So, I made some searches, and found out that the color of a tie should be darker than a shirt. So, may be this is a better combination? Very thin stripe jacket+pale blue shirt+tie. 

 

P.S. I have a problem tying a tie... the knot always seem to be too big, and crooked.

Your tie knot does not look too big, you could even do another turn to make it a DFIH, and the knot should be skew/asymmetrical, but centred in the V of your collar.

I think you look smart but there would be better contrast with the white shirt picking up the white edge of your P:S and the stripes in your suit and your tie, and the would be more contrast with this tie and make it look better as well.

Like the PS, looks cool.

anyway enough from me for now.. :)

I guess it's the same thing as pocket squares themselves, which less knowledgeable folks consider a "formal" accesory, when in reality the most formal city look is no PS at all...

1. you have no idea what you're talking about.

2. that doesn't explain your previous post about the bowtie + BD in the least.

Orgetorix, it wasn't my post, I'm actually with you on this one! smile.gif

 

I meant that a lot of people think of a PS as a "formal" accesory (which I think it isn't, at least not in an inherent way), and what Roger Everett said about bow ties seems to be in the same line of thinking.

Sorry, didn't mean to jump on you. smile.gif

Neither bow ties nor pocket squares have any inherent formality or informality about them. Both can be formal; both can be informal. It depends on the color, pattern, material, and application.

I don't believe it's a so called "rule", but I never wear ties of any kind with buttoned collars. I personally just don't like the way it looks. But I see so many people doing it that they must see something in it that I do not.

I like BD collars with more casual options, like a tweed jacket with a challis tie, or with a bow tie (though I can't pull of a bow myself, but I like it when others do). Not with a formal tie + suit, though that seems rather common in America, so it may be OK over there.

Espero que eso de "Did someone called Security?" sea broma, por que, nunca alguien de seguridad, al menos aquí en México, se viste así. I like the combo!

Es broma! No guardias de seguridad dress like that here either. But navy blazer + grey trousers is seen as the "security guard look" in this forum, right? smile.gif

Viva Mexico!
