    Why the sockless look in some of the pics?

    Spent all my money on black knit ties; none left for socks.

    I'm confused as to why a black tie knit might be more versatile than a dark navy knit tie. Can someone explain?

    overall it's a tie, maybe, except you can't wear navy to a funeral and a black tie looks better with a blue suit at night.

    hmmmm. I don't own a black knit tie, but I wear a black grenadine often - I have two one from Panta and one from Chipp. I am not sure why knit would be better than grenadine. I hate square ended ties and I have a hard enough time finding point ended knit ones that even if I wanted a black knit, I expect I would never find one with a point.

    I can see that in those situations. Considering I still wear brown shoes at night though, navy knit is still for me.

    I think Jamison had some at one point. I have a couple of point ended knit ties from Kilgour, solid and with woven dots.

    I expect that some may not like this Kent Wang PS. In other news, seeking a PS with a bottle green field. Any recommendations?

    Thanks. WIth two grenadines in black, I don't need a black knit, but I could use a nave, maybe, especially since I don't know what happened to my navy grenadine.

    He does . . . for grenadines, of which I have taken advantage, but not for point-ended knits (or any knits, I think).

    why thank you!

    no joke, i was thinking of including you in my reply to SB. i should have just asked a general question, or tried to name everyone that was involved before. now i just feel rude. :(

    ill now mention CPE, as he also chimed in before. i dont recall who else.
