HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4984  

post #74746 of 78722

Got a new pair of shoes from Spain, Emidio Tucci. Very nice and very comfortable, not expensive either.

 

 

Massimo Bizzocchi tie (posted this recently enough):

 

 

Here we are in the sun:

By the afternoon, the sun is supposed to be out, and the high temp's in NYC are supposed to be around 18C/64F. I am going to see if I can survive without an overcoat today. Wish me luck

The sun has finally started to shine, and to mark this momentous occasion I decided to pair my loudest tie, courtesy of Yellow Hook Neckties, with a linen/cotton DB. I think I've paired this tie better than the last time I wore it, but you'll be the judge.

that is a great example of a cool tie that is reeeeally hard to use, and i applaud you for employing it so well.

Yes, it does comes every year, but the first few weeks of getting re-acclimated does always suck.

I'm not sure... I agree with Stitch that this is a hard tie to work with (as you know yourself). Blue is a safe background palette to work with: navy and perhaps a shade of brown in the SC might work as well with the bright red. Linen, linen/cotton for sure. The shirt I'm less sure about...the smaller checks might be a bit more formal pulling away from the tie, but I'm also thinking that you don't need any more checks in the fit given the strength of the pattern in the tie. Just thinking out loud. A good effort. One has to challenge oneself!

 

Oh....I have the same SC.:embar:

Thanks! It's indeed incredibly hard to use. The only two successful times have been with a plain grey woo/linen suit and this airforce blue blazer. I've tried a navy blazer before, but it just looks too gaudy. 

 

@TweedyProf, thanks for the advice! I always thought checks made a shirt less formal than its plain counterpart. What's the consensus on this? 

I'll definitely experiment some more with this tie now that the weather is getting nicer!

i had thought the same, but apparently a graph check like that leans towards city/business, not casual. i dont think its egregious here, though not optimal either. slightly busy, slightly clashing in formality, but it still looks nice enough to be a success in my book.

So a plain white shirt would've been optimal? I suppose a bigger scale check would clash with the tie. Sorry, just trying to find out how to wear this tie best. It's proven to be quite a challenge!

I was thinking more the range of sizes of checks. I learned this from looking at two of Stitch's fits when I asked about checks in another thread (Noodle's?): he had a small navy check and a larger lighter blue check. Larger checks, more informal. The juxtaposition was useful to see why.

 

The small checks you have would look nice with a solid or less strongly patterned tie. I take it that you're becoming less informal with the smaller checks there. But mostly, I think it makes the fit more busy than you need, given the tie. I can imagine why with navy they tie might seem too gaudy. Perhaps try a brown SC, not too dark. Any, just some thoughts.

Solid for sure...the tie has lots of energy so the other elements should avoid this (at least the shirt and SC).
