I've tried to search but this question may not have been brought up before:
How large are the patterns in a tie considered 'too large'?
I'm specifically thinking about 'foulard' patterns. How many times should the small patterns be repeated, say, at the widest point for it to be considered appropriate? If a tie has the pattern repeated only 4-5 times at the widest point (so 0.8" per pattern), is the pattern too large?
