Has anyone gone for the Large Prince Of Wales Silk Tie #15 yet? Looking at this and it looks interesting but I'm not entirely sure. If anyone has it, how does it compare to the pic on the site? And would it be possible to get a picture of it in the wild? I apologize if this has been posted about, I've been absent for a little bit and haven't caught up with the backlog of posts since I was last here.
I already have Dressing the Man, which touches on it, but focuses more on the degree of contrast etc than on the actual colors. Is this dealt with more extensively in Style and The Man?And a more general question of Style and The Man, if I already have Dressing The Man as well as Bernhard Routzel's Gentleman, is it worth it getting Style and The Man, or will there just be repetition of the other ones?
Heh no I'm not colorblind, I just find that I have a good eye for matching together colors and patterns, but I find that I often don't take myself into account, so I'll be wearing someting which I love on it's own, only to notice that it makes me look old, tired and washed out. Slight exaggeration there, but you know what I mean. I'm with you on the shirt front, but the shirts I like I can't get where I live, so it's internet or nothing. I mostly go for blues as they're...
That's a fantastic rose/pink color for that shade of grey
I was thinking I should subscribe to The Rake, but are there any promotional offers for styleforum members or anything similar? The Rake seems like a sensible thing to subscribe to, but I want this to cut into my tie-budget as little as possible.
Trying to figure out what my colours are. What I should be wearing the most to make me look good, what I should be avoiding at all costs, and what I can wear for variety without looking too silly. There are so many ties and shirts I want to wear, but I'd rather like to avoid the ones that make me look terrible, and as I do a lot of my shopping online (from places I know where I know how the fit is), I often have no chance to look at the color and hold it against my skin to...
Good choice, the burgundy is very beautiful as well. In fact the only reason I didn't go for it myself was that I was leaning towards getting a scarf made in the same fabric, then after I decided on something else for the scarf I sort of forgot about it, but it may warrant revisiting. I have a suspicion that the burgundy would look fantastic with a "wooly" type of navy suit, pink shirt and white square. Think the square and the white dots would each make the other pop.Be...
I love that tie, really wonderful. What I love about it (that doesn't appear in photos) is the shininess of the woven white dots. Rather than sitting there as flat white spots, they really pop because of the lustre of the white silk. I have it myself and I really regret not getting it in 6-fold.
Misery loves company, don't you know?If I'm going to be broke and destitute, I'm taking you guys with me!On a somewhat related note, 3 new hobers...
Absolutely. I'm hardly an expert on silk-printing, but in my experience what often happens is that the printing dye ends up "covering" the silk in a way, giving it color but muting it's vibrancy. With the madders from Sam Hober, the dye is really soaked through, so you don't see the dye but rather the silk with it's full lustre. I was surprised when I got my first madder because I can't actually tell what the original color of the silk is and what is printed color, because...
