    I realized recently that an inordinate number of my favorite ties are a 60/40 silk/cotton blend, or thereabouts. I love those fabrics. Anybody with me on this?

    One of my favorite ties is a green silk/cotton blend, unfortunately it is falling apart after very little use (~10 times). [​IMG] I don't know if it is due to the cotton blend not being sturdy or the Zegna construction, it is my only Zegna tie. You mentioned having an affinity for woven green ties, I too will buy any nice medium/dark green (not olive) tie I come across, thing is they are not easy to find. Any green tie sources you are willing to share ?
