If you just don't like the tie, that's fine, but I'd prefer to hear from those who have suggestions on better pairings.

Great tie. The dots really "pop" making a nice graphic/geometric statement. But you are right, it isn't working with that suit.

Try:
1) Navy blazer
2) Ivory linen jacket


I would avoid pin stripes and windowpane patterns but I bet it would look sensational with a solid colored herringbone weave fabric.

I would wear it with a solid colored probably white PS. The pattern is strong enough that I don't think you want to compete with it.

When you showed us the photo on your phone, the jacket looked to be pure yellow, but on my monitor now, it's a little more like chartreuse - which is correct? A VERY powerful color to tame down into a 'fit, boychik - it may still be there when you next come to NYC . . .

Jus' askin' . . .
Next time, Tirailleur, definitely to be invited . . .

Thanks, Gus! I almost wore it with my ivory suit on Friday. I'll have to give that a whirl.

As for the omission of T-Rex from last night's festivities...

I have a the same tie but in a lighter shade I usually wear it with a solid charcoal or navy suit.

I sincerely like both ties. If anything the darker is the bolder and you able to get away with taht against a interesting but not loud jaket and minor shirt balance. 2nd looks more at ease.

A metaphor might be that the first is a swift slap across the face, and the second a caress.
