    ^^ Fair points both.

    I can see why striped ties have that particular association as they're in current use as regimental labels. But no more than they are for schools or cricket clubs. I think I'd avoid wearing one with a blue blazer and grey trousers for looking too much like part of a touring sports team, and if you added in Hush Puppies (as if!), maybe airline ground staff or a security guard. But with something a little different, it's a nice change: I like mine with my soft-shouldered grey DB and suede shoes...very un-military, just fun.

    Depending on how far back you go in a garment's ancestry, it leaves you without more than just that. A navy blazer, for instance.

    well, i guess it would depend on the width of the stripe and what not and what else you are wearing, but i guess the right striped tie might indeed be fine with any combination of jacket and shirt.


    interesting. has nothing to do with the military for me, i just find they dont call to me the way other tis do, and i have a hard time using them right. maybe i just need more practice with them.

    Luciano Barbera wears them all the time if you're looking for some good examples.

    i have seen you post at least one. it almost made me kop some striped ties from NMWA, but i went with neats/medallions instead. i seem to gravitate towards those the most.

    Seeing as the loincloth was a staple item for the Greek hoplite, you should probably forgo underwears as well, just to stay true to your principles...

    But isn't going without "commando"? It's a minefield isn't it? Oops...there we go again...

    But not wearing underwear is an infantry thing.

    For the non-FC/Cyber Monday sale items, is there a new 10% code for December? I am writing my letter to Santa and would like to include this information if possible. Thanks.

    Any clue when the S&C cardigans will be restocked--particularly the navy in small?
