I finally found some pictures of the gingham multicolor tie in action courtesy of fb. Bit boring context but the colors are done justice and nothing but compliments about the tie. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything with the shoes too. They're very well worn brown florsheim imperial longwings (ebay special). My girlfriend got me the tie for my birthday and I cannot thank Epaulet enough for your impressive service even on such a small item. The handwritten note was a very nice touch that says a lot about how you run your business and who you are and she still talks about that when she sees the tie.
