    No, it's cold now. As low as 70F even in the day time, warmer in the direct sun I suppose. And chilly in the evenings - low 60s sometimes. I'm wearing JEANS and a lambswool jumper and boots.

    In the summer it does get up to 120F+. I need some new light suits by then....excuses, eh?

    I need some grey suits in my rotation. They're all effing navy.

    Let's start with the burgundy neat. I might have mentioned it.

    There is a nice simple brown neat on sale at Howard Yount, down from 85 to 55. A tad safer than the already very safe Henry Carter as the pattern is in beige, so the same color family as the tie's ground.

    (I'd link, but I'm crammed on Line 2, smelling somebody's fish breath, using SF mobile. Who eats fish for breakfast?!)

    What is wrong with a light grey grenadine? Seems to be a perfect pairing with a navy suit and white shirt.

    I think this looks a bit silver/light greyish. This here is Sam Hober 6 fold grenade

    I like this grey much better. This here is Tom Ford (I hate Tom Ford)

    I am noticing that my ID is becoming more and more construed...first it was Roodals, Noodals, and now Radials. LML

    Agree with this. And, you know me Archibaldleach, I don't see anything wrong with the RED either. But that is just me...:embar:

    Doodals you need to stop beating around the bush and make some decisions, my good sir. :stirpot:

    I can't tell you how much time I've wasted looking at ties on the internet on my own. I wish I could get those hours back.
