Crewneck sweaters and ties? OCBDs and ties?

Do you do either of these? Crewneck seems pointless, and I must confess a tie with a button-down collar just looks too busy to me.

I often sport crew neck and tie. The trick is to pull the tie out a bit so it doesn't get hidden. Wear OCBD's with knit ties.

i try not to do the crewneck w/ tie, because it's a little too cramped up top. However, I have done it before.

A tie with a button down is solid...not too busy at all.

I've yet to be fully convinced by crewnecks with ties, but have no problem with button downs and ties.
