    I'm just curious as to what everyone thinks of this tie. And see if you can guess the brand! I had to downsize the pic quite a bit so the quality isn't so hot.

    Couldn't begin to venture a guess on the maker, but I'm not crazy about it, floral ties being some of my least favorite.

    I like the design, hard to tell on the quality. I'm going to randomly guess Ferragamo.

    I really like that tie, though i really like floral and earth-based patterns. I'd guess Richard James or Paul Smith.

    It's a Brioni. Every woman in my office loved it, and the guys were split pretty much 50/50.

    5/10. Not a fan of wide-spaced floral patterns.

    Is it me or are women at work sychopants (sp) ? They have nothing but praises for every men's outfit being discussed.

    5/10, it's ok but I wouldn't buy it/wear it.

    I knew it was a brioni, only cause i've seen the opposite color. I am a fan of it though.

    I like florals but don't think this one is particularly well done. It's a bit too somber.

    I like that tie more than most here. I have a couple floral ties by agnes b so i'm a fan of the genre.

    I think if you try at all, you basically win. I wish there were women in my office.

    In isolation, I like it. But, it ought to be hard to coordinate, having both a vast expanse of dark colour *and* a fairly irregular bright pattern.

    So, it won't blend and enhance the look of a shirt and tie, but sorta sit at odds? This is often why I avoid floral ties...
