I have a bias against combining city suits with burgundy ties (reminds me too much of the 80s and of politicians) or earth toned ties (reminds me too much of the 90s).  My two sartorial touchstones are the late 50s and the 30s, and it's rare to find those burgundy or earth toned ties matched with city suits (as opposed to tweeds or country suits) in photographs of the best dressers from those times.  

 

 

Thx all! I was intentionally going for the dark somber look. I wanted to the tie to blend in with the suit. I tend to shy away from ties that look like a sore thumb.

You should stop being shy on that. Make sure to step away from the shiny ties and go for it. Vanda and Panta (har har) are the ones I like the most. Sam Hober is good too. 

 

Panta is my current favorite with the muted colors on the Neat pattern. The orange/rust came in last week and it's my second favorite tie in my collection. Guess what my first and thirds are?.. Panta.

No, it doesn't affect it at all, and I have a few lined Drakes grenadines as a direct comparison. I'd say it drapes even better than the lined ones, although it is slightly more informal.

Ah yes, but I was aiming in blend in my tie into to the suit. Let me try a grey tie to see how it looks. Omgosh, I am church and Sunday school kids are pulling at my jacket!!!

I don't think I just know any better at this point. I'll put up something to see if I can put some contrast between the tie and the suit.

If you want to go for a more tone-on-tone look, Sean Connery, Tom Ford, and the 1950s Cary Grant would be inspirations.  If you like more color and pattern, the Duke of Windsor and Fred Astaire are exemplars.  Ralph Lauren, when he's dressing for himself in a suit, can fall in either group.

And texture never hurts. Grenadines, knits, raw silk, etc.

Sean Connery, yes. And you may laugh at this but I like the looks from Skyfall and maybe the previous two Bond movies as well.

The only things I like about the Skyfall looks were the tab collar shirts, the rest was way too tight for him and/or just didn't fit well in general. The Brioni era was much, much better.

The combinations--suit, shirt, tie--were mostly not bad. The actual fits, obviously, were atrocious. Will be up there with Roger Moore's bell bottoms and Timothy Dalton's triple pleats in terms of poorly-remembered fashion suits.

Just picked up my very first pair of double monk and trying to figure out the best way to rock it. Was a bit unsure wearing it with a suit, however I think I nailed it with the odd jacket look. Is it SF approved? Please excuse the gym room.

You are right ebonyman! You just have to rock them..but Im finding more and more, that monks for my personal preference are better suited for more casual settings..I had a division meeting in San Fran this weekend and the dress code was a strict business casual. Meaning, no tie.. dress shirts and slacks were permitted as well as sports coats..the weather was actually pretty nice in SF this weekend so I threw on my unlined unstructured cotton S.C..thats one thing I dont have enough of.. Sports Coats.. thats going to be a huge focus for me next year.. oh well..Sorry for the poor lighting as well.. had to take this inside the hotel and rush off to my meeting
