    I need new ties. I currently own 3 suits (Navy Pinstripe, Charcoal Pinstripe, and Olive)

    What do you think about these ties:

    Paisley

    Fleur de Lis

    Growing Paisley

    Swell Paisley

    I have solid blue and solid white shirts to wear with them. I want to stay fairly conservative, but I am not too worried about branching out a bit. Also, I'm a bigger guy and have a thick neck; so I wear a wide collar shirt and usually go with a double windsor knot.

    Any suggestions or recommendations for other ties?

    Those ties are anything but conservative. Also, you have to be careful with a double windsor knot, not to end up like this guy!! What's you budget? If you don't mind me asking.

    $30-$50 a tie unless you can justify more with a good argument.

    Fleur de Lis looks ok but I'm leaning towards solid ties for pinstriped suits

    Yeah, I'm not really feeling any of those ties. Despite the white and blue shirts, what color slacks/suits/sport coats do you wear?

    Sorry, not a fan of any of those.

    The Fleurs de Lis is ok, the other ties are really ugly.

    I do like these ties. I'm not sure what I am looking at and why ties vary in price and quality. Are there any solid guides that can explain better why we should buy a certain quality tie?

    I agree with the fleur de lis, but you can disregard the rest.
