IMHO The Tie Bar ties are pretty much disposable. I would spend your money on four or five proper ties.
i am new to this site. please elaborate on what you mean by 'proper' ties... specific brands?
Most posters here are going to eulogize brands like Brooks Brothers, Drakes of London, and basically anything made by an obscure (preferably English) tailor. My ties (all four of them!) are just mall-bought Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers. I try to avoid buying anything for retail price, though. At the moment, RL is running its Final Sale and Brooks Brothers has some vaguely beneficial discount, viewable on their respective websites if you're interested.
OP, have you experienced any tie from them? Are you sure that they are of good quality? I have no experience from them, but I would refrain myself buying cheap things in bulk. There are reasons why they are cheap.
12 ties for $15 each . . . $180 in total. That's not too shabby.
I would reconsider, if nothing else your choices. Two orange?I have a black and white houndstooth tie (bigger pattern than the one you chose, but still) and can't wear it with anything, looks too much like a wedding tie to me.

To add to my previous post: their ties are rather thin and the fabric is poor. They are 3.75" wide. You have a skinny tie there as well which I think is well below 3". I can't imagine anyone who would be comfortable with ties of that large of a range. I don't wear anything above 3.5" or below 3". If you are set on them, however, the orange, blues and reds (including the striped tie) would go with a light blue shirt. The reds, blues and greys would go with a pink shirt. The violet and "erudite" orange are ugly and less versatile, and you have too many reds. These are better options, in my opinion.
