“How I Met Your Mother” fans, restart your speculation engines. The Season 7 premiere, “The Best Man,” is just around the corner. And ahead of its Sept. 19 debut, CBS released a rather telling clip.

Now, as we already know, the bulk the episode plays out in the normal timeline, with Ted  (Josh Radnor) performing best man duties for childhood friend Punchie (Chris Romanski) and the rest of the gang somehow along for the ride at his Cleveland nuptials. But there’s also another look at Ted’s other best man gig, at Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) future wedding.

Picking up where Season 6 left off, with Ted walking in on his tuxedo-clad best friend, Barney goes off on how he’s not sure if he’s ready to commit to his tie. He has a few tie options, you know, and it’s hard to tell if he’s picking the right one.

Naturally, Barney would find a sartorial metaphor for his mystery bride. Watch the preview and let us know if you think he’s referring to Robin (Cobie Smulders) or Nora (Nazanin Boniadi).
