Hmm, "solid striped" seams like another contradiction to me, lol. tongue.gif "Reppe stripe" is probably the term you're looking for, like jrd said. Reppe silk has a diagonal, twill texture to the weave, but this texture is usually much less obvious than grenadine.

Haha Reppe stripe it is. Sorry, I'm new to SF, still learning up my terms :)

I already have several blue stripe ties, but this one from Linkson speaks to me for some reason. Need it on my tie rack! It's sold out, unfortunately

Yep, that's the one I was referring to. One of the most beautiful ties I've ever seen. Simple in pattern, interesting in texture, incredibly versatile and classic. I'm holding out for the 9 cm version.

Here are couple of ties from Vanda that I'm looking at. Not really a staple tie, but I find that their pattern are quite unique. Thoughts?

Some interesting historical notes about my ties. Here are the organization's they were originally meant to represent, left to right:

IMG_2447_zps86d57840.jpg


1. Sam Hober (now discontinued) - "Brigade of Guards" (alternative website)

2. Corneliani - looks like a smaller scale "Oxford & Cambridge Golfing Society" (alternative website)

3. Cappelli - unsure

4. Talbott for Nordstrom vintage - unsure

5. YSL - unsure

6. Polo - unsure

7. Polo - looks like a smaller scale "Downside School, Stratton on the Fosse. Founded 1607. Alumni are known as Old Gregorians." (alternative website) or "Old Felstedian"
J. Press has a nearly identical one on sale right now: http://www.jpressonline.com/regimental-navy-gold-red/

8. Cappelli - looks like a smaller scale, darker color "Derbyshire Yeomanry." (alternative website)

9. Polo - looks like a larger scale, darker color "Old Andronians." (alternative website)

10. Hober - unsure

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Not bad, but I wouldn't buy either. If you like 'em though, go for it.

+1, don't care for either of those. Too pastel.

It looks like it's a shatung version of the tie for "Harrow School"

^ Interesting. I don't really care about the historical origins of certain regimental stripes, though. They're essentially irrelevant these days, and I'm actually surprised that a design as classic and simple as the navy/white double bar is claimed by an organization. Usually true "regiment" ties are comprised of more than two colors, or a more complex/unique design.

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"
