    3 of them are for my friend Mister Pollock. Do you think he will like them? Which 3 should I send to him? [​IMG]

    As Ken Pollock likes traditional, natural shoulder clothes he certainly like the rep stripes and probably the houndstooth, IMO. The tie on the right contains the French flag, and it will be a bold lawyer who wears this tie to court in Georgia in the current political climate.

    I like the first three. The last one reminds me of that gross hard candy mix that old ladies put out in dishes on doilies.

    IMO = In My Opinion.

    Ditto on the first three, particularly the first one on the left. Who's the maker, Faconnable?

    Ditto on the first three to the left, particularly the one on the far left, for khaki and navy suits and jackets.

    LOVE the houndstooth (really, it's more of a shepherd's check).  The reps I can take or leave.  The last is too busy for me.

    Ernest,
    Meaning I agree with others who have posted to the effect that they prefer these three.

    I have the same opinion as everyone else here. I like the 3 on the left. I personally don't care for the last one at all.

    I like the French flag tie. I selected it and the two repps. Anyone jealous that I have a personal shopper in Paris?
