    Since you have #2 and plan on acquiring #1, would you say they're as fuzzy as they look in the pictures? They look like fuzzy flannel.
    Also, would you say there's a place for a dark grey/charcoal wool tie like #1 where a light grey or navy wool tie isn't better suited?
    Thanks for your input.

    Wear in good health! Looking forward to see it in action =)

    Yes, it is. Actually, I believe it might be made from VBC flannel. I have a pair of VBC flannel trousers which look and feel exactly the same.

    Since I wear blue jackets/suits very often I get a lot of use out of all sorts of grey ties. I'm planning to wear the darker one mostly with lighter than navy jackets, like in this picture (courtesy of B&Tailor, iirc), for example:

    Funny thing is, I have a pair of VBC flannel trousers too, and the tie looks just like my trousers, hence my question. Thank you for confirming it.

    Picture and matching looks great, btw. I can see why you want the darker one given your wardrobe.

    3fold unlined, which I think is best given the substantial cloth. It's also what Patrizio recommends.
