Ah, what the hell. I don't expect many votes, but the thread inspired my tie choice this morning and I had a minute to take a picture...

Huntsman
Borrelli
Brian & Barry
Drake's
Trafalgar
Eddie Bauer USA made cashmere
Panthy
Meermin (pretty sure these are literally the exact same as Clags' -- color is more snuff than it appears)

Not sure what the fuss was about. Here are two others I decided not to go with, for one reason or another.

Thanks! The shirt is made by Savoy Taylor's Guild. 

 

What kind of ink are you sporting? Maybe there should be a Style Forum Inked Members thread! :cool:

I think that blue on blue does require some additional thought. It can be done badly, though one would hope that a majority of efforts work on a forum for clothing enthusiasts posted for a challenge would look good. Once you understand the potential pitfalls, it is in fact pretty easy to do well.
