    New Panta acquisition... more exciting purchase to come later this week!

    Finally I found a brown polka dot tie. I have been searching for one for eons, so I am glad I finally found one.

    Not my best knot, the tie was much too short. It knots nicely when I tie it properly.

    thanks for the purchase. Knot size is subjective but I think too many here err on the side of knots that are too big/wide for the shirt collars they wear. Obviously I am biased but I like the way that knot looks like on that shirt collar and on what seems to be a relatively skinny guy. I also don't like those perfectly centered dimples, personal preference, but it looks too fastidious, particularly in a more casual sportcoat ensemble. I tie my knot and however it comes out on the first try, that is how it stays, unless the tie is too short (and I like a shorter tie than most to begin with). Anyway, its all personal preference.
