    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.

    Wearing large scale yellow paisley. The boldest tie I own. It was a gift and it has never been worn until today (which is probably in the spirit of the Friday Challenges--to push some of us outside our comfort zones)

    I don't have a bold tie. I don't even have a patterned tie. I do have a tie with a bold bar tack:

    NOBD, you rebel you.

    Also, have you been messing with my tripod? Something seems off with it of late.

    So it's pink...bold? Nah. Didn't Org say patterns were compulsory? I think TTO is on the right track (no surprise). And I'm both alarmed and intrigued to wonder what Holdfast might consider to be pushing the boundaries.

    I have a feeling many of us will be breaking out "gift ties" for this one.

    A pink cashmere Attolini may not be the boldest tie imaginable, but it has a bold historical SF pedigree.
