The design comes through
The image was really good on the tie. I am familiar with the painting by Katsushika Hokusai and was worried that on a tie, Microfiber no less, the image would lose its impact. However, though you could slightly see the lines of the microfiber, the image was still very powerfull. I know my husband will love it. It is an xmas present, so can't give you anymore than just looks for now.
