Tie By Tie 11a (Even Better Resolving)

Of course a tie that has blue and cream in it rests comfortably and confidently nestled in a navy suit with either a cream or light blue shirt, complemented by the honey jar patterned square in yellow.

Have a great weekend.

Tie By Tie 11 (Better Resolving)

Here is a relatively simple and painless resolution one can make this eve of 2010.  Resolve to make a concerted effort to pay attention to your clothing coordination.  This can be accomplished by many ways, one of which is following this blog and asking others (like myself but not limited to) for help so that instead of looking like this (which despite what you may have read elsewhere is just plain… wrong on so many accounts):

You end up looking something like this (Grey/Brown with rust wide stripe suit, Blue Shirt,  Medium Stripe Tie in Blue and Cream with Yellow Floral Square):

With the square detail here:

Or this with the cream twill shirt:

Or the same pattern tie in the brown and beige against the blue shirt:

And for a little more color switching for the burgundy and blue floral square to look like this:

Of course, resolving to avoid something like this is also a nice idea 😉

Thanks for making 2009 a great year for FTWU (this blog)  by following and as the consistently increasing readership stats (and purchases) have shown for approving.  Here’s looking forward to an even better and more exciting 2010.

Have a great,  successful and most of all a pleasant 2010.


Yellow and Navy

From the search queries yet again.  Running out so up go the pix with discussion to follow!

Yellow and navy is fairly natural together so the no brainer is another blue color in there. I chose the square in case some felt it was too monochromatic in the blues and blues and it does in fact freshen it up. The square is a favorite of mine from the new collection.

Which is the sum of these parts.

In the same concept I changed the tie while leaving the square in there (and I did in fact leave the square for the whole shoot because you can almost go anywhere with squares here) and added this tie.  It keeps the same blue field and adds in a touch of orange in the flower.

Being that the color of the shirt is yellow and the stripe here is wide it may look too matchy matchy with the shirt but I like this look.  The tie is of classic design and color.  Make a wonderful knot and dimple.

Finally to round out some blue ties I added this.  Another classic design with the gold stripe coordinating with the shirt and square.

Moving somewhat away from the blues (although this tie does have a steely blue weft giving it that shimmer)  I introduced this tie to the mix.  Less of a contrast but equally nice.  As its a blaxer being used and ot a suit and has a slight density and texture to it as do many treu blazers the added dimension of the tie is a nice touch.

Finally, green is an oft overlooked color.  Very versatile and useful especially with navy.  The first tie in fact is a green and navy blended weave to give you this look.  Green of course works quite well with yellows too.

Ending with this tie which is interestingly enough the reverse of a lime green and blue.  We didn’t like the front side but loved the back.  The irridescence of the tie gives anough blue and green to work really well.  What say you?
