    Did you try Brooks Brothers? They might have what you are looking for. For a yellow tie, try Drakes print ties, Capelli and Ralph Lauren.

    These two BB ties are close, but I want yellow, not gold:

    Drakes, Hober, RL, Ben Silver, and O'Connell's have all let me down, too.

    No, but why not? Don't you think yellow with some thin black and white stripes would look boss with a charcoal suit?

    Well maybe. I think the success rate of yellow ties is quite low. I can imagine many (just about any?) other colours look 'bosser' with charcoal. Could be a personal dislike of mine though, and I'm not exactly a tie pro either, so feel free to disregard my comment.

    I really think of it as a summery color, and best with light colored suits.

    I hope TB doesnt mind me using his thread, I wanted to get some SF op about my ties. I want to thin them out a bit. So, which ones to keep and which ones to let go. General thoughts welcome as well ... Lot I - Blue Group [​IMG]

    ^^ Ok thanks for your comments, appreciate it.

    The green one on the left is Purdey wool (not cashmere as per my recollection)

    Blue: toss the first on the left
    Brown: toss the first and the third
    Purple: maybe toss the first; it's not a bad tie, but just not my style and not very versatile; could also see a cogent argument for tossing the third
    Green: keep both; toss the one on the right if you have to, but if you do, let me have it
