That Drakes tie would work very well with a white shirt especially because it has some white in the pattern, but without seeing your exact tie I can't say for sure. Slight shifts in color do matter. All that being said, don't wear a yellow tie without a good tan. Yellow ties tend to make people look washed out without a bit of a bronze glow.

I'd encourage you to discuss this with your shirtmaker. All the custom shirtmakers I've worked with built in an allowance for shrinkage. Different fabric responds differently with oxfords typically shrinking a 1/4" and fine poplins 1/8' or so in the collar. Their RTW shirts, such as a 16 neck are actually a 16.25, to allow for this.

I mess up all the time but it doesn't matter since everyone is focused on their own deal. I'm so relaxed afterwards and I seem to burn a ton of calories. As soon as the weather became nice I...
Received my order of white suede bucks with red Dianite soles. Surprised that they run too narrow for me across the smaller toes (especially because British shoes tent to run a bit on the wider side and my foor is a bit narrow). Toe box shape is a bit more V shape than the angle in the online photo shows. Bummed, was really wanting these to work out as I have wanted this unicorn combination for some time. There are various red sole white bucks but not with red Dianite....
Good!
