I just hate that it gets no wear. grabbing at straws.
welp. ya win some you lose some. too much losing for me lately hahaha
I've mentioned it before, but I'm not a fan of fuzzy tie + fuzzy jacket when they're separated by a businessy-looking shirt. It makes the tie look like an island, somehow. It needs a more casual shirt. Or something to reduce the expanse of relative formality of shirt (eg a v-neck jumper or cardigan). Otherwise, a still-matte but non-fuzzy tie works better IMO. A good example of this would be look stitchy posted today. Fuzzy jacket, flat shirt, and a tie that bridges the two without falling into either camp. I like that (& have quoted it below for reference).
The shirt is kind of a rough oxford weave. I don't know if that came through in the pictures, but would that still classify as businessy? Thanks for the tips, I will definitely try and figure out how I would like to implement those ideas!
That would certainly solve the issue I mentioned, if indeed it actually comes across as that rougher oxford weave in person, to someone sitting across the table for you and not just from a few inches away.
My pleasure, and I really did like your tie choice with today's fit a lot in terms of its texture/weave. It bridged the shirt & jacket materials very nicely. Mind you, if I was being ultra-picky, I'd suggest the same tie in a colour two notches darker, but it's certainly still pleasing as is. That's not damning with faint praise, by the way; I genuinely liked it.
