    Well...with all the hard work (?) that you guys put in with your suggestions, I managed to get 1 effing tie. My apologies for pulling the trigger so slowly on some really good tie suggestions. I will get to them...eventually. But here is one good damn fine tie that @in stitches recommended. I appreciate all the help. I really need them LOL

    Thoughts on this tie? Too blue? Would this work with Navy SC/Suit?

    oh hell no, not with a navy jacket! [​IMG]
    Let's pick a different colour...then again, every tie that's been suggested is for a navy blue jacket.

    I am really thinking about ordering a bunch from Sam Hober. I love their grenades. May I get a dark grey grenade tie, a hunter green grenade, and a brown neat? Please???

    New to this thread but fairly experienced with Hober ties...David's grenadines are fantastic and the color and weave selection is tremendous. I am far from an the most knowledgeable, but I like the color suggestions you propose above (also like mimo's burgundy suggestion).

    Oh you got that right Pinkpanther. I have 3 Sam Hober grenade ties and they're freaking awesome! I just picked two colours that I didn't like. One is RED and the other is a light grey, which I thut was going to be a dark grey.

    Get. The. Burgundy. Neat. Now.

    Then by all means get a green grenadine and a brown neat. Skip the grey, you're already too grey. Try a rust or similar - Shibumi's is beautiful colour, I believe Hober has something similar, maybe more towards the burnt orange. You can carry that too. But you're drifting back into Noodles-comfort-solids. Start with the neats.

    Alright, alright. I won't shy back into my cave. I'll get those two neats.
    By the way, what's the avg temp where you are, MIMO? It seems pretty darn hot from what I can see in the background.
