    i think id like it better if all the stripes were single red bars with white borders, not the alternating single and double red bars, but it is very nice. i am considering it myself. :)

    Light blue shirts and blue jackets are probably the best choices for rust / orange ties, but I'm not sure I'd call them shitty colors. Probably colors you shouldn't get until you already have around 20 ties, but they definitely can look nice in the right shade. The right shade of rust can also work with a brown tweed jacket IMO. Orange does tend to be pretty loud (IMO louder than pink which is a pretty accepted color for ties and thus stands out less).

    For those not of the tallish persuasion, note that LE knits are rather long. Construction is good, and I like their orange (not currently available):

    So is it your eyes or your brain which is broken? :D

    An interesting point there, and one grounded in human physiology. The three so-called "primary" colours are primary because they correspond to the points on the visible light spectrum which maximally stimulate the three different colour receptors or "cones" in the human retina.

    All perceptible colours are simply mixtures of these three "primary" colours in unique proportions. This is necessarily so because of the physiology. What this also means is that all colours are either primary, secondary (mixtures of two primaries) or tertiary (mixtures of three) - there can be no such thing as a quaternary colour, at least, not for a human.

    Tertiary colours tend to be more pleasing to the eye because they evoke a more complex set of cortical responses than primaries do. (Please note that the retina is considered, physiologically, to be part of the visual cortex of the brain - on a stalk, as it were, but still part of the brain's surface.) The auditory analogy would be the different between a single note played as a sine wave, or played by an oboe. One is a pure tone which stimulates only a single narrow point on the organ of Corti within the cochlea; the other, while still perceived as a single note, is in fact stimulating many points on the organ of Corti, as in reality it consists of many overlapping tones of different frequencies.

    I see the so-called "colour wheel" quoted very often here but I tend to discount it as misleading, as it does not correspond in any way to the facts of human visual-perception physiology or the physics of light. It seems to me that colours do not fit onto a "wheel" any more than the visible band of electromagnetic radiation, or the ultra-complex arrangement of neurons in the human visual cortex, fit onto "wheels".

    It's all very fascinating stuff when you delve into it a bit deeper.

    Most excellent Cox.

    Please note that I am at the point in my tie wardrobe where it is appropriate to add a true orange.
