    Is a patterned cummerbund and tie set an acceptable option for a black tie event?

    Although the black tie and cummerbund are the more classic option, would a patterned set, such as one from Vineyard Vines, be acceptable attire?

    Cary Grant's tie

    Cary Grant is wearing a beautiful tie in this picture. It's a very subtle blue grey color I can never find (everything I've seen is either too blue or too grey). Does anyone know where to find a tie like it? It coordinates elegantly with his navy suit.

    High-end neckties without screaming "designer"

    I am looking to buy some high-end neckties that people would be able to recognize as expensive if they are familiar, but I don't want to wear a tie with a designer logo plastered all over it. Are there any real nice tie brands that the finely-tuned eye would recognize?
