It's far from horrible, but (as I suspect you know far better than I) it is far from an SF-approved type of tie.  It's the type of tie I really embrace in the spring after a long, dull, grey winter.  Drab solids and muted greadines have their place, but so does the occasional bold pattern and bright (well, light, anyway) colour.  Variety is good.

i tend to line up with this school of thought. I think its nice to add some color/pattern sometimes and break out of the solids and SF approved stuff.

I, too, like some color and pattern. But that pattern is nope.

In the back it prevents the buttons being pressed into my flesh when driving.

 

Screw them, man. Those trousers look great and that's how 3-piece suit pants should be. Big like.

As much as I like color and pattern in ties, and do not hew closely at all the local Gemeinschaft in these matters, today's tie is not one that I would have chosen for myself, certainly. It is not as heinous as others may find it, but there are better bright ties out there in the world - at least IMHO.

Sorry, friend.

You got May 1st and 2nd, though it would be better to wait until May 29th to make sure you really want it wink.gif

It's incredibly sunny out today (20C), so it seems like spring has finally arrived!

I don't think the tie is necessarily terrible. I think too much of the rather ostentatious pattern is visible.  Under a sweater or vest it could be a nice pop of color without being so overpowering.

Maybe I will have the pants hemmed, nothing else to do.

Or the square.

Hmm... not a square fail (I know how picky you are with squares). The navy runs through the jacket so no fail.
