Here's my 5:
From L-R. 1. Hermes, perfect "power tie" for business-type occasions; I prefer the bright red color over the usual drab maroon/burgundy. 2. Hermes, another very versatile tie: the navy makes it work for any dressy occasion, and the contrasting light blue stripes add some vibrancy. 3. Armani Collezioni, basic black tie (despite the naysayers, I may even wear it to an "edgy" black tie party if that ever comes up). It's hard to see in the picture, but the tie has a woven self-stripe to give it some texture as well. 4. Turnbull & Asser, purple with pastel stripes. Almost all of my dress shirts are pastel and have elements of either blue, green, or purple/lavender (my favorite colors), so this tie goes with pretty much all of them. 5. Kiton, green with red stripes. I actually don't have many shirts that go with it, but I like bright, colorful ties, and this one fits the bill very well. The white around the red stripes tones the effect down enough to make it a viable dressy option and not just a fun tie.
