    I really like both patterns of the tie. I mainly asked because of the viscose material, not familiar with it and doesn't sound appealing compared to say 100% wool/silk.

    But again, the patterns are spot on. Love the deep blue, and the strip is subtle enough imo

    Will think about it

    How old are you and what's your body type?

    More than you ever wanted to know about viscose (rayon): http://www.swicofil.com/viscose.html

    Of particular note is the "Fiber Properties overview" section. Keep away from fire!

    A *bit*? I'm a touch taller, same weight, 31" waist. I can't recommend a suit from those brands, I'm not sure for the fuller cut.

    Relatively slim. Not as slim as Rugby. Roughly the same in the chest but roomier at the waist by 1-2" at least. I'm a 39R drop 8; both Rugby and RL custom fit cause me problems with button straining at the chest and both tend to pillow at the waist, RL more so. Quality is better than Rugby's though. You linked to a dress shirt (or at least as dressy as an button-down collar can be), but for casual shirts check this guy's store, he always has a bunch of custom fits floating around half off. http://myworld.ebay.com/saveonnamebrands/&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2754

    Depends on the business environment. What country? What industry? What company? What position? (don't answer the second to last one, but you get the idea)

    USA, forbes 100 insurance company, entry admin/finance position. im thinking it might be just a bit too casual.

    ties and trouser are necessary for work. no khakis.

    Too casual for that environment. Maybe try a grenadine if you're looking for a similar texture?

    This.

    I would play it safe the first week, then start adding more "controversial" items in as you go/get a feel for the environment. (I would go with silk ties, navy blue maybe with pindots?Or even solid colours.) You may find knit ties are fine, who knows.
