I don't think this would cause raised eyebrows in even pretty conservative offices. Personally I'd prefer a darker tie, but I don't think the one you are wearing

I think much of that is the awkward pose.

Very pale lilac/lavender would definitely be considered CBD in the UK. I think light mauve would be stretching it, but not necessarily looked down upon in an otherwise relatively sombre outfit. Do remember that in otherwise conservative offices, where brown shoes are still frowned upon, bold Duchamp ties would not get a second-glance though

Anyone who would notice a dot tie is probably just happy it's not a Rush Limbaugh/Jerry Garcia-style monstrosity.

Don't have any trouble with dots for interviews, either.

I'm not a big fan of white linen, but I think both ways can work.

I'd have said a dot-tie was perfectly suitable for an interview.

For my purposes, the best way to do a TV fold is not to. Will is a bit more pedantic about the issue today:

Actually, I'm just as pedantic, but I want to appear open-minded. Anyway, Pink does a nice job above:

They probably feel the same way about a pocket square glued to a piece of cardboard.

I like that, oldog. Your style seems to live right at the edge of CBD... mixing formal and informal elements deftly. Like you went to the office for a few phone calls, then off to a leisurely lunch. I like it very much.

I like lavender when it's really pale or has a bluish cast. And as long as all the other elements are conservative.
Looks good with navy. Don't know if lavender is CBD or not, but Acrids shirt is too dark for his tie which should be replaced by something more business-y for that pinstripe suit.

Thanks much; but how did you get access to my calendar?

Nice boots. I suppose this begs the question can boots ever be CBD?

Not with a capital C, I'd say. Though some chukkas and chelseas can pass in a lower c environment.

Bal boots are too unusual to pass the capital C test, IMO.
