Tie By Tie 17 (More of the Littles)


Continuing along with some more small patterns and small spaced pin stripe shirts I show a brown suit, burgundy pin striped shirt (both suit and shirt from the His First Hickey Freeman line) and a turquoise/teal patterned tie with the flower pot multi colored square.    This particular colored tie clashed with the blue pin stripe shirt so I used the burgundy.  Incidentally you can swap the brown suit used here for a navy suit and it will look fine as well.

With a detail of the square here.

Against the more calming and sedate shirt the effect is so:

What did work with the blue shirt was the rust colored tie in the same mini floral pattern shown here:

PS(As in Pre Script):  If you noticed I added a tagger link on the right where you can Tag these posts on Delicious.com, please feel free to do so (yeah, spread the word, thanks!).

Anyway, I was informed that the following jacket which I have been labeling as a sports coat is in fact part of a suit but that would not make a difference here.

Here are some suggestions for the Black Check suit sent to me, I welcome thoughts and comments.  (Votes are nice too 🙂 )

I was torn between these two squares, the ovals or the painted Paisley in rust and Black  which I show in this shot.  Meanwhile I went with the one on the right, a rich favorite of mine.

This tie shows more red here in the pic but its a ruby red grapefruit color in actuality.  A rather rich color as well.

The burgundy cashmere/silk blend works but it doesn’t much more than a subtle hello. (which is fine 😉 )

I love this tie, and I like the way that it gives color and life without having any burgundy in it. Its got greys, purple, rust and I think  it looks really nice here.  Quite probably my first choice with this jacket.

For some more on the subject, if you have been following my blog for a bit you will know that I posted about a similar jacket with similar coloration.  It was a Brioni suit but withlarger window panes.  Here is the post as well as here.  It bears looking over as I think the colors are similar even if the Brioni was more slated to a grey brown and this is a more distinct black check.

Been There Round Two


Here are two more looks from the same jacket as yesterday that we did in the kids shop.

In both cases the square was added after for this site (we didnt do a square for the kids, except for in one instance and then I had to pull something from a private stash since the square had to fit into a size 6 kids jacket pocket.)

Here the burgundy shirt and rust tie work with high contrast against the black of the jacket.

And here the blue of the shirt and blue textured tie pick up on the blue stripe of the jacket.  Maybe tomorrow I will show you a closeup of the jacket and how the blue shows)

In all cases the square has all the right colors to match yet have some brightness to it.
