    They're fine, just kind of uninteresting and unrefined IMHO...I'm sure that RLPL one costs a pretty penny and maybe the other ones are expensive too, but somehow to me a solid shiny tie is always in danger of looking like it was bought for $15 somewhere. A glen check will never look like that.

    I hate satin solid as well, but not all solids need to be satin. There's twill, and of course grenadine:

    I just wanted to say how helpful this thread has been. I found a RL Glen Plaid tie NWT on eBay for $45 that is perfect. I will be wearing it for my wedding.

    Going through this wedding tie decision myself right now. What do people think of this with a 2B, peak lapel charcoal three piece suit and a white french cuff collar pin shirt?

    Should the dots be closer, or is this acceptable?

    That can work IMO.

    It's a decent outfit, but it isn't a traditional wedding tie, if that matters to you.

    Other than that, there are two things I don't like about that tie: the dots are horizontal instead of diagonal, and it isn't even cut straight. You can see the columns of dots are not even.

    I can see his point, the diagonal dots would make it more flattering on the wearer, am I right?

    I now agree. I looked at my dot ties at home, and they are all diagonally dispersed in an "X" fashion. I take it there is nothing inherently incorrect about wearing a dot tie for wedding then, and that it is equally acceptable as the plaid (which I do not care for) and the sheperd's check.

    There's really no tie that is specifically unacceptable for a wedding, but the proper wedding ties described earlier in this thread, including black/white glen plaid, shepherd's check, etc. are the most proper. Dot ties are not in the same rank as these.

    If you've got time, Sam Hober can hook you up with whatever you need. Less time, but more expense, Drake's.

    For my wedding last year I picked up seven or eight varied ties for ushers and groomsmen from Jaan J. They are vegan (not silk) and cheap. They have a nice assortment of appropriate patterns and colors, though, and mine formed a nice dimple with some encouragement.

    With a few weddings this fall, I thought I'd start adding a few wedding ties to my collection. Unfortunately, Hober is out of the two patterns I prefer.

    Any recommendations for other Hober patterns that would fit the idea of a conservative wedding tie?

    I'd prefer to buy from Hober as I've had nothing but success with his ties and service, but I did like the look of this Cappelli

    Noted, but anything from Hober? I'm thinking with no new Cappelli orders processed until after September 10, I probably won't have that in time for an end of September wedding.

    For the poors out there who just need a bunch of wedding ties for their groomsmen, hit up TieBar! Ties aren't amazing but they're 15 bux.
