Stitchy - I'd personally say that's a good night out tie, not one for a daytime look. Jacquard ties are tricky at the best of time, but their shimmering details work best for me in the evening. Cream shirt, navy suit, similar sort of dark brown shoes, (and a particularly flouncy pale coloured square, though given your feelings on handkerchiefs, I put that firmly within parentheses). You can even keep the socks!
thanks HF, its really a sit in the drawer tie until a friday challenge beckons.
My intent was to wear a bold tie but not be gaudy about it - I could have pulled a Versace out and murdered it. But, I wanted to do something that was cohesive, which I think is much harder to accomplish than throwing on, oh, a pink cashmere attolini tie.
