As soon as I saw the Palm pattern, I was pretty sure it had the perfect balance of subtlety and whimsy for my wedding. I ordered the swatch to verify the color, as the Palm tie color is described as being unique and varying between gray and blue-ish gray depending on the lighting. In person, I found the swatch color to be a very good match to the online swatch photo (there are definitely blue undertones). The Palm tie photos which show the tie as being more of a washed out gray are misleading in my opinion. The swatch was delivered quickly so I recommend it if you are on the fence at all about the color!
