashmere solid (for particularly wintry outfits)
Navy/white stripe (for particularly summery outfits)
Black grenadine or repp weave (for funerals)
Black bowtie (for black tie events)
10 is all someone needs. But what about someone who enjoys clothes (and therefore interested in buying more than 10 ties) but views ties like I view shoes (a necessity of the hobby but not a pleasure)
Does. Not. Compute.
(But seriously; if you enjoy clothes but not ties & shoes, you can still put together an infinite variety of high quality looks with a very restricted number of ties/shoes. In fact, the money you'd save by not buying more ties & shoes could be diverted to clothes, making variety still easier to achieve. Of course, the more ties & shoes you have, the bigger infinity (not really a contradiction) of permutations, but if you don't much like ties & shoes, then I can't see why that bigger infinity would be desirable to you).
Re: the later question re: size of tie collection - I don't really know, but suspect somewhere in the 70-100 range. I wear each at least once a year but there's probably several dozen I could effortlessly do without and another couple of dozen I wouldn't miss much. But it's kind of nice to have all of them there, just in case I fancy wearing a particular one.
Re: watches - that's one interest I really don't get. I have 2 relatively cheap ones (a Longines automatic for smart outfits; a quartz Seamaster for casual ones and for travelling) and have zero interest in acquiring more. I think you need to be a bit of a mechanical engineering type of guy to get collecting watches.post #726 of 374971/29/14 at 10:42am
so we not doing that in here then?
btw, SB, as you requested, i found the pics that got deleted from that thread. no easy task among the over 5800 pics in my phone.
ill repost them together with what my line up now looks like sometime in the next few days.post #727 of 374971/29/14 at 10:42ampost #728 of 374971/29/14 at 10:59amQuote:

mimo, I think you'd be shocked at how little I've spent on my wardrobe. To give you some idea, with the exception of one lounge suit and my dinner clothes, the most I've spent on a suit is $255. MTM is an expenditure I struggle to rationalize. With two kids and a couple of relatively expensive hobbies outside of clothes, it would really be pushing it.
That's incredible, considering the number of times you've mentioned some designer label or other. You must be a black belt in discounts and sale-spotting. Respect - I also have a strong aversion to paying full price. Anyway, I get how that changes the perspective on MTM - if you're getting your RL suit for $250 instead of $1000, and it fits you so nicely, then you are very much in the wisdom zone.
What are your expensive hobbies? I'm curious.post #730 of 374971/29/14 at 11:14ampost #731 of 374971/29/14 at 11:35ampost #732 of 374971/29/14 at 11:47ampost #733 of 374971/29/14 at 11:48ampost #734 of 374971/29/14 at 12:01pmpost #735 of 374971/29/14 at 12:54pm
Ok, busy lunch break looking at ties...
So many different types of Grenadine at Sam Hober
I'm definitely going to get a Burgundy or Dark Red, Forest Green and Navy Grenadine. I just need to decide how big the texture/Grenadine should be. IE:
They have some nice Macclesfields at Sam Hober too, thoughts?
Is this Henry Carter too bright? I really like the green.
I'm eyeing this HC as well. It's not as blue when you zoom in on their site
I'm leaning towards this Panta, even though I really want the green one.
Thoughts on this one from Epaulet?
