    Yea I lurked and left a while ago, but have returned due to a combination of graduating from b-school and needing to flesh out my business wardrobe - and really, really, really digging that tie.

    Well, first, that is a beautiful tie. Absolutely worth tracking down. But I also think that tracking it down it going to be pretty difficult, if not bordering on impossible. I'll look around. But be willing to accept a few alternatives that come close. I can't think of a better neat than a brown base with blue florets.

    Agreed.

    Henry Carter has one a bit closer to the Drake's.

    No Man Walks Alone has a brown Bigi neat with blue florets in it. Also a viable alternative.

    From ties to suits to shoes to exercise to nutrition and now back to ties, this thread has come full circle.
