150+ Screencaps of the ties
(Timestamps in the filenames in case you want to go digging for your own caps. In the Scrapbook click on Original to get to fullsize.)

If you click on the icon-sized thumbnails in the picture column they should open a fullsize version of the pic in a new window.

So...there you are. Canonically, 13 ties to choose from. Give me a shout if you spot any more? But don't forget, fanon says Gene has an endless supply of ties, so really, do what you like with them. :)

Much love for the costume department, the continuity people and, er, Mr Glenister. ♥

This is one of the greatest things I have ever, EVER seen! I just can't even describe how happy it makes me feel. Haha!

...also, I like to refer to the tie you called 'brown weirdness' as the 'Litton's Jacket Tie.' We're surrounded by JACQUARD BASTARDS (HELP)! XDDD
