    Mr Sy, most ties are lined and many off-the-rack ties are quite heavily lined, so it's unlikely that the other ties you fondled are unlined.

    A lot of the rigidity probably comes from the silk that is used. For example, woven ties are often stiffer than printed ties due to the texture and thickness of the silk. The weave is also important - a silk twill will be stiffer than some other silk weaves, as another example.

    Even printed ties can differ, as I've got quite a few silk neat print ties by Marinella and some are quite soft whilst others have a stiffer hand - so even the same type of tie, from the same manufacturer, can feel different depending on the exact type of silk cloth used.

    Thanks for highlighting this. I'm happy to confess I pinched that line from someone I heard talking about this idea a few years ago.

    As men, we already know the incidences of prostate cancer and male depression are very high so I'll save you all the spiel. I will ask, however, that you please donate to the Movember cause here.

    Haha, yes - I've lost something like 8-10kgs this year (not sure of exact figure), anyway, the result has been a narrowing of my face and so my glasses now look especially big.

    I couldn't believe how much of an impact 10kg of weight loss had on my face shape. Looking at old photos is strange.

    Ah! So that would explain why silk ties can feel quite different. Thanks JM, that was explained quite well. So if two silk ties feel different, it could be the variation in the thickness of the lining, the weave of the silk or how the tie was woven.

    And therefore I offer my services as a cleaner. We have gone corporate now, and we call them Hygiene Service Officers.

    From Wiki:

    In crime fiction, a cleaner is a person who destroys or removes any incriminating evidence at the scene of a crime, typically a murder, as if the crime never happened. Knowledge of crime scene investigation is required, as well as an implacable manner as the perpetrator, who is usually agitated and confused, is inevitably involved with the cleanup.
