    I was always told calling a person Oriental is offensive? Rugs are Oriental, people are Asian, that's what I've always heard growing up.

    I hear it was used as a derogatory term. I actually dont want to be called an Asian. It's too broad. When I say Oriental, I am only referring to Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese...and we all hate each other.

    If you mean the third from the left..yeah, that's the most wearable. I wouldn't say no to it (but nor would I purchase it at anything but a steep discount). The rest are pretty awful. I mean, it makes a nice masthead. But I don't wear mastheads.

    Side note: I love this thread.

    Definite yes to 1, yes to 4, on the fence on 2 and no to 3.

    My qualm with two is that the florets are a little too rectangular (I dislike angles on patterns). With 3, I just don't wear enough gray.

    Also, how much does it cost to ship Cap's to the US? It's 35 euro to Seoul.

    Regarding the rectangular comment, I can live with it. Great green color. Haven't found anything else like it.

    Regarding the navy tie, there's no reason you can't wear something like that with a navy or mid blue jacket/suit. It actually looks like midnight blue so you could definitely wear it with navy.

    It's free with 5 ties. I'll probably add another one. This one is nice too. Need some more green. I'm set on brown, blue, red
