    No worries, I'm very conservative but Ive never been a fan of paisley and medallion print ties. I prefer solids and stripes.

    Here's a couple ties that I purchased recently.

    Thanks for posting the pics. I want to see how big a knot this one makes.

    Igents... bitter chocolate or dark chocolate?

    I am leaning towards bitter choc, but I am worried it is not brown enough...

    The bitter chocolate is plenty brown. IRL, it is a bit darker than on the website. It's a great choice.

    i agree, I have some unlined six-fold cashmere ties and it feels like I'm handling a giant eel when I use them. Probably best to have less thickness.
