The shirt is actually pink on pink. But what you said about the tie is dead on. My collection of ties is almost entirely on that level of formality. I have very few color options when it comes to rougher more casual ties. I added quite a few in October, but I'm trying to do MoL's challenge for November/December. Fortunately, my birthday was last Tuesday, and I gave my fiance a dozen or so options from HY and KW, so I should be getting a few more informal ties in the next week.
It's odd...I love ties, but I don't need to wear a suit anymore. I had all these ties sitting around that I love but don't get to wear too much...basically whenever it was cool enough to wear a cardigan. I had a decent number of odd jackets as well, but I generally wore those without ties (I have no idea why). I joined SF so I could figure out a way to wear all my ties again without being reliant on cardigans and without needing to wear a full suit. Instead, I find myself buying more ties. I mean, I'm totally happy about buying more ties. I love ties...
but damn you SF!
If UCBD = ultra conservative business dress...you are sort of right.
I used to work in a very large Korean logistics company, which is why I have all the formal suiting left over. Totally CBD. Any ounce of individuality in my outfits would be scrutinized as I was white in a Korean company. As far as the "sort of"...during the summer, everybody wears short sleeve collared shirts. I was the only one in long sleeves most of the time because fuck if I'm wearing short sleeves and a tie. Oh yeah, and the taste in ties here is just bloody awful.
I actually have a couple architect friends here and they dress very SF WAYWRN.
Now I research and teach, so quite a bit less formal. I don't even need to wear a tie unless I have a meeting or something.
Hi gents! This is as of yesterday. I was all the day at the office, so I tried this combo (luckily for me, at the office there are not to many people). I wanted to try it, cuase that shirt I don't know with what tie I could use it with a blue suit. I think a lighter grey tie would work fine. But any other colour recommendations? Thanks!
