Why not showing any shirt cuff with such a nice suit?
Personally wouldn't wear a paisley tie with a loud windowpane like that. A little too "F U"
Solid tie is probably best
This is an old one for me so at this point I can only go by what is on the tag. 95% wool 5% cashmere. Sorry I can't be more specific. As an aside, does your name refer to Pliny the younger or the elder? Big classical history buff.
