    Why care about versatility when you have 20+ ties already, much less 20+ brown ones?

    I've not seen them in the wild before except one on Pingson. Pingson is a tall guy, so maybe that contributes to my perception, but the knot seemed a bit tiny. Anyone with experience? Some of the patterned grenadines area quite nice.

    I am leaning slightly towards the woolly one myself . They make some excellent ties btw and they have increased the width by a cm this season. Very nice people to deal with too

    James Hook lobster rolls are off the charts!

    Lobster rolls are awesome. I eat a lot of them when back in Boston.

    I'll give DC crab, but lobster is better in New England.

    Yeah, my statement was tongue in cheek. I think James Hook's roll has twice as much lobster meat as an average roll you can get in DC. Can't get a decent cannoli around here either.
