I should have been more specific. My question is - is it actually of any use outside of a couple limited applications?
I have 3 solid black ties … a grossa, fina and a silk knit. I don't wear them all the time, but I do use them a fair amount especially in the fall/winter. I think it's limited if your wardrobe or tastes don't support them. I like them with ocbd's, particularly white, but blue can be good too. Aside from monochromatic looks (which I do a lot), I like them with cardigans in burgundy and green … black with reds go particularly well IMO. If you have bold patterned jackets that have a gray in them, a black tie can work well to add some contrast without introducing more color. It can also be a good balance for fits using charcoal trousers. Anyhoo, that's kinda how I think of using them in my wardrobe.

All good points. Thanks for the thoughtful reply.

I do like black grenadine as a tie. I'm just trying to find my own way to use one in my wardrobe. I think it might make for a good Friday challenge.

This afternoon, I am taking one of my former contractor employees out for his departure/retirement lunch, and therefore wanted to look as if I could pay the check (we're going to the Palm Tribeca - convenient to my office). I normally take drawing class this evening, but thought better of it arriving dressed as I am, only to get charcoal dust on my suit.

I am off to an early (7:00 PM curtain) theatrical performance this evening, and am taking advantage of the relatively mild and dry day with today's attire.

Included in this posting are two "lifestyle" photos from my recent visit to (pre-flood) Venice - one from the ballroom of the Ca' Rezzonico, the museum of 18th century Venice, a grand Baroque palazzo (me in half length), and the other from the "portego" (the large central hallway) of our hotel in Venice, a remodeled 15th century palazzo, with many later additions.

Shirt, tie & braces - Brooks Brothers
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg, London
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Crockett & Jones, model name Cobham

Soooo much to like, fabric, color and texture-wise but I really find those lapels, with the points virtually behind your ears truly awful. Sorry for the negative comment...
