Kind of bummed but my most valuable tie was a Robert Talbott I got brand new $30. I guess the good news is that I get to start a tie collection, this time with a serious emphasis on quality over quantity. I might thrift a few ties down the road. I don't wear ties that much but I'd like to have more than one tie. Most of my shirts are some combination of white and blue. So if you could start over with your tie collection, what are the first two you would buy? I was thinking about the Grenadine as I've seen a lot of them look good in the WAWYT threads but I have no idea if they might be too flashy. My only suit is a 2 button navy suit.
