I'm relieved. I'm not such of a fan of the brown one either but I'm really liking the green.
I'll freely admit they're not for everyone- and may be a good posting in the "how to get your ass fired today" thread. They're definitely not for everyday,but I can wear them w/o adverse career consequences and they're fun, so there.

How do the pleated ties work? Is the blade end super-pleated (like the Hermes pleated scarves) and then sewn onto a normal "rest-of-tie"? What about the contrast color knots. Is it just a different color silk in the knot area or is there a more complex gimmick. BTW, I am a fan of the old-style Charvet prints and have a few of Charvet' snewer ones. I can't find much use for them except on weekends and that is when I usually wear bowties. I am hoping they come in handier during the Summer months. Also, I note that some of them use the same silk as in the Holliday & Brown reissues floating around. Here is a Charvet one (I have this, too) that I have also seen as H&B. The H&B version is fashionably narrower: It is from VCH, so I don't know how long the image will last.

Not really. It just looks like the guy who crapped it out ate something less colorful for dinner the night before.

they're pleated then sewn ( the pleats go around the back of the tie). Seems like Charvet has picked up on it as I saw a pleated Charvet tie at Saks.

Missoni also does contrasting knots. either there's a seam with the other silk or the silk pattern changes around where you'd tie the knot. Pancaldi favors the latter, Missoni the former.
