Light colored ties - I admit I don't ged it. - Page 2

post #16 of 24
I have to say I'm not a fan of them either. While they don't look ugly, I feel like there's never a situation where I'd personally pick one over a darker tie. If I had one, it would sit in my closet and I'd keep saying, "Next time."

oldog wears the light tie very well. Try looking for his pictures. I think they look best when they're more muted colors with a white shirt and a cotton suit.

I feel like any time a lighter tie would look good, a darker one would look better.

how about this one...?

I thought the yellow really popped out of the blue and grey.

I think one thing that can make a big difference is a light colored suit. Some combos don't look bad persay with a dark suit, but a medium to light gray, that light blue linen suit posted earlier, perhaps a beige suit if it suits your skintone, they can look outstanding. As for aj's ties, how about a tan shirt and a ligther gray suit? Nice pair of medium brown shoes, perhpas suede, that could be a fantastic look.

Yellow ties are classic and have a place in every mans wardrobe. I even wore light pink...some years ago.

This is exactly the sort of thing that I don't understand. In my opinion, there is little contrast between the shirt and the tie (especially relative to the dark jacket). It just grates against me. With a lighter toned jacket, I completely understand yellow with lavender or green with magenta. With a dark jacket, when you have light grey or cream on near-white i feel like it's too similar to white-on-white.
