Nice image titles...rough morning? I really like the colors of the suit, shirt & tie. Very complementary.
LOL. Another commute from hell on the longest concrete turd in the world.

Probably. It is a little rumpled...but that is just Sprezz.....

BTW, love your file name for this photo...
Not with this tie. I have tried this tie with a blue shirt and it goes from looking like a great Barba 7 fold, which it is, to a polyester special when paired with a solid blue shirt. I have paired the suit with a blue shirt though....
I suspect you'll get some stick for that tie, but I like it.
Thanks for the comment, and yes, you are prescient in your remarks - see below:

The tie is a printed silk, not a brocade, and striped ties of any description are very scarce on the ground in my wardrobe, as I have a penchant for striped shirts, and striped shirts and ties don't always work and play well together.
The one green regimental stripe tie that would have worked with the SC and the shirt, I wore the last time I wore the SC, hence the variation.
I was more concerned with the color combination than the levels of formality, and a printed silk tie vs. a woven silk regimental is not a difference in level of formality that I recognize - thus, I respectfully disagree, but thanks for your opinion.
