    Beppe wants to know: Do you have the confidence to wear a BOLD tie? Do you have the ability to pull it off? The challenge is to see how bold a necktie you can tastefully incorporate into your fit. Bright colors and bold patterns are encouraged. Solids are out, and soporifics will get you no points.
    Fit pics taken this week are fair game. Deadline for submissions is Saturday morning, Eastern US time, whenever I get around to posting a poll.​

    Bold? Yes. Tasteful? Hmmm.

    Fierce challenge, Orge, good choice!

    Sure there are, but I registered in the NPC for this month, so I can't buy one just for the challenge. [​IMG]

    Sure they do! However, I will say that bold bow ties are easier to pull off because they're so much smaller. So you can still be very well dressed with a bold bow tie, but it won't be as impressive as a tastefully worn bold FIH.

    Completely understood, and agreed. Most of my neckties are more pB than Beppe though, so I felt the need to inquire.

    i think a bold and shiny tie, is the hardest to do. i have some bold ties, but i dont think any of them are shiny. maybe ill pick up a steffano ricci just for the occasion.
