    Hi folks,
    I need your help finding a similar tie like these.
    The first is from J.crew. Though I like the design, it's just too narrow (2.5''). And I can't really trust their quality.

    The second is by Robert Talbott. The stripes are a little narrower than the ideal. And I worry that stripes in 5 different blue hues just make this tie not quite CBD-friendly. Most of my ties are extremely soporific.

    I saw a similar tie like the RT one (wider stripes in 3 different purple hues) in "Put This On" podcast by Berg & Berg, but it's already discontinued.
    Please let me know if you've seen a similar tie like above. If you think the RT tie is CBD enough, I might just kop it to end this endless search.

    that's a tough one.

    You don't see that style too often. Probably because most guys can't pull it off.

    Drakes has this one, and Sam Hober has this though it seems to be out of stock. This sort of tie does seem quite rare.

    Really? I thought this design is soporific enough that everybody can pull off.

    Thanks for the links. The drake's and the hober have two color stripes on a tie, but I prefer three.

    Since it's hard to find, I might settle to the Talbott one I posted. Is it CBD enough, or it's verging on clown-ish?

    Last time I had a tie with such wide stripes was in 1976. A nice dark blue, med blue, light blue mix by Pierre Cardin.
