    Derek,

    Thanks for posting up so quickly!

    For the strength of the box, I think the two Navy ties on the right would be best, behind those two, the dark green pindot or the brown stripe repp tie.

    If you have any other Navy tie options, post 'em, so we can see what you are working with.

    Regarding the four ties you picked. Those are, in my opinion, the cream of the box. I was hoping for a crack at the wool navy/brown one you posted on the left and / or the drakes blue and white. Hope that at least one of those make it to me (i'm next).

    If you opt for both of those, definitely put in higher end ties than you posted as options (remember, no light greens).

    you know me well, my friend.

    I suggested for Derek to take the three ties he liked (leaving the wool sammy) for the two navy ties, the green pindot and the brown repp.

    He's also snagging two pocket squares. Derek mentioned he'd put up a better shot of the squares he is planning to include.

    Seems like a fair swap. He'll ship out the box after the holiday.

    Thanks Derek!

    I have to add....When i got the box, there was a really nice envelope inside with my name on it...really fancy stationary. I opened the envelope...and a very nice typed note was written to me...

    I was sad to see it go, but for taking the YHNT i felt i had to pony up.

    TD will be glad to take it, as well he should.
