The black dotted tie wouldn't be bad if it were in a color such as forest green, chocolate brown, burgundy, or even navy. Doesn't look too shiny. Any information on what kind of interlining you use, and the dimensions of the ties at the widest point? Any chance you can get a hold of shantung, or even some high quality crunchy knits (at ~3" width)? Outside of The Knottery, there is really no good inexpensive option for knit ties currently.
