I would agree. Other than that it's a pretty nice fit. You really are learning something, good buddy.
 

Thanks guys. I agree, it wouldn't have been my first choice on the colour, but I liked the texture and I felt something like this would add to my tie collection rather than take away from it!

the texture is indeed nice. id recommend wearing it with a navy jacket though, it think that would be a much more complimentary combination.

FTR - i like purple ties. they just need to be worn selectively imo.

Purple is not my first choice for color in ties, something a bit more dandyish about it, but try it with a brown sports coat if you have one, just to see how the colors go together.

edit: or with navy, as stitches says. But brown might surprise you (a richer brown in this case).

Will try with navy next time out.

 

Don't have a brown SC or suit but am hoping to get some new threads soon so who knows...

Pliny that's a gorgeous tie.  Can I have it?  You are the definition of perfect tie/PS balance today.  Love it.

i agree with you as well btw, it might be very cool with the right shade/hue of brown, but i think navy will be easier to not screw up.

as always, love that jacket, pliny.

Cary Grant is dead, and probably wore nylon undercrackers.  There are limits to reverence for our heroes of yesterday.

 

Where is the tie from?

post #68606 of 78718
i dont think its bad, but its definitely on the busy side.
post #68607 of 78718
For the blue on blue challenge I present blue on blue on blue on blue.





(white PS would be better, but 'tis a challenge after all)

So I am in PAris for the week. Any recommendations on where to go, shop, eat?

For a museum to which almost no one goes, which is a shame, as it's a good museum - Musee du Petit Palais (Ave. Winston Churchill - between the Champs-Elysees and the Seine).

To shop - take a look at Septieme Largeur for shoes - 59 Rue St. Lazare (near the Trinite Metro stop on Ligne #12, I think).

To eat in total grandeur - have lunch (if you can) at Le Meurice at the Hotel Meurice. The set menu lunch is 120 euros, but the food is worth it - hell, the room is worth it - second in grandeur for dining venues only to Les Ambassadeurs at the Crillon, which is closed for a total rehab - the hotel as well as the restaurant.

Let's go blue!
This won't qualify for the contest, but it is a tangent of the theme.
The tie is a dark navy. The PS is blue.
