    I won this last night I thought it was interesting, yet subdued due to the colors. I'm currently upgrading a thin tie collection one interesting piece at a time.

    Looks like a sharp tie - and you got it at a great price.

    Nice Ebay ID as well, especially today - Go Cats.

    I bought two ties from this seller last month (or maybe two months ago) - a blue striped behar and a purple turnbull & asser. Â I was very happy with the purchase. Â No flaws as far as I could see. The olive/blue paisley is a nice combination.

    I remember 97 like it was yesterday, Bradford. Best extended two week period of my life, bar none. I still remember crying tears of joy (probably the hardest I've ever cried in my life, if you can believe it) when we beat Kansas in the Sweet 16. I actually got to attend the Final Four in Indianapolis -- I've never loved such a drab town so much.

    My guess is that you'll be crying tears of sorrow soon enough. Â [​IMG] Go Cowboys. Oh, nice tie. Â Would go great with any blue-striped shirt.

    Nice tie, great price. I have something similar from Bizzocchi.
    I would stick with the woven ties, this is a textured print and does not knot as nicely as the woven Bizzochi's.

    Try Last Call during their markdowns, pretty easy to find Bizzocchi ties in the $18 to $25 range, they are by far my favorite ties along with Nicky and Brioni.

    Seems like neat tie for a good price. I have to say that the seller has the most annoying tie auction format though... sit back and wait for his 3048329403824093248 pictures to load, and not one of them a full shot of the tie from a normal angle.

    Nice tie.

    13 Pictures to be precise. What I find strange though is that some of them are pretty much duplicates of the same pic before.

    Paisleys must be in. I won these a couple of days ago. (No comment on '97 champs other than, well, the '96 and '98 champs were better... [​IMG] ) Oh, yes, great tie, Johnny. Good price, too.

    Great ties all. I've fell in love with paisley ties in grade 9, when I insisted on getting one for a public speaking combination.

    AlanC, especially like the Holliday & Brown.

    Yes, I particularly like the H&B, too.

    I've only recently warmed up to paisleys, actually. I think the problem is that most paisleys I saw were really ugly. I'm seeing a lot more vibrant and beautiful paisleys these days. I don't know if they were always there and I missed them, or there are just more now.

    I hate paisleys.

    I would hate it if paisleys were coming back into fashion again.

    Maybe it's a necessary evil after small floral print and obnoxious multistripes.

    Good-looking tie with texture, at a great price for the quality. Seems versatile, for both navy and charcoal suits.
