    Thanks, I think I paid $12 for it, certainly not more than $15. I've given up buying J.Crew or JCF ties though since the width is more narrow than I'd prefer. It does work well with my Ludlow suits/jackets, but my preference is 3-3.25" (TWSS?) Let me re-phrase that, my preferred tie width is 3-3.25"...

          Woh, if you focus on the upper left pic of you being sockless in loafers, it looks like you have no pants on in the right full body pic. I'm just saying.

            Obviously that was the intention.

                  Tie: JCF blue silk neat
                  Lapel Flower: Black Eyed Susan (picked and given to me by my daughter when I got home from work "to wear on my shirt" because its my "favorite")
                  Nice color combo, although, the tie pattern and checkered pattern on your shirt seem to clash. I recall watching a CT video on YouTube awhile back that stated the bigger the pattern on the shirt, the smaller the tie pattern. Likewise, the smaller the pattern on the shirt, the bigger the pattern on the tie

                        I think you did a good job varying the size of the strips. I like it, especially that PS.

                          The tie and shoes are great, what's the material on the tie?

                              I kinda assumed from the rest of the outfit that it was out of my price range, but that's actually not that bad.

                                Apologies, but this has far too much going on to work well. Any one of those items would be fine paired with a reasonably plain ensemble, but together they fail to be cohesive to the point of outright clashing. Every one of those is a "statement" piece.
