Recommendations for a white necktie as well as other neckties?

I'm thinking of buying some new ties from Sam Hober and was looking for some advice or choices on what to get next? Right now I have a burgundy and black grenadine and a navy navy macclesfield. I'm looking for maybe one or two more versatile ties to add to my rotation. Generally I wear a charcoal grey suit and light blue or white shirts. Might add a navy suit next.

Anyways, my main question is for a white necktie, not bow tie. I live and work in Japan and apparently for formal celebration events like graduations and welcoming events people wear black suits and white ties. I want to buy a white necktie for such occasions since I attend quite a few but I'm not sure what kind of style or fabric would be best. There doesn't seem to be a set standard everyone abides by though. Some people wear pure white and others have kind of a silver tie. Patterns seem to be okay, I don't think I've seen a non patterned white tie. The only thing I can say is that everyone wears some sort of shiny whiteish tie.

Now I could just swing by the nearest department store and buy any cheapo white tie but I figured if I was gonna buy one I'd like it to be awesome. Any advice?
