Pink and Red?


Traditional pundits will tell you that Pink clashes with Red.  Like everything else, its only sometimes correct.

Here are some shots that might debunk that part truth:

The suit is navy, the shirt is light pink, the ties are various shades of reds.  I intentionally chose a deep red square to highlight the red of the ensemble.

The First Tie has red with blue cross stripes, which comes back to the navy suit.

This twill tie might be too red against the pink. (I would love to hear your thoughts)

Better and more subtle is this twill:

Initially I thought this chevron tie may have been too strong, but I think the white breaks it up.

Yes, I know that this tie is NOT red.  But I really liked the way it went with the pink shirt.  Highlighted with the square its a winner.

Red – Only the Bold!


With a dark navy suit giving a strong contrasting frame you get a stronger and more bold look at red and blue. (oh, and I add that I am getting better with my new camera…)

being that the case I substituted the darker square for a little lighter one. From the same family. More with a focus on red and light blue than navy and yellow.

Again we have our Power Red Tie.  Wear this and you will get noticed, I promise!


Navy brings out the strength of this tie and the second as we mentioned before, just with greater contrast.

Finally a red and navy Neets twill will give you a wonderfull look, coordinating and contrasting.

Red – Only the Brave


Its a popular misconception about red.  Bulls do not charge the matador when they see him or her waiving that red cape.  They do not see color (or so I have been led to believe).  
That being said there is something quite bold in a red article of clothing that catches our attention.  Admit it, It wasn’t just Neo. You also focused on the woman in red in The Matrix.

Here are some pics to ponder. As you can see the red was paired with blue and it works quite well. Later we will go elsewhere with red. 

I am fine tuning the camera, bu tyou get a general idea with the blues about the looks you can expect.  As I comment below, the suit is medium blue and you will see on subsequent posts just how much stronger the red gets when paired with a darker navy.

Enjoy!

Here a red tie criss crossed (criss cross Larry, crissss crossss) with blue.  In fact to create the stripe the tie has a blue warp which gives it depth of a blue nature.  The square is from the new collection.  The shirt, always the same patterned blue on blue.


Here you have a blend of red and others that works well with the tie.  It gives the overall red look without being as bold as the others.

A popular seller, this shows the full effect a bold red tie can give you. Of course its not solid red so the punch is cut in half.  Someone say “Cat in the hat” and I will punch them.  I like this series and will devote a post to them hopefully next week.

The ultimate diplomat 🙂  Depending on your view of life, its neither red nor blue,  Or better yet, it gives you both colors yet its non committal.

Red after a few No Doze pills washed down with Jolt or Red Bull!  Packs a punch and a knockout one at that!

Last but not least, a punch but a little tempered by  the white warp.  I once sold this tie to be sent as a gift to a high ranking profesor in University of Mississippi.

Of significant note is the fact that the suits is a medium blue laced with grays. A stronger navy blue will give a much contrasting red as we will soon see.
