Within Striking Distance

A customer requested some suggestions for a Black suit, White shirt, that would make the outfit “striking”.

Here are my suggestions. (Customer rarely wears a square so I felt it safe to go with a white linen square which is always nice and safe).

First up is the Taffetta Rust with raw silk stripes.  I love this tie and  I dont think that its fully understood.  Its Sharp, Its different and its got POP!

Another great combo.  A rich plum, almost fuscia and dark pinkish stripe.  The fabric is also unique giving it almost a wrinkled look, but oh so nice.

Nothing like oldies but goodies.  Rusty red with a gold braided stripe here.  Great irridescent depth to the tie due to the different colored warp and weft.  A classic pattern for FIH.

Hey, we have seen this feller before.  But he is certainly still makes the grade.  A crisp satin base rust and beige make it a great popping tie against the black and white.

Should be peachy but pictured like an orange.

This is a true orange.  Not on the site it seems.  But close to it is this.

Last but not least is this paisley stripe,  an amazing tie up close  when you get to see all that is happening in there.

  1. I was waiting for this.

    • A vague comment here.

      Were you referring to the blog in general or to the black suit?

      🙂

      • No, I’ve been following your blog for a while. Was just waiting for the black suit to come up – despite the controversy on AAAC and SF.

        Seems any shade of silver, red or orange will match.

    • I see. Of course any color would work with a black suit and white shirt. But to get a pop you would ave to go with bold start colors. Red, Bronze, Orange will give it to you. Silver will not be as striking against the white shirt.
