    Boring ties are the best ties, IMO. Same thing with shirtings.

    I prefer for eccentricity and vibrancy to come out through less-boring suits and shoes, as well as tasteful accessories. I really dislike the look of a loud shirt and tie worn with a sober suit and bland shoes.


    QFT.

    Manton, really like the new Cappelli.

    I have that poplin and the soft green paisley, they are beautiful.

    I go back and forth on these. When done right they are incredible but I feel like one only needs two or three of them (one navy, one green, one red / burgundy).

    Those are very nice, E. Sufficiently boring yet not.

    +1 I only need a couple. BTW, Manton, I love your choices. Did you just do a standard three fold?

    They are lined six-folds. That is Cappelli's standard make.

    Here is my stuff, my only print is the third from the left. The burgandy is for when I feel wild and crazy. My favorite is the one to the right of the burgandy.

    that's my kind of collection right there.

    I was talking with my wife about ties at lunch and she said mine are all too boring for her.

    I' surprised by the lack of boring micro-paisleys.

    Damn, Ed-- that is a nice collection of ties. I've been looking for a nice woven burgandy tie with tan or gold dots, myself actually.

    Just picked up a few new ties, myself. So, here's my question: to best break out of boring-tie mode, I wondered if the tie on the far right (navy with sky blue stripe) would work with a grey suit? Would it even work with a white with red pencil stripes shirt and grey suit (think I caught a glimpse of something like that on the mens.style Flusser podcast but don't recall)
