I like this look. While it is monochromatic, it does look very elegant. However, since we are approaching fall season, and especially if you go out on a rainy day, a burgundy or olive green tie would top off that suit beautifully. Pattern wise this is a great combination as you have a plaid tie with a solid shirt and a solid suit! I like the look overall!
I like the tie a lot. The lighter ground matches your suit color very well, and the darker color provides contrast. My favorite outfit of yours so far, one that I would be happy to wear.
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.
