    Although much derided on here, I quite like my tartan flashes (I have them to match 2 of my kilts).

    I also have plain coloured flashes in green and black and was thinking of knocking up a pair in tweed to match one of my jackets.

    I wear dark green garter ties regardless of my hose. If I were to get another set they would probably be claret or gold most likely. I prefer deep, rich colours for the most part, so for me (aside from gold) it makes sense.

    Huh...not an item I've given much thought in years.

    I have a pair of garter ties that came with some shooting socks. They are a woodsy green with bright red fringe. These go with everything and are what I generally wear. I received a pair in red with my House of Cheviot tartan red hose, and will wear those when I can get a good contrast my hose (with green, tan, or other non-red hose). I really like the contrasting look.

    I do have a pair of tartan flashes on elastic that came with an old kilt, which I don't often use.

    My one and only pair of flashes, of fairly dark blue, have done me well for the last 30 odd years.

    Flashes in blue, red and for some reason khaki.

    Iíve a few colours. Despite that, almost always go for the dark blue. Special occasions I use the mustard or blue full garter tie

    But if I were ever to choose another colour for some reason, I think I'd go with a gold, yellow, or mustard.
    I use gold garter ties exclusively, but if I were to branch out I'd go red
