BB you're right. The honours tie has green in it (and thinner stripes). Only former and current players qualify for one of those but any member is entitled to wear the members' tie. As they give out memberships with season tickets now (when I joined I had to be proposed by an existing member and seconded by another member and then have my application referred to a membership committee!), I'm sure that Mr Ellis has satisfied the demanding criteria for wearing a members' tie!!
The "honours" tie is only worn by players / ex-players who have not only played for Quins at some level, but also then were invited to play for another side on the back of that.
For example...being picked for the Baa-Baas, England, Surrey, Middlesex etc.
All I was inviting comment on re DE was...
1. Do you think that he's a paid up member?
2. A season ticket holder?
3. By wearing the club tie, is he showing that it's so hard to distinguish between the club & the business?
