    I like many paisley patterns, but not all of them.

    This is one of my favourite ties, from Mountain & Sackett.

    OP,
    -Marry that salesgirl if you can since you both like paisley.
    -Sorry to read about your father (rest his soul)
    -I like paisley ties too.
    -Agreed, that when wearing paisley ties, match them with a quiet shirt and suit or jacket.


    Thank you!

    I always wondered how the paisley pattern was first discovered.

    Persian, if I remember correctly.

    I love paisley and have legions of paisley ties, many with striking contrast (dark blues with yellow ect.)

    I recently scored 2 Brioni gold thread (38% oro) paisley ties at a Nieman Marcus Last Call in Miami. The sales girl was a really striking (of the super pretty variety) petite latina as well - but alas I am already married.

    There is a thread at AskAndy with lots of paisley tie photos

    I find the paisley prints I usually see, such as the tie posted above, to be overly bombastic in repetition and colours

    That said, the relatively more relaxed prints that one can find at RLPL or Hackett tend to interest me. And one of my sock pairs does feature an "outline" version of paisley that I quite like

    When I "paste away", bury me in this:

    Ha!

    I was the seller.

    This was a 70s Polo, in wool challis.

    I am, however, now selling its HK bespoke sibling in silk or something silky:

    No popes here! [​IMG]

    There's a Monty Python episode in which Eric Idle is in a Harrod's-like department store and is repeatedly confused with a mysterious "Micheal Ellis"...during his wandrings through the mensware department, he walks by table displaying ties and a sign reading "The Paisley Counter", and next to it is Graham Chapman ranting in a Northern Irish accent about the Catholics.

    Those socks are so gorgeous I'm going to add them to the shopping section of my e-zine for men. Understated in tone, yet smashing in character!
