I hope you don't mind me bumping this, I'm a big fan of neckties myself and love to see other people's favourites. Here are some of mine: A green houndstooth design, and quite a slim tie. It looks absolutely gorgeous with a light blue shirt and charcoal suit. I just don't want to overwear it because I KNOW I'll end up going off it It's a pink/white/blue stripe from Paul Smith. Unfortunately, that picture makes it look rather odd in shape, and the knot is...
Hi, I know it's meant to be the middle of summer over here in England, but it's been raining all week, and it's got me thinking about my Autumn/Winter purchases - number one on the list is still a nice overcoat, my current one is rather too cheap and cheery, and doesn't rate particularly high on the tasteful/durable/stylish scale. The real criteria are: - fits a 36/38 chest size - is formal enough to wear with a suit - dark navy/black Apart from that, it can be...
I'm liking the looks so far (except for the navy suit with light blue pinstripes - I've never liked that type of fabric). It's always nice to see someone who looks effortlessly good in suits in a position to wear all of the finest ones available

Hi, I know these 'help me match a tie with a shirt' etc. topics are exceedingly annoying, so I'll try to keep mine brief. I recently purchased a green houndstooth style tie (no idea why, spur of the moment ) Anyway, I have attached two pictures below, and would be interested in hearing what shirts you think it would go well with - aside from white. Many thanks indeed, Dep
I'm fairly sure this forum doesn't consider a full windsor knot to be the most formal: in fact, I'm fairly sure the knot of choice here is indeed the four-in-hand
I'd also recommend a gingham in blue, though that's probably not Top 4 overall

Every piece is a real tie, yet they're 8 feet high? Does he use the BFG's ties or something
