Irish Poplin vs. Mogador vs. 100 percent Silk Ties

I am currently in the process of upgrading/redoing my business wardrobe. When it comes to ties I'm pretty basic. I like various solids and then I like stripes and that is it for my business wardrobe (I have a wider selection for non-business). Because I don't have a lot variety in patterns and design, I look for variety in other ways. For example, for my solid ties I have grenadine fina, grossa, twill, oxford weave etc. Looking at stripes, I'm considering adding some Irish Poplin and Mogador. I have never owned either and am wondering what are the practical differences between the two, and how they compare to 100 percent silk. I understand that Irish Poplin is silk and wool, and Mogador is cotton and silk, and I have read that both have a more matte appearance than 100 percent silk, which makes sense and I generally prefer a more matte appearance. What other differences are there? What else can be said about them? Do they tie as good a knot as a good 100 percent silk tie?

I'd contact Sam Hober on his website, he would know for sure and be able to answer these questions.

Thank you I'll ask him and also repost on the Sam Hober thread on this forum. Also, in case someone sees this thread and knows, do certain colors work better with any of these fabrics?
