    It may take me a bit to put this together, if at all. I confess that I don't really do any file management with my fitpics, especially since SF started supporting uploads.

    Nonetheless, I am flattered by my inclusion.

    I think the hard part is to narrow down to 10 ties.

    After that, just scrolling through your WAYWRN thread to pick five representative fits with those ties would be fairly easy.

    Sugarbutch won't remember this, but he was among the first to make helpful suggestions on one of my earliest posts. It was then I realized that SF could be a great resource, if you were willing to listen.

    Gunclub is amazing but I honestly like all the combinations.

    As someone who is slowly building a wardrobe, this is an informative thread. Thank you for starting it.

    Excellent thread. Fascinating, particularly from the perspective of someone who knows very little about CM dress. Moar!

    I'll post mine tonight. Took tie pictures this morning. I am less concerned with seasonality than some. Color is most important; if the color is right, for me, a linen tie can be F/W.

    In the interest of MOAR PICS, I will post the ties even though I don't yet have the pics of them in context with the jackets. I want to stress that these are my *seasonal* choices, not necessarily the ties I would recommend for a ten-tie wardrobe.

    [​IMG]

    Knits: navy, brown, olive, dark orange, and black

    [​IMG]

    Wool blends: Olive with red paisleys, plum, just lighter than navy, and green with just a hint of teal

    Wool bows: Navy and mid-gray

    I agree completely about linen ties. I would include my own orange and tan linen ties for a fall/transitional wardrobe, but they are a bit bright to make the top ten.

    It's a knock off of a Borrelli two button collar BD made for me by Hemrajani (mytailor).
    I wonder if this is partly due to the climates you've lived in. I assume that being in TX, your fall/winter picks will look different from mine given warmer temperatures.

    @sugarbutch

    Yes! Nice, lots of knits and a pair of bow ties as well. Looking forward to the fit pics.

    @sugarbutch if you don't mind me asking...where are the bow ties from?

    Except South Korea has distinct seasons and it didn't bother me there. I wasn't wearing linen suits in the winter mind you (and don't really do it in Texas, though I might start here pretty soon).

    While we're waiting (reducing to 10/5 is hard), @sugarbutch 's tie pics made (a) knits and (b) silk more salient in my mind. I'd happily swapped a pointed blue knit for my blue grenadine, partly to "de-rusticate" my choices.

    To cheat a little on the rules (and in the interest of providing more pics), an alternative to my copper herringbone tweed would be something in silk (too blue AM light):

    Anyway, @Claghorn next?

    Luca is afraid you guys may be overthinking it a little...

    Of course, and I believe that Luca was exaggerating. Though there is of course the suggestion that overthinking and style may be mutually exclusive.

    I doubt that's true. Overthinking and effortless style, maybe. Anyway, these are topics for the Lounge. Want to raise them there?

    Yeah that's a better idea, sorry. Didn't mean to disrupt the thread. Please carry on...
