    I'd be much more excited, if only they made more ties in reasonable widths!

    Some nice stuff there, particularly the pocket squares. I also very much like the bicolor grenadines. I can't help feeling there could have been more bowties, though... Also, no tussah this season, apparently. Off-topic, perhaps, but I was also hoping they'd bring back the woven Oxford university ties, given that I've earned the right to wear one.

    Good to see some ties in khaki - I like that dark khaki striped grenadine. I'm happy to see they've bumped up the raw silk ties to 8cm. I have a 7cm one which feels too narrow. On the other hand, I like madder ties in narrower widths.
