    Shame on me!
    The neat is back in my hands. Gone is that rust...although I still like it...errr...I hate it.

    Hmmm...my fiance is a psychiatrist so I think I will bring this up with her. But what if she leaves me? omg! Then I can tap into my engagement ring fund and go shopping! [​IMG]. j/k

    It's weird how all the colors that I like are...not appropriate to be incorporated into my navy CBD look.

    Nothing wrong with rust color (the one you returned), it was more the pattern I think. Mesh and florets that weakly wimpered.

    Looking at the three you have left and rightly disown, I am reminded of the monstrosities one now sees at Nordstroms, Saks and such places. Looking at news anchors, talk show hosts, I see that there is certainly an aesthetic that has infiltrated the populace about what makes a good tie, one that is certainly as puzzling as it is pervasive.

    To avoid making such mistakes:

    Is it multipattern? If yes, don't buy.
    Does it have a sheen? If yes, don't buy.

    It's alright. I'm making a tie buying flowchart later.

    Betel, if you can don on those with class then YES, for free. But I ain't paying for shipping so...(insert any politically incorrect joke) and it will get to you.

    I don't have the rights nor the authority to speak on ties but I like all except that green one that looks like it is growing mold all over the tie.

    @Claghorn

    I don't think I'd wear a single one of the ties on the masthead

    Maybe the blue and red one, maybe, but that's it. What about you?
