Alright, folks, I really want to start this one.

1. It's a great hobby among men (those who dress up, yes, we secretly hoard ties, it's like a stamp collection thing)
2. Often times, many end up mixing it wrong, simply becoz they are not aware (I often see dudes having stripes in both the shirt AND the tie )
3. It really enhances the dress statement
4. I often run into women in the men's department, middle aged adults north of 40 years, and they diligently pick ties for their husbands, and speaking to a few, it's amazing the amount of pattern-colour-matching ideas they have in their heads
5. This will be your one stop shop to share patterns, ideas and improvisations.

Was shopping in the city today, with my brother. Was faced with matching a grid shirt with the right tie. The shirt was a pale-golden grid patterned one, and I ended up picking a dark coffee brown herringbone pattern tie. But the bill on the tie was like 95 and I have already been scoping a similar herringbone deal on ebay for my plain pale pink shirts.

The pattern is the same, except that it was yellow lines on white canvas. Already have the shirt.

The tie was similar to the one here, but coffee brown. This one's black.

Instead, I'm gonna use the third tie on the right, the burgundy one which is like a mock iridescent, temporarily, unless I find a dark brown deal like the second blue herringbone one.

Anyway, this is the one I'm zoning in on over on ebay. It's located in Oz and bidding ends soon. Something about it is catchy.

My rainbow tie on a light blue shirt was such a good success. I'm looking to get a new such mix with a light blossom shirt and that tie. No? Looks wacko

If that's the verdict, I'll have to drop it LMAO

No mention of width. I'm assuming it's a regular 3.75"

Of the ties you posted I think the maroon one is the only one I'd consider. It's not that I would never wear a patterned tie with a patterned shirt, but the scale of the ties seems too similar to that of the shirt, which is something to avoid.

It's right here. This is the one I purchased, I got the yellow. They have four colours - yellow, pink, aqua and purple. Zoom it and the grid has an inner saw-like pattern. It's an amazing shirt. Goes well with any dark suit, or even no suit. Some days I simply can wear it with a pattern tie, like a herringbone or something.

It's moved to clearance and it's at a bargain. Good sizes have been poached though. I poached the 14.5-33 yellow. Would have been perfect if it were a French cuff. I may have to use the tailor again and convert it. I got it for 29 bucks, fished it out of clearance. You don't get such designs even in Nordstrom, they are all boring.

Am sick of white shirts, like going to a funeral.

They also have some freaky dress shirts

This one's funny. Does anyone find this one appealing? Looks finely tailored, but...
