    I found this while visiting my parents' house. Daddy Noodles had shelved it because he didnt want it. Color is distorted by direct sunlight.

    Dear JRD,

    Dear Roodles,

    You have a strange definition of "gloomy." I don't know how any of those ties qualify as gloomy. Staid, yes. Gloomy, no. (Especially the Blackwatch regimental - not gloomy)

    Also, who made it a rule that a dark suit must have a tie that is not a "dark" color? Much to learn, young Padawan. :D

    Still deciding which brown to get, and what widths I want.

    Dude, everyone of those ties would look amazing with a navy suit and some variation of a blue shirt.

    Here's the brown neat tie I sold off. It was too light for my tastes, actually. Pictured in middle. Too bronze-brown

    I find neats to be incredibly versatile. They look great with both a soot and a SC/pents

    WTF? A skinny? I sincerely hope you're joking. :D

    More like deciding how between a 3.25, a 3.35, or a 3.5, and how much taper up the narrow end of the tie. And whether to go lined or unlined.
