    That was the result of a random Google search. I checked thetiebar.com first. They had a few that were in the ballpark but not quite right so I gave up and tried Google. I was hoping to give you an example you could buy but didn't work out.

    Ben Silver has a bunch of plaid ties on sale right now:

    I'm pretty sure all the "made in England" ties are by Drake's, probably my favorite tie maker. I'm not sure who makes the "made in France" ties, but Ben Silver always has top notch producers for all their products. (Crockett & Jones for shoes for example)

    Kent Wang also offers the shepherd's check in navy (although it looks more like a brighter blue in the online picture). I gather this is less traditional, but I like it better than the black version for a little color.

    I think as said the motivation was to be able to pick a colour that will flatter each body shape (she has a bridesmaid who is quite big) and to buy them a dress that can be re-used. I think it also has to do with the fact that the last 2 weddings we went to were the same!

    Any way thanks for the input so far. Here's a picture of the colour scheme for the flowers. I haven't actually considered whether the girls will have a coloured sash so I'll find that out!

Let's be honest, women in flattering black dresses are a hell of a lot nicer to look at than women in typical bridesmaid getups. And as you point out, additional coordination can be achieved via flowers (on corsages and in the hair, most likely), accessories and the like.

    Then again, I'm pretty happy to give a lot of wedding traditions the finger, so maybe my opinion isn't that helpful.
    Reusable dresses is always a good idea. I'm just recalling all the times I mentioned, in jest, black dresses to ladies planning a wedding and received the look of death in return lol.

    Out of the ones you picked I would certainly pick the more bold stripes. I think that at a weeding there are a lot of group pictures and things where thinner stripes or dots might not be lost.

    IMHO though, your groomsmen are going to look quite dull (sharp, but dull). Why not match the ties to the color of the ladies' flowers? Another idea could be to get different ties within the same color scheme.

    Plus you have Drakes in the UK! I'm usually griping about the shipping from there to here. (Drake's sale is still on BTW: http://www.drakes-london.com/sale) One of my all-time favorite brands. OP, I have a Drake's shepherd's check that I got for a steal at NM Last Call. Not all of them carry Drake's and the other mainline Bergdorf stuff but if yours does, you might find a great wedding tie there. Not gonna have enough of one pattern for the groomsmen though.

    A little pricey, but really nice and handmade in NYC.
    Fred, I want one, but the shipping cost to the UK would be almost as much as the tie itself. C'est la vie.

    That's funny Shomas, when I read "The bridesmaids are all dressed in black "

    I was like DAMN! I want to go to that wedding!
