    Interesting thread as I have been on somewhat of a paisley buying spree lately. I hadn't owned one in years and bought 3-4 recently, including this Battistoni from chorse (I'll take pics of the others tomorrow).

    Here is a vintage Dior tie I inherited from my grandfather:

    I like the Battistoni as much as I dislike the Dior.
    I can't decide if I dislike the Dior even more than the Talbott tie on this same page [​IMG]

    I love the H&B but I never wear because it's 4"+. I need to send it to Tiecrafters and have it narrowed.

    I purchased the G&H when I did a summer study in England in college. It's really more of a souvenir of the trip. I don't remember the last time I wore it.

    I don't have many paisleys at all.

    Funny, because I thought I had quite a lot. Going through my ties, it seems I have a ridiculous number of flower-based or other organic designs, which I suspect I use in a similar context to the way others use paisleys.

    Still, the small number of paisleys I have:

    Ben Sherman, Henry Poole, RL Polo, Gianfranco Ferre

    The Ferre was a free gift (I'm not sure gift is quite the right word for it), not a purchase! [​IMG]

    I wear just one paisley necktie, an older gummed silk.

    Perhaps because I love paisley pocket squares but wouldn't wear them with a paisley necktie.

    I also vastly prefer paisly squares to ties.

    You could try thinking about it as a pearl necklace.

    Me too. The paisley patterns can be interesting when folded as a square, but as a tie the patterns just look like a bunch of bacteria to me.
