    Here's a tie from the FIH site that looks great in all four color combos at the site: http://www.fourinhand.com/Product.as...ct=FH80D-06-BK I like the plum color and the burgundy, lilac, gold combo best. BTW, how does one post a simple jpg? Instead of the url?

    I like the tie. To post an image, click on the Image button in the row of buttons above the box where you enter your post and enter the URL of the image. Like this: [​IMG]

    jcusey: Thanks. I thought that putting in the url would only do the same thing as copying and pasting the url in a link format. Test: [​IMG] For the one who hated the tie and said sorry: Don't apologize if you don't like the same things I do. It's all a matter of taste. And, at least for that tie, yours didn't match mine.

    Interesting tie for business (meaning I'd never wear it.) I don't think that it is particularly festive, however, and wouldn't recommend it for groomsmen's attire.

    There you go.

    To elaborate on my comment, I think that the tie works better in plum than it does in the other colors, although the burgundy isn't bad. It's interesting, but it doesn't have so much going on that it's too busy. It reminds me of one of Talbott's more successful efforts.

    I think the blue one would look great in a business setting against a dark blue shirt. Very subtle and low key. On top of a contrasting shirt I would call more attention to it than it can handle.
