Tie By Tie 8 (Natural Progressions)


From the not so conventional charcoal suit/pink shirt/burgundy tie we progressed to the charcoal suit/blue shirt/ burgundy tie.  The natural course of progression would be switching the grey suit for a navy suit while leaving the burgundy tie.  I switched the square for one that works well with most colors but especially so with navy. (Bear in mind that in a regular situation the square wouldnt be sticking this far out of the pocket but more like the pictures below as in the red and brown ties).

Here is a detail of the square:

Which progresses to the red tie in the same design with that same suit, shirt and square:

Naturally progressing to the brown tie. (while I am a big fan of brown paired with blue, this brown happens to have a blue weft which makes it especially fitting for pairing with a blue shirt)

Within Striking Distance


A customer requested some suggestions for a Black suit, White shirt, that would make the outfit “striking”.

Here are my suggestions. (Customer rarely wears a square so I felt it safe to go with a white linen square which is always nice and safe).

First up is the Taffetta Rust with raw silk stripes.  I love this tie and  I dont think that its fully understood.  Its Sharp, Its different and its got POP!

Another great combo.  A rich plum, almost fuscia and dark pinkish stripe.  The fabric is also unique giving it almost a wrinkled look, but oh so nice.

Nothing like oldies but goodies.  Rusty red with a gold braided stripe here.  Great irridescent depth to the tie due to the different colored warp and weft.  A classic pattern for FIH.

Hey, we have seen this feller before.  But he is certainly still makes the grade.  A crisp satin base rust and beige make it a great popping tie against the black and white.

Should be peachy but pictured like an orange.

This is a true orange.  Not on the site it seems.  But close to it is this.

Last but not least is this paisley stripe,  an amazing tie up close  when you get to see all that is happening in there.
