Tie - BB
Cufflinks - Niletti Creations, NYC

I think the white linen square is a good choice in this context. I find browns work nicely with purple, so with a different suit (e.g. blue), you might try something in that range (e.g. something similar to SB and CD's sand/brown Drake's square).

Notice anything different in the above shot, Rudals? :-)

Yo. What width is that tie? Also, I honestly dont think that is the best tie colour.

Anyway, some cellphone selfies:

Clags, what a fantastic, autumnal color palette here! Really well done!

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?
