    Well, maybe you should have worked up some purple and green entries.

    I don't even think my best entry made it to the finals, to be honest - and mine weren't the best of the bunch. It's hard to vote because they're all nice. Can they all be made?

    edit: mine were the best, vote ROBASAURUS so I can have a free tie!

    There were some great designs which didn't make the cut. Partly in the interest of conciseness, but I also had to leave out a few because I just didn't think I could replicate them from the existing palette of silks. Next time, I'll try to post an actual palette of the 40 or so colors.

    The Parker design looks a lot like an Oxxford wool tie that I have seen around here a few times. It got my vote.

    Cantabrigian's would get the most wear for me, I think. Looking forward to the results!

    They are, just not the one you want them to vote for. [​IMG]

    I think the winner has changed three or four times already. Looks like it will be neck and neck (no pun, I swear).

    I like Parker's!

    that said - i am surprised that the "spring-y" ones (6-10) aren't doing better considering the current saeson!!! And I am not saying that becuase my entry (9) lieas within that.

    Did I mention that my entry is 9?
    (u chud v0at 4 neyene)

    I just don't want to finish last!!!

    I heard that by voting for my design, it will make ascension into Nirvana 46% easier. If you are an atheist, then voting for my tie will increase the likelihood for finding $100 bills on the street by 46%.

    Is finding a $100 bill the atheist's nirvana?
