More on black and orange


Here is some more on the black and orange theme, as well as the charcoal and orange.  I added here the burnt orange with the black and the charcoal and orange stripe.  I think you will agree that the combo is super sharp and its almost as if the tie was made for that suit.

Here with the orange version of yesterday’s woven paisley.  Framed by a black suit and grey twill shirt.  (Great luxurious hand on that shirt).   As I mentioned yesterday the ties are busy and bright enough for a plain off white linen square.

The burnt orange (sigh, what a beauty) tie with the same black suit.

And the same order with the charcoal and orange pin stripe suit.  You only get the true color of the suit in the second pic.

Niiiiiiiiiice! 🙂

Some More Fall


Here are some more fall looks for you with that same Hickey Freeman Jacket, this time though with a grey twill shirt you have seen before

In some of these cases though I kept to typical ties with fall-like colors as opposed to textured wools.  Darker is usually considered more fall-like being more somber and all that, dont shoot me, thats just the way it usually is.)

The square was a nice Burgundy/Rust/Gold one with darkish colors that complement nicely the black of the jacket and you can see the detail here.  Pretty much every color in the square would work independantly with the jacket.

The tie used here is a blackish with a blue stripe tie from Petronius.  The hand on the Petronius and Attolini ties are simply wonderful.

A four fold (Italian Seven Fold) Attolini Tie with the charcoal grey field and a rusty burgundy stripe.

Burgundy as you know is a classic color which works well with most things (as does the ever so boring grey) Here is a burgundy cashmere silk blend.

And here is the same blend in Blue

For Work and for Play


Using a  Hickey Freeman jacket that can be used in both a work and a play setting, I ended up with something like this for work which when you swap out the serious black tafetta tie, you get a whole different look.

SO here we go with the Taffeta Tie.  Nice serious Mature look.  I think certainly business like enough (unless you are in a suit and tie office.  The square gives a little life to the look without making it too much.  (Incidentally, I think that they square has no less than NINE colors in it.  Vintage silks.  They dont make them like they used to.) and the Shirt is a Grey twill.

Swpa the tie out for the Burnt Orange/Rust Taffeta and Raw Silk Stripe number… (I love that tie) and tone the square down a notch (or you dont have to) and you get this: (as an aside the tie works really well with a black or charcoal Grey suit)

Swap the square for one from the vintage group ( Also not on the site) for this look:  This gives the contrast on the breast along with the orange complementing the tie.

A real burst of orange in the tie will yield this.  may just be too much.  Incidentally, the tie is a little darker than this shows like you see in the linked photo.

If orange is not your thing then try livening the black up with some plum colored articles, be it the tie (Again this is for more fashion related jobs and not your usual Law Firm office) to get this look:

And Adding to the tie the Crepe White Silk Square with Burgundy Hand Stitching.  (I swaped out the shirt here for a fine plum stripe but the gray works as well).

To add a little more life to the square, keep the tie and add the Satin Silk Square with hand rolled edges.

And shown with the same square simply reversed.
