Dude!  Just Ebay an Etro, Duchamp, or vintage Ruchard James tie from that "loud British stripes" period, and you'll be good to go:

From Spoo's auctions, I think that:

 

1) http://www.ebay.com/itm/AUTUMN-Isaia-Napoli-Brown-Purple-White-Twill-Paisley-Seven-7-Fold-Silk-Tie-NR-/361035077330?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item540f5e16d2 is nice, though it may not count as "loud", at least not by my standards (colors are too subdued).

2) http://www.ebay.com/itm/RECENT-Brioni-Cherry-Red-Satin-Finish-Blue-White-Multi-Stripe-POWER-Silk-Tie-NR-/361035077160?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item540f5e1628 This, on the other hand, is loud, like that moment when you are listening to a movie involving a comely maiden and one of @sugarbutch's marital aids, and someone pulls out your headphones out of it's jack.  And your mother-in-law is in the room.

3) http://www.ebay.com/itm/ICONIC-Charvet-Paris-Dove-Grey-Woven-Ghost-Green-Abstract-Acanthus-Silk-Tie-NR-/311069672006?pt=US_Mens_Ties&hash=item486d328246  I just love this thing.

 

Most of the Brioni and vintage Versace ties he has on auction would do as well.  Maybe he'd do a BIN.  I'm not sure.

I'm going to kick this one off with my one and only loud tie. Put on your sunglasses!

I believe that tie is going become standard issue to road workers from now on - apparently it's more hi-vis than those flouro vests they wear.

But seriously, that's actually really well done.

Works well! And a very distinguished pair of monks, may I ask the name of them?

Thank you, PoP! I'm looking forward to seeing your entry for this one.

Thanks! It's the Alfred Sargent Benson single monk in cognac shell.

The only loud tie I have, I'm definitely in the soporific camp. Trying a bit of a mashup between @Holdfast and @Southern Style :D

You've set a (very) bright and shining example for the rest of us, @EliodA!

 

Should we ever get stranded somewhere, I'm hoping our ties can act as a beacon :)

There's a fine but important distinction between 'loud' and 'hideous' ...

Cheers,

Someone gave it to me early 90s as a present I've never worn it so it on ebay like as soon as I listed it.

Only thing, which of my loud ties do I pick?!
