Running With It


I kinda Like the Blazer/Shirt combo we last posted so I am gonna run with it.

 

Blues, Browns, Beiges and a little color (in this case Orange).  They work really well.

Here you have a small herringbone striped tie which brings in alot of colors, blue and lighter blues etc. but you get a look at the orange as thats the strongest color here.  The square give a nice contrast to the ensemble.

 

Too many stripes?

Some can argue that this tie has too many (similar in size to the shirt) stripes.

Some may feel that the Tie in this picture is a little too light for me. Matches too well with the sportcoat.  I cant argue with that line of logic but it doesnt disqualify the tie despite it. 

Too Light a Tie?

Too Light a Tie?

The following tie is always a classic.  In fact I will revisit it soon because dots this size and anything under this size really works well almost everywhere.  Any larger sized dots tend to look clowny.  The square being off white tones down the contrast that the tie brings in, while working well with the jacket in its own right.

Nice!

Nice!

Brown And Blue Revisited


In The Last post we showed the versatility of one tie and where it could go.

 

To be fair and honest, light blue is fairly easy as it really goes well everywhere.  Also I dont know that I would have done the brown with Blue and Blue like this:

 

Brown and Blue

Brown and Blue

 Instead given that shirt and suit I might Have Opted for something like this which shows the contrast of Brown and Navy against the lighter blue shirt:

 

Blue and Brown Tie against Brown Suit

Blue and Brown Tie against Brown Suit

Lets discuss though, how we would use a tie like the one above which seems to be a little more stylish?

 

So we paired it with a Lighter sportscoat and shirt giving the coat a little pop along with the square that contrasts in the pocket.  The result is this:  Incidentally I like the plain off white linen square that shows up a few posts from now.

The Customer decided on this tie (The wife liked it who can, better yet, WHY in G-d’s name argue 🙂 ) and the white linen square , but to confuse them both I threw in two more square options.
