    'twas me. See below. I don't think there's any orange ground tie that you can too wear often. But 3-5 times over SS can work. I still need an orange neat myself.

    Almost picked up this one from Drakes, but haven't yet:

    I also want another check tie. I should pick up this one from Vanda before it runs out, but haven't pulled the trigger on it either:

    Wow, it's really hard to find some nice orange ties that I'd don. Here's two after visiting our usual SF affiliates.

    ^^ I just posted that one! It's nice. I probably should get it.

    @MGoCrimson The wool Calabrese is more of a rust, not true orange.

    I have that Vanda tie, I can not begin to describe how awesome it is. Super light but yet ties an incredible knot....

    that is true rust, baby. i almost think all orange ties should be true rust instead. its just a nicer color imho.

    I think they forgot to pack some of that "awesome bronco power" when they travelled to play in the Super Bowl this year.....

    Apropos orange ties, here's a true orange tie that I like. I picked it up from Drake's sale last summer ....

    Sam Hober Macclesfield 183 - it's a bit vibrant in the real world, but I wear it when the occasion calls.

    Rudals you've been complaining about grey suits and your complexion... but you should really be staying away from beige and orange...

    id rather not have to think about that. once was enough.

    a beaut. my marinella is pretty similar to that, just without the blue dots. see below.

    and while i am at it, here is my hober, and another orange i forgot that i had.

    and i now notice, that quite unintentionally, i wore my 3 orange ties all with the same SC, and twice with the same shirt. and the only reason i wore the orange gingham with a gingham shirt was to double up on gingham for a friday challenge.

    That last one was :inlove:

    I also often notice when I go back an look at old pics that I often subconsciously pick the same kind of ties for particular jackets.
