I've been wondering about green linen ties, @Claghorn . I like them in principle, but wonder whether they will be used that often. I would have thought to try it with the brown jacket that you have on (or pairing that jacket with the green knit which I also own but is a bit darker in color). The Panta is a bit brighter than the green knit, so perhaps something I would reach for more often in the summer. Do you have pics of the brown jacket with the green ties? @sprout2 so I own one tie you like? I'll chalk that up to a victory for today.
