If you read that Andy thread I posted a few posts back, it says that some UK regimentals run the "American direction". Depends on the organization

The general pattern is:
British //
American \\

But there are some exceptions

I'm still curious about my question regarding the necessity or not of the stripe orientation to the definition of a particular regimental tie.  Had Charles's tie stripes been oriented the other way, for example, would it no longer be thought of as an RAF tie?

Cheers,

not just you. 3 colors is the max for me too, and it has to be done right for me to like a 3 color stripe. either a block stripe with just the right width and colors or a ground with a thin spread stripe with maybe a thin border to the thin stripe.

like these:








whereas i do not love this tri color so much:

These are my striped ties, not including my college tie. Three out of four have three colours. The first three ties are Drakes and T&A, and the pattern goes in the British direction, while the Brooks Brothers tie is striped in the American way, so the stereotypes are confirmed. The navy/burgundy/yellow Drakes tie has virtually identical colours to my college tie, but looks much nicer, so I tend to wear it more often.

The tan Drakes and navy Dunhill (5th picture, 1st tie) are the only two I no longer wear. I guess same for the Hober (5th, 2nd)

One more thing I'd add to my original list: I don't like "bead" stripe ties.
