1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    I was just going through Barneys website, and saw a tie that caught my attention. What do you think of it? I know that Brioni makes amazing clothes, but how do their ties stack up? And, what do you think of the pattern? It would likely go with a white shirt, and either navy or gray suits.

    Nice. Their ties are generally of good quality, on the thick/heavy side.

    Looks very nice and you can get it work with a lot of different suits.

    I don't care for the colors or pattern at all. But I won't be the one wearing it.

    I rather like it. Nice, breezy summer colours IMHO.

    Will that be a problem for a taller guy who likes wearing spread collars, and tends to use a full windsor? Would I still get a big enough knott with a half windsor? Maybe most importantly, is $83 a decent price?

    A tad bit busy for my tastes -- but I have heard from numerous places that Brioni ties are top-notch.

    Brioni ties are indeed very nice. They aren't so thick that I find them a problem with a spread collar and full or half windsor (I'm 6'3", 160 lbs.). I'm not a fan of this particular tie, but only because I'm so thin that I like thicker stripes. And $83 is a good price. Though I don't remember their full retail price (having a senior moment), I seem to recall it's around $150 or above. Edit: Spot-checked the NM website. They ask $165 retail. Guess I can still claim to be in my youth.

    I have dozens of Brioni ties and am most happy with the quality of construction, fabric and style. It's hard to see how one could bo wrong with a Brioni tie.
