    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.

    JL, I'd say you did pretty good for RTW.

    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.

    Murl & Clags (sounds like it could be a bluegrass band),

    Thanks for the kind words and positive feedback, fellas.

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