i was wondering about that. my instinct was to reach for the brown tie from you, but i already did that combo and i wanted to change it up. plus i have not worn this tie all season and i like it.
i had hoped:
1. the brown stripe in the tie would be enough shoe/beard color to work.
2. the largely spread apart stripes would work.
perhaps i was mistaken.
One might cite a "rule" which this goes against, I suppose. Nevertheless it has a logic, and to my eye this works in the same way one of your previous fits worked, one which some people (not I) thought a bit too matchy: from the top down the beard, tie, and shoes all seem to belong to the same family. There's a pattern to it, and it contrasts with the suit.
In a word, this works for me because it looks *purposeful*, not accidental. But it's not the kind of thing concerning which one can expect unanimous agreement.
( I do agree it's a lovely suit, by the way).
