    Wait Rudals. Let the other two come in and wear them. Or if you must, just one of the two grenadines, perhaps the right since you are getting the Wu green neat.

    I love grenadine ties...but if I order that one, then I'll have three including the one below. I don't need that many greens and the one below is solid. The Capelli brown is SOLID. I wonder how versatile the burgundy solid will be though.

    I think burgundy and (dark) green solid grenadines are both versatile and I think burgundy looks better over a light blue shirt so that one gets the edge, in my opinion.

    You need a burgundy neat, do you not? Regardless, you do NOT need another solid right now. Scroll back to mimo's suggestion and figure out which burgundy neat he recommended. Go with that. That said the one you have just posted looks nice in my eye.

    Darn it Rudals...I'm for voting that you stop buying ties. Save for your fiance. Use this list as establishing your wish list in ranked order (I am). If you are smacking your head against the wall, cancel one or two of those orders. Really, if you've got 5 or so ties you can wear, that will do.

    Nah...I'll be fine. I think they were only about $500 in total. I'll just not eat out here on out.
