    Ha ha no no no thats Aussie for actually chasing trout. The place where the wedding was is in the Snowy Mountains here which is home to some of the best trout streams in Australia. Being a die hard fisherman I take any opportunity for it, and I caught 2 great Brown Trout in the 2.5 hours fishing I got in.

    Thanks for the jacket comments anyway, it was this ones first outing.

    @SB It is a linen/silk blend, beautiful fabric. Prob too springy for a wool tie but it's fully lined and not too light and the dark brown works well so it'll get worn in to Autumn for the next few months.

    Response, yes sir, I am! If you lived in Michigan, you, too, would flip that collar to fend off the piercing, frigid wind. "Yeah, ya betcha!" (In da Yooper dialect) :happy:

    Spoo I'm curious- do you have a particular formula for folds, width and backing when you order your ties and/or a preference when buying them OTR?

    They almost always look perfect and uniform.

    Thanks all, for your thumbs up and comments today.


    Theres no particular formula, but after a lot of experimentation, Ive narrowed my selections to a few brands which I find work the best with my aesthetic and perform the best when knotting them. They range from 3 fold construction to unlined 7 folds. A good 90% of my ties are a mix of Drakes, Marinella, Panta, Vanda, Ralph Lauren, and Kiton. 99% are lined, roughly 40% are 6-7 folds. For example, Isaia ties are gorgeous, but just don't sit right with me.

    Was gonna say, sure looks like the one my grandfather passed on to my father and to me. He served in the Navy from 45 to 47, IIRC. I had the government ship me his service records several years back, but I think my father must have them. Anyway:
