BB#3 Repp Tie
A great, basic tie, but best bought in-store
These ties are the right width--neither too wide nor too narrow. Personally, I think the BB#3 Repp Tie, with its pencil stripe (or almost-pencil stripe), is the most classic offered by BB and has great versatility. The silk is nice, though it could be thicker and weightier.
But my only real complaint is the color. For many of the color combinations, the website photo is not true to the actual color. For example, the light blue with pink stripe. In reality, the light blue is practically an electric shade of light blue, NOT a baby blue. And the pink is more like a salmon color and is not a light pink.

Pink stripes on navy
I bought one of these online (in pink stripes on navy), the stripes are bolder than I thought, which could either be good or bad depending on your preferred style. For me, it's a great choice for less formal occasions, but if you are looking for something more versatile and subtle, go for the navy-white combination.

#3 Repp Stripe most versatile
I think the BB #3 repp tie can be worn with absolutely anything - especially the ones with the navy or black background. Just a fantastic, classic tie that works with any shirt and jacket combination.

Navy and White repp. Very classic design worn by many stylish men. Can be worn with nearly all combinations. This is the 3"ish classic width.
