You and shugz said the same thing about this tie the last time I wore it. Any recs as to what it would look good with? I actually had a brown/black glen plaid tie on and changed to this tie. There is royal blue in the pocket square and I added the silk knot to tie it all in. Oh, well.
My unsolicited two cents, to me that is a nighttime city tie, and your outfit is a daytime countryish, quasi professorial one.
I don't love the tie, but if I had to wear it, I would do so with a dark outfit out on the town. With a solid suit or velvet jacket out to a martini bar or the like.
Anywhere a twenty something girl in a black dress that barely reaches below her buttocks looks out of place, that tie will look out of place.
