Looks too long in the body, not ridiculous, but with the sleeves worse, it probably should be returned in favor of something with shorter dimensions.
Well, it's been interesting and people haven't gotten very hostile. In reviewing the first post, he's probably in the UK. It would make sense if yellow ties are less popular there than in the USA. Also, the good thing about ties is that there are so many options that nobody should feel compelled to wear a color he doesn't like.
Actually, for men with the right coloring, pink deserves serious consideration as a summer tie, matte and not necessarily in pure silk.
Yellow and pink can look bad on some men, much to do with personal coloring. Gold is the safest shade of yellow, and yellow is better in a pattern than as a solid. Dislike for pink seems more based on associations, such as types of people who wear or the colors often worn with it (e.g., black shirt), as well as the satin finish that many pink ties have.
Black tie is more a formal tie (or something for a punk rocker). Yellow and pink ties are far more common as business wear and arguably could be part of a starter tie wardrobe (but probably should not be worn to interviews). If people want to say that black is okay in paisley or some other patterns or as a knit, okay, but it is never a business basic. "Trendy" doesn't mean "out of style" soon. Some items are always around and sometimes trends become the norm - but most...
Subtract "black" from that list and brighten it up a bit (yellow or pink would be better and optional), and it trumps PTO's advice. The MIC site is still having problems [time for a technical investigation], but that material is in the article. It tries to steer people away from the loud mistakes (in color and shine and tasteless patterns).
Read the article on the website (if the site is functioning properly, grr). Unlike many articles (oversimplified, biased, or whatever), it doesn't strictly prescribe because everyone and every situation are different. In general, it's better to warn against doing specific things (e.g., satin for regular business) than to push specific things. Color and pattern (including enough variety) are more important (and easier-to-shop) starting points than texture. Grenadine, by the...
They're not "needed." Many respected business tie rotations have few if any of those items. The only right thing about that idea is textural variety, which barely requires any effort.
That series has a strange idea of "basics." None of those, aside from the "solid" regular silk, is needed for business.
Big problem, pun intended: there's no size information, only a vague hint at not being overweight. Jos. A. Bank suits and (better idea) sportcoats sometimes can be found online for little money (avoid x-for-1 sales) and the Signature quality is okay and they should be tried on locally first, but whether their fit would be too boxy.... It sounds like they would need to be taken in at the waist, which should not be that expensive. Something decent at Nordstrom Rack likely...
