    I assume that was just a reflection or something.

    This looks really nice. Can I ask if you think it might be a bit busy? Tri-colored block stripe?

    Thanks.

    It probably leans towards busy. Which is fine as long as you surround it with sedate pieces.

    Busy is not the first word which comes to mind. Or the second. Or third, for that matter.

    Thanks. I would be curious to see it in a fit when it comes. That navy/green block stripe looks fantastic and would pair nicely with brown suits/SCs.

    Returning to the topic at the start of this thread, ties, I’d like to know what people would recommend now as a versatile brown neat.

    Your absolute current favorites, gentlemen? Many thanks.

    Cheers,

    Ac
