    Interesting. Guess, I'll go back to the tie store and have a second look at something that would be of a better fit for my navy blue & white/pale blue shirts.
    I am keeping the burgundy then.

    no i am not recommending gray. im just saying it can be good if you are a pro. but brown, green and burgundy are far more versatile and easy to use well. start with that. apologies for the detour.

    :)

    IT'S FINALLY HERE!!! (Actually, that was pretty quick considering UPS ground standard). It was the last one that they had in stock. Very glad.

    On my question about neats and odd jackets earlier, see the good taste thread where amazingly, some of the original principals (Manton, Foo) have come back to talk about this.

    2 nice ties with help from this thread. Thank you Stitchie for recommending that tie and HF for seconding it.
