Independent of whether they're worth getting or not, I wouldn't call any of the pictured ties "staples" except maybe the first one.

I'd consider PoW a staple. And I like my staples to be a bit interesting, so if I had to have a single solid navy tie, I'd have one like that navy.

Did I tell you that I think my fiance is a Quaker because she told me that I cannot ever ever drink alcohol?

Those look like wool ties made out of fabric that is intended to be either suiting (in the case of the solid) or jacketing (in the case of the PoWs). This is kind of a new-in-the-last-five-years trend. Traditional PoW ties would be silk and in a single color, usually black/white.

A "cucaracha" or a "Lamborghini" lets see how much does Noodals can hold. :lol:

Dunno. I guess I just don't see "traditional" as a requisite description for a staple (at least to the extent of concerning itself with small deviations). But I understand I've never been one to concern myself with strict adherence to tradition (mostly because I've never had to). As long as the material ties a decent knot, I wouldn't mind. I guess the navy couldn't really step up and replace a more traditional navy for most wardrobes.

In this case I think the deviation is enough to change the tie significantly...for instance, you wouldn't want to wear those as a wedding tie, which is the category to which the "traditional" PoW tie belongs. This may be just semantics, but I think of a "staple" as something that isn't trendy, and is likely to be still usable in 10 years. I'm not sure that's the case for these SCs-cum-ties.
