    As you push the SF boundaries pretty successfully about three times per week, I guess I'm just too used to your easy accommodation of "loud" within "tasteful".

    +1

    And his compositions of course. He's some banana.

    What else am I supposed to do on a lazy Friday afternoon apart from read & post to SF? [​IMG]

    Some would say I've simply gone bananas, but I won't quibble...!

    Quote:Thanks for the comments. Click on my first pic for a larger image - that tie is a riot of pink and grey paisley. Not the most bold tie here, but I think it takes at least one decisive stride into the bold zone. SB - I figured the big knot would get noticed by somebody. stitchy and are RDiaz early contenders for my vote - and not because they likewise chose navy-and-greys to frame their bold ties. Sharp looks gents.

    It's completely overcast today, so my crappy pictures reflect that. Jacket is navy, shirt stripes are mid blue, tie is, well......

    as expected/predicted, Holdfast delivers. BUT I must say that as things stand, Donuts is going to get my vote :)

    Watch out, suckas! Things went more easily than I expected, and I decided to go in to the office.

    Man, that's an insane tie. And I'm glad to see you're in good fettle.
