    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thank you. I'd gladly buy a brown one or any other versatile colour. It's just really hard to find one that fits, is versatile (i.e. not celery green or red) and doesn't have any eccentric detail (i.e. flap patch pockets). I might even buy the blue one and wear it all-year long until I find better options. The long term plan is going bespoke but I'd rather try a few things first, so I'll know what I want.

    I'd wear it with a navy or slightly lighter than navy suit, white shirt. White linen PS if you are that way inclined. Keep it simple, nothing silly.

    I tried that combo today but the white shirt and light tie looked very washed out

    I think you just answered your own question. Stop buying so many novelty ties. Light yellow patterned gauze tablecloth is not a good tie material.

    Other than the two above, how do you know how many/what type of ties I own?

    I was wondering that too… yellow? As a summer tie it doesn't strike me at all as problematic. Someone of course will need to write a manifesto about it.

    I'm looking for a nice block stripe tie. Preferably a good fall/winter fabric. Any suggestions?

    Omg if we get a third I'm snap buying them.

    I've never heard them as a brand but I assume nmwa has them because they are good quality. Any info on them?

    Heschung is a brand from France - more specifically,Alsace, hence the Germanic name, and they are known for making solidly made work shoes (and some dress shoes, one pair of which I've owned, and was quite satisfied with the quality of workmanship).
