    I am not Clags but I'd do the 3rd one from the left, the burgundy. Anyone notice that no one wears yellow on SF? I despise yellow ties.

    I have no idea what I could pair with those and I have some Zegna ties. [​IMG]

    Nooodles, you need to simmer down!

    They are not a tie you need to run out and get for your starter collection but there is atime and place for a yellow tie.

    From left to right: Voxsart, NMWA, Polo, Polo, Henry Carter

    NMWA is rust/orange

    I think for various reasons he is right to avoid them, in part because I don't think they are flattering on Asian men. Stitches has the NMWA tie I think, after a gentlemanly e-duel.

    I personally don't like yellow ties cause that's the color of tie all the thieves politicians of certain Mexican party use.

    It's actually black or very dark navy, it was just the lighting causing shit. I took another with my dslr on auto but that one doesn't look right either. Overexposed maybe.

    (I'm no photographer obviously)

    To narrow it a bit more, just one guy from that political party that whenever he wants he turns Mexico City upside down, he does. But if Noodles likes them, it's ok. If he comes to Mexico, I will still share a nice Messican beer with him. [​IMG]

    This has inspired me to do another tie purge. I think I have more than Spoo sometimes :hide:

    There's going to be some Sam Hober, Marinella, RLBL, Battinstoni etc up for grabs!

    I like Messican beer. It all tastes like Fruit Loops. Think about it next time you're drinking a Tecate. I swear. [​IMG]
