I choose striped ties that according to their aesthetic appeal, not their history
But it is fun learning about a particular organization/school from the 20th century that picked that set of colors and scale/size
If you look at my collection, I have an eclectic historical mix: Ties that are supposed to represent the troops guarding the English monarchy; Ties that are supposed to represent a golf club in Oxford; and then a few ties that are supposed to represent various English boarding schools.
I have zero connection any of those organizations. Yet their ties spoke to me through my computer screen and said "pick me"

Usually true "regiment" ties are comprised of more than two colors, or a more complex/unique design.
