    Now that I have a new camera to replace the new camera I destroyed, here's a pic of my favorite paisley:

    Those paisleys aren't kidding around.



    I really like this one, and can think of several different outfits it would look cool in.

    Did you destroy the first one trying to take a picture of that tie? [​IMG]

    I hadn't thought about it, but that was when it threw in the towel ...

    (Of course, that was shortly after it plunged from the bookcase and hit the corner of the desk, cracking the screen. Perhaps I pushed it too far too soon.)

    Perhaps it was squirming to get away from taking the shot. Or Maybe you are just the abusive type... "Plunged" from the book case.. A likely story, More like Flung. [​IMG] Will's abusive comments [​IMG] notwithstanding I happen to like the tie. I particularly like the Blue color of the field but does that same color make it hard to match with anything?.

    I think it jumped ... in despair.

    I'm glad to have the most divisive paisley in the thread. Personally, I like how the red pops. This is a tie that says "I am wearing a freakin' paisley tie."

    I dunno. I'm colorblind, so I just wear it with whatever looks good to me. .

    Here is one by Etro that I recently bought. I like it but haven't worn it yet and can't quite figure out how I will [​IMG]

    D'you own a brown jacket? That would be a good starting point.

    Wow, some of these are awesome. I like the more muted ones. It's a very busy pattern, and having the colours too bright just makes it a bit over the top I think, but man I love Paisley. I feel so old sometimes... Paisley and Herringbone Tweed all the way!

    iammatt -- LOL at the tags... You might get some odd folks visiting the site.

    Am wearing a H&B (no, not HBI) "re-edition" tie with a self-proclaimed "Persian" design woven in -- not paisleys, but fanciful divans. Quite nice.

    Appears to be another tie that the camera refuses to photograph....

    I ran across a men's 'style' book at the thrift store yesterday called Paisley Doesn't Go With Anything. I thought of this thread. Will, did you write that one?
