i am in. since the fourm's color scheme is based on dark red, .. why do not we choose textured dark red silk fabric for the tie?

That could be indeed a very nice colour.

Just for the sake of adding to the possibilities, I'll throw out a suggestion for a "bottle green" tie. I'm sure those who have been around enough know the deal on that one, plus green's my favorite color, and IMHO more appealing than a simple red.

How about a self-striping silk red tie, 7-fold of course. Preferably in a darker red color no doubt. I think bar width of 1/2" to 9/16" would be nice with the stripes running from up on the left side down to the right side.

Why don't members submit their ideas here, by making a simple tie design using MS Paint or a similar program. Also, describe whether the pattern is matte or shiny. We could get a consensus going of the best 8 or 10 patterns posted, then create a poll for registered users to narrow it down to top 3, then vote on those three to find the winner. How does that sound?

That's about what I was expecting. And/or, find a picture of a tie similar to your suggestions and post the link, noting any suggested modifications.

Something on the lines of this. I would narrow the border lines though. See how there is a fine line between the border line. I would use only one side of it as the thickness of the border line. This tie appears to be decently shiny but I have always preferred a nice sheen on my ties.

Count me in -- assuming I like the tie of course :-) I rather like HitMan009's example. A marvelous idea.

If I can reiterate my suggestion: I think we should (in a perfect world) try to decide on a criteria/design objectives for the tie and work out the details at later stages. I'll make a stab at it.. 1) Something that looks good, but preferably timeless 2) Something that can be worn by all age groups 3) Easily recognizable (it's a secret handshake after all) 4) Top quality 5) Cooperative color scheme: Goes well with white and medium/light blue shirts I like the repp idea. It has many of these qualities, if done right. The only downside is that it has to have a number of colors, and each color has to be timeless. This also makes it difficult to coordinate with patterned shirts. Let's follow this through. B

Would this be expensive? It'd be ironic if it was, considering how much we like bargains. Would the money go to funding the site? Also, would one have to be a member of the forum to buy, or could lurkers buy too? Would there be a minimum number of posts someone would need to buy it?

I like something along the lines of this: the similarity with ernest's cufflinks is completely unintentional.

Since the suggestion was made for a grenadine, how about a patterned/striped grenadine? That's certainly something not commonly seen although Polo currently has offerings..

I'd like Drizzt's two stripe tie (but navy/burgundy) or a solid dark burgundy grenadine. Or even a bottle green grenadine.That would probably go with both a medium gray suit and a navy blazer, which would be common to most forum members. You might need a poll (not only for design choice but also to determine level of interest). I'd also suggest pre-orders, to avoid unsold inventory unless the supplier has other outlets. Alternatively, to avoid 100 or so individual differing posts, you might solicit a couple of the more respected and active members to narrow down the poll selections (just for two examples, Manton and A Harris, but Andrew I bet would select a bottle green ). Great excuse to buy another tie.

OMG. Y'all MUST be kidding. I was under the impression that this forum was embarked upon a serious discussion of gentlemens' style - albeit with an appropriate injection of humor and an occasional troll-bashing. If this thread is for real, let me add a few suggestions of my own: 1] In my art school, I teach the hand-making of (hopefully) stunning dichroic glass cufflinks. With a bit of design work, we could find a way to embed the SF logo into the glass. 2] As you probably know, I am a Zimmerli distributor. If enough members were interested, I could have Zimmerli do a private label run where the waistband of the briefs read 'Style Forum' instead of 'Zimmerli'. Why, we could even have the waistband woven in a grenadine (or bottle green) rep pattern. 3] Finally, referring back to the 'Where do you keep your collar stays' thread of a couple months back, how 'bout this: We could have bottle green Tupperware containers custom-made with grenadine colored rep-striped lids and individual sections for various length collar stays. I'll say it again - with no apologies for my wet-blanketedness: This Billionaire Boys Club thing has gone too far. You MUST be kidding.

Can Chuck get us some collar stays in bottle green MOP?
