I'm building up a small collection of Paul Malone ties and whether it was professional or a "night out", Paul Malone ties have, so far, put that very necessary accent on my wardrobe. And so, I'm a returning customer (smile). With the Solid Mellow Yellow, though the quality is obviously the same, the color was one or two shades off of what I needed which is closer to a more lively cream...it's a photo shoot. And so, I'm, unfortunately, returning the Mellow Yellow as well as the 2 'slim ties' I mistakenly ordered (I'm a 'regular' kind of guy-smile). Short story...I was in Vegas and I couldn't anything across the whole town except for skinny ties, skinny jeans, and skinny suits. Unfortunately, I'm far too active for that...and the outfit wouldn't last a night (smile). I do, however, plan to reorder for a tie more suitable for my purposes. And, due to the quality alone, would recommend Mellow Yellow as well as many of the other products from the Paul Malone line to family, friends, and strangers alike. Stay safe and have a very beautiful day.
