    Clagster what do u think of this one? It didn't jump out at me at first but I've really warmed to it. Shapes aren't the best, but the colors are great

    And it's royal blue, so Noodles won't go psycho if he sees this :D

    That's beautiful. I would be reluctant to wear it with a solid light blue shirt (as the florets, sharing that same color, would give the impression of a tie with holes), but with anything else, yeah. Definitely something I'd love to own.

    Rudals just needs to focus on non-navy ties due to his love of navy suits. He does need a proper navy tie at some point, something with a really dry hand.

    Something like that.

    cr@p. I held onto that one until last week and just returned it because I wasn't feeling it.

    That's a perfectly good reason to let it go, even if Clags likes it. You have to wear it after all.

    The shibumi is excellent. I have it and I would highly recommend it. It goes great with navy.

    Also, I like it when some portion of the small flowers are close to the same color as my shirt. I like when they pick up on each other like that.

    Absolutely. That, I think, is the best. But when it's ALL of the flowers... Still, come to think of it, my green HC neat has blue flowers and looked fine with a blue shirt.
