    Yeah, didn't realize how close the jacket and tie weaves were until I took the pic, agree that they aren't kosher together. :embar:

    I saw that Claghorn re-posted his black/camel herringbone which is simply awesome (both the tie and his fit). I will post a pic of mine when I wear it next week. I will try and pair it better than I did with the burgundy. :D

    Is that a three-fold?

    Today's Hober is a repeat and is the geometric pattern #21 (3-fold construction).

    Question for everyone: how do you store your ties? I'm looking for a better way to store mine without adding an expensive organization system. I've checked google and pinterest but nothing seems to fit what I'm looking for. Was considering some sort of ornament storage solution but I'm concerned with keeping the ties rolled for so long. Would love some suggestions!

    TIA.

    Rolled, like this:

    http://www.houzz.com/tie-cubbie

    My unit was custom made and looks very similar to the unit 3 pictures down (says "telluride" to the right). However, my unit sits in my master closet, not the laundry room. It contains 168 cubbies and can go 2-deep if needed - it literally goes from floor to ceiling. I typically keep my collection around 168 as I like to see them all - for selection purposes - each morning as I get dressed.

    Before I had this unit, I was finding that various ties would go unworn for long periods of time (out of sight, out of mind .....).

    Thanks, sftg! I saw this post in my searching and would love to have something similar. I share the same attitude that I want to see the ties for selection instead of having to fumble around with my current tie hanger. Ideally I'd like to have a drawer similar to what is shown in that same post but would need to purchase an organization system to get it. I've told the wife I want something installed in my closet (we both have separate walk-ins) but I haven't gotten around to looking for any.

    Thanks again for the recco!

    I find that a series of shallow drawers works well. Enough to get one layer and two columns (left/right). This way one drawer can be "casual," (wool, linen, whatever), one can be "dress" (foulard, silk, etc.) and customize further as necessary.

    The rolling up thing is weird to me. In my mind's eye, the ideal setup involves a series of sliding panes where several rows can hang at arms length and slide open to be revealed. This would require considerable horizontal width (at least double one pane). And the occasional dusting between the back layers, maybe. The pegs are not pegs as such but wide rings you can pass the tie through, so it faces outward.

    I also use a cedar tie hanger. Works great, and no need to purchase drawers or call in a contractor.

    Just received this on Friday. Not a pic of me wearing it but hopefully gives you an idea. The color in the pic is pretty close to IRL. The brown is dark but it is definitely brown. Also there is a subtle line of red that runs through the darker diagonal (the pic doesn't show it well). Personally I can't wait to wear it, it is a lovely tie.

    That's pretty sweet. I was worried the striping effect would be too strong, but that's nice and subtle.

    Agreed. As I look at it a bit more, the brown and white mix to make a somewhat coppery look. As you state, it is nice and subtle.

    Bloody hell. As if I needed more evidence of how much I want this tie. Aaaannd... it's in the cart.

    ^ Added to wish list. Currently planning to save the shopping spree for when there's only fabric for a few left in stock.

    Yeah, that's the biggest problem for most people participating in this thread, we're simply too rational when it comes to ties.
