interesting observation, i liked it though. thought it added some color and excitement to the muted gray suit. but as always, i welcome suggestions. next time i wear that suit ill try a darker tie. maybe something with shades of brown.

i like that casual look, and i love the beard!
Re: the orange tie, I like it as a colour, and also with that colour suit... but the relatively high top button means only a little shows. If this was, say, a lower buttoning 2B (or even a somewhat lower buttoning 3B) jacket, more of the tie would show and I think that would be better. It's not the colour that's the problem to me; it's that not quite enough of it shows to visually balance the sober suit. Maybe I'm being weird...
