Looking for a tie that looks like this

I have attached two images to this post. The first is a tie that I have that is black on black, and is one that I really like.

I have found that the inside of the tie is just a fantastic pattern for a whole different set of situations / environments. It is a white background bright polka dot pattern. I'm trying to find a tie that has the main part of the tie that looks like the lining of the one I have.

I have done a bunch of searches for bright polka dotted ties and couldn't find anything remotely close. I'm hoping that one of you have come across something that would point me in the right direction.

Interesting recommendation to look at Ted Baker.

The inside of the tie says "City of London" and the tag by the small end says WPL#2831, Made in USA.

Searching for WPL#2831 (I figured that finding the tie I have was a pretty good start), the first result being Ted Baker's site.

Nothing on his site looks remotely like it (or the polka dotted one), I figured I'd look online for his older ties but still nothing.

After more generic searching I came across:
http://www.beautiesltd.com/product/w..._source=pronto

which is as close as I've gotten so far, but not correct.

"Business in the front, party in the back" tie?
Paul Smith seems another alternative.

look for Duchamp, it's exactly the type of style you want. Some consider the brand to be loud and tacky but Duchamp commands a premium.

Was just going to say the exact same thing. Duchamp London ties are flashy and fun. I personally love some of them, but doubt I would ever have occasion to wear one and so have never splurged on one.

I have a City of London belt which IIRC was purchased at either Century21, Daffy's or SYMS. Might try searching at those stores.

I'm going to say Duchamp, Paul Smith, maybe Etro though probably not, and check some other random guys like Richard James, Robert Graham, etc
