    Alright if you don't know what this is about, you don't spend enough time on WAYWRN.

    Interested parties (off the top of my head)
    @in stitches
    @Rudals
    @sugarbutch
    @mimo
    @Cleav
    @aravenel

    Alright, we know Rudals works in an UCBD/CBD environment. He wears a lot of navy suits, though occasionally wears gray. Most of his shirts are solid, white or blue, though he has at least one micropattern and two blue pinstriped shirts. ITT, we post ties we think that Rudals needs to buy. Keep in mind, he probably has enough navies.

    Since Rudals harkens from the Orient, I'm going Far Eastside with my recs:

    From the Wang

    From the Wu

    Enjoy Fiddler on the Roof

    (I actually sang some Topol in the shower yesterday. It's a wonderful movie)

    Some neat recommendations:

    Sam Hober

    (perhaps too rough for most of Noodles' suits)

    Noodles Roooodals, get this tie and get into the Wu Tie Clan! It's awesome!

    I have one tie from Conrad Wu that is gray that I would love to wear with a navy suit but I don't have navy suits. But I just checked and it's no longer available.

    Advice #1 - do not buy the ties in wolf of wall street.

    More tomorrow. :)

    I'm in on this, but I would also like to see what he can find on his own. Some homework maybe? Browse the following AV sites and post the ties you would consider buying (just a recommendation):

    No Man Walks Alone
    Sam Hober
    Panta
    Malford of London
    Howard Yount
    Henry Carter
    Conrad Wu
    Exquisite Trimmings
    Vanda

    I would also list Yellow Hook, but I think Rob's ties are geared much more towards people with freedom in their work attire...not your case from what I understand.

    Step to it, Noodles!

    Plenty of good steers above, let's see what you can pull out. My top recommendation to you: burgundy is the best friend of both navy and grey, and the darker the better. Brown, green, burnt orange, mustard, all good.

    Stripes: 0/3
    ET: 1.5/3 (the green shantung is a great tie, but won't work for your city look. The green grenadine is a solid...aha...choice)
    Vanda: 3/3

    In my iPhone. I'll explain scores later.
