My thoughts of clags collection:




-Bigi: Dislike that "septuple" stripe design. "Busy"
-Yount: Like
-PG: Dislike that electric blue shade




-Yount: Dislike that red, black and white color scheme. Chicago Bulls
-Drakes: Dislike, same as above
-Yount: On the fence - not sure if I like those chunky triple stripes




-Drakes: Ambivalent - not a light color tie guy
-Drakes: Ambivalent - not a light color tie guy
-Gitman: Dislike this one because the color scheme is too "warm" - red and burnt sienna. I prefer cooler colors with an earthy brown like that





-Panta: On the fence, would prefer a darker shade of blue-
-Panta: Like
-SS: Like





Yount: Like
AK: Like




Dunhill: Like, except for the logo at the bottom
Hober: Like, except for the apparent wideness of the tie (3.75 to 4?)
RJ: On the fence, like the colors but not sure about that "septuple" stripe design again




Sackett: Dislike the scale. Would be better with wider blue/brown stripes
Hober: Like the gren

jrd, something is up with your monitor. Seriously. For example, the M&S stripes are maroon/burgundy, not brown. And the Yount and Drakes you dislike for being black..l.have no black. The Yount has light to medium brown and the Drakes brown. The electric blue of the PC is actually electric green.

Also, totally agree about the M&S stripe width.

Tchoy, excellent collection.

Nice collection, tchoy! Can't say the same about Claghorn's. I'd only buy one of his... the Hober, which he doesn't even like...

You're correct on all counts. It's not so much that my monitor sucks, I just didn't click for big images for color confirmation. Bad judgement of first glance

Still don't like the red/brown/white combo.

Hmmm why? If not mistaken, that tie is from Vanda. I just bought one recently....

It just feels busy to me, and does not visually appeal to me. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it, just means I don't love it.
