Sure, you described a distinct difference in the two ties as "nominal," after you were politely corrected in a helpful post. It certainly reads passive aggressive. If I've mischaracterized your intent, my apologies. Wow. "Nominal" as in "related to naming" (of knits versus weaves) not "in name only" (as in calling him weird for pointing that out). How you came up with passive-aggressive after my prompt subsequent response of "If they don't qualify, my mistake" is beyond me, but apology accepted. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2778/...cb75c428_b.jpg I like the colours but the square bottom + horizontal lines don't do it for me.
