Thanks, Pliny! Kenzo, actually. Sorry, had a long post and it got erased. Essentially - I think that tie is a "fun" item, and I'm certainly not against incorporating those items into an outfit (i.e. - Master's green jacket), especially in the Spring/Summer months, I just think the rest should be toned down. Just my two shekels.
I feel like if you are going to wear that tie, everything else needs to be toned waaay down. Could probably keep the shirt, but I agree with you that if it is going to work it has to be paired with a navy blazer or something similarly soporific.
