    That blue panta is nice! As was the burnt orange one earlier. Great thread for pics of ties.

    What's the dealio with the idea behind this thread?

    Isn't pretty much any tie going to look good with a solid navy or grey soot? (Assuming it's a simple pattern like a dot/repp stripe/neat pattern and of suitable width) Am I missed something here? Or is this more of a showcase of favorite ties from SF approved makers that fit within that criteria?

    I think the hunter green pindot will be excellent. I've updated my shopping cart per your feedback. I am here to listen for I know not what I am doing...yet.

    It really spawned (hope that's a word) out of this one debacle post a horrific looking tie. If you look at the original post, it states the reason why this thread was created.

    It was all started by this hideous tie.

    I still like the Wu green of the things I've seen on the last page for you (there was a burnt orange Panta that was good too)...but I digress. Must flip back to page 1 and work slowly through the pics.

    i like those. still not sure about orgasmic burgundy maybe you should really buy one and then post it so i can see what you guys say.

    Only one thing: aren't the green and brown to similar in pattern? maybe one in a different pattern? i'm also not sure on the burgundy pattern
