    Chuck and Jill came up with some designs for the forum "club tie", and I have narrowed them down to these three, among which I don't have a preference. I figured I'd let you all choose. Here are the options: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] The chosen tie will be produced by Chuck (Carlo Franco ties) and details on the price etc. will be explained later. Right now we are just choosing the pattern.

    I'd go for the first pattern. Very italian and more appropriate for summer I would say.

    Good way to do it, j.  Will there be a poll on the construction method too--7-fold, double 4-fold, traditional?

    Hmm. I thought I had disabled replies in this thread. Anyway, the construction I'm not sure on. That will be up to Chuck.

    I would need to see the ties on the model that was used on the AAAC forum to truly assess which I like better.

    They all look pretty good, but I think as L-E pointed out, #1 is the most "summer-y". I think I'd be happy to call myself a "dandy" (in a good way) if I were wearing #1 [​IMG] Has anyone designed the secret SF handshake yet?

    But they're just designs, not actual ties at this point.

    #1, for the most part because it looks less like something you'd find at your local Brooks Brothers. I like all three, though.

    As I said I don't have a preference between the three as designs, but in terms of fitting into the gaps in my own collection, I like #1 the best as well.

    #1 is the most distinctive and also fits into a gap in my collection.

    Can we vote on width? I must insist on 3", but if necessary I will compromise to 3.25"

    I would prefer a narrower width myself, but again that question goes to Chuck first, and maybe then a vote.

    Ah, Kent, my former Galveston homie, we're gonna hafta tango about width. Chuckleheads like myself have a preference for a bigger slab o' silk, 3.75" or thereabouts.

    I actually vote for #3, but #1's nice too.

    Are we sure we want the diagonal down towards the right. I would much prefer the diagonal in the opposite direction with it pointing downwards towards the right. The left chest has the pocket and I think repps look better going down towards the right.

    I feel the same way, but didn't want to raise the issue.
