    doesn't the fabric look different? I'm pretty sure Efron's is not satin.

    Satin is much more formal than twill weave. High sheen

    yeah, i'm having a lot of trouble finding a shiny pin-dot like his in 2.75 or narrower.

    Alfred Dunhill ties have a good, slightly-narrow width. There's no pindot on their website, but if you have a store/stockist near you, I would recommend having a look if you don't like your ties too fat.

    Brooks Brothers do a similar-looking one that's 2 7/8".

    You have got a good eye, sir.
    The most similar one i've found so far is this one:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/DOLCE-GABBANA-RP...#ht_2646wt_905

    It's more narrow and the pattern is more busy, but I could see in some photos that efron's tie was not a simple pin dot, the dots are on a faintly checkered background.

    Don't buy it. It will cause scandalous nude pictures of the woman you're with to end up all over the web.

    It looks like it the same one!!!

    However, the size is different so I guess it is a dealbreaker.
