This entry is dedicated to CorriTimigan who asked me to take lots of pictures and I humbly obliged
Now excuse me while I review this tie and its counterparts in detail:
The blue in the floral design is washed out, not due to lighting but the main color of the tie is so light that it doesn't stand out as much.
In my mind this tie is a piece of 10th Doctor History, I will treat it with the awesome respect it deserves.
The much darker tie makes the floral design really pop.
And the blues in it are much more enhanced.
I wish I could review more authentic Tennant ties, and take a bazillion pictures for salivating fans, but for now these will have to do:
UPDATE Dec 7th 2011: By request: FourKnocks wanted me to take a picture with the jacket open, a la the aged Doctor as he emerges from his tent in The Last of the Time Lords.
So, here it is:
But at this point I want to call another tie to the floor,
Fourth in Steve Ricks alternatives is this other tie, in a mysterious brown on brown with repeating floral motif. He displays with the pale blue shirt, I've only worn this tie with the dark blue.
I was quite curious to see how the two Duffer ties would compare to each other and to the Magnoli replica.
I have taken a many pictures so bear with me,
Now I knew that the alternative Duffer tie was what I would call a medium width tie, not a skinny tie, but it is certainly slimmer than the actual Duffer.
Now I took pictures of both the Magnoli tie and the Duffer tie for people who were interested:
Up first is the real, authentic St. George by Duffer
And yes FourKnocks I will try to get a scan of this for you.
I've put them side-by-side here so you can see how close the pattern is, it is very exact. Even the ribbed silk on is exact.
The Duffer is on the left and Magnoli's on the right.
And the Magnoli Replica:
I wanted to announce that I am willing to part with my Magnoli replica for anyone who wants it.
Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back to you.

I am planning on going through with having a blue Tennant suit made, as well as pattern chasing the enigma that is the Daleks in Manhatten tie. Or Tie Nine.
