(1) Pictures wont necessarily help, but you can see it with texture at a physical store. Woven ties have the designs woven in, so there is texture with the different strings of yarn being interwoven in order to manufacture the tie. Printed silk takes silk cloth and literally prints a design on it, so when you run your fingers through both, the woven silk tie will feel like it has different textures as you are literally running through interwoven yarns, whereas printed silk will feel like one piece of silk cloth.
(2) I wouldnt worry about what colors you wear during the day versus at night. I think thats purely a personal thing.
Thanks alot, well appreciated.
I guess I`ll find a upscale store and compare their ties to some shitty ones I´ve got already.
