    These were given to me. Thus far, I've been wearing them exclusively with a solid white oxford and khakis. Any other suggestions so I can get more use out of them? Thanks!!

    I'd keep ties one and three and wear with a blue or gray suit and throw the other ties away.

    Ties 2 and 6 could probalby be used casually with the right linen suit or jacket.
    Ties 4 and 5 look from the 70's (in a bad way) and are really hard to pair... store them away and maybe in 10 or 20 years they can be used again.

    All except #3 seem dated to me, but I really do like #3 quite a bit.

    Definitely pair this with some grey and/or blue. If you're only in white/khaki/brown it can seem a bit washed out. Better to add another color to the mix.

    Always a chance for some serious utilization at retro theme party. Otherwise, I'd ditch everyone except #3 as well

    Tried it, doesn't work. Country looking tie with CBD looking outfit.
    blue shirt/ brown tweed jacket.
    Doesn't work either. Country overkill.
