And I don't mean small-scale neats, I mean those mid-size geometrics from the mid-90s and those really large-scale prints from the early 90s (copies/derivatives of the fabled Hermes "scarf ties"). Basically, the kinds of prints SF hates. I bet that you're going to see a lot of them appearing in shops over the next few years. My reasoning is firstly the 20yr fashion cycle, but more importantly, printed women's dresses are really big at the moment and men's fashion will catch that trend up soon. You can see harbingers of this already: Paul Smith has a few, Drakes has loads e.g 1, 2, 3, 4. All those are on nature themes (animals, florals, etc), but I sense that mid-scale (and maybe even large-scale) abstract geometrics will also make a comeback.

It kind of annoys me, because then my kind of ugly tie will be everywhere and I'll have to wear sedate ties until the trend dies back down again. But I''ll use it as a chance to stock up. devil.gif

Anyone wanting to get ahead of the trend should scoop up nicer examples on eBay/etc now, while prices are still cheap.
good lord. if you ever see me wearing one of those, please be sure to use your professional powers and have me forcibly committed.

I could see myself wearing some of these drake's florals when attending summer weddings, though.

 

That's how it starts.... devil.gif

#4 is very wearable.

That's all we needed to hear. Let's get him sectioned Holdfast!

 

And this is how it ends! Someone call an AMHP and let's get it done. :D

 

Seriously though, the florals/nature prints are definitely on an upswing at the moment. Pre-hype sort of slow boil stage. Give it a year or two and we'll see many more. Then they'll get larger scale. And then we'll get the really big prints back again for a while. They won't be used in the same way as they were in the 90s, with relatively formal outfits, but more with casual tailored items and even in more urban outfits. Everything old is new again; it's really a rehash of the 70s echoing via the 90s into an updated version today. Give it a year or three to bubble up.

Also, I picked up the tie this winter and I'm finally getting around to wearing it.

Your pick Good tie Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm having a hard time understanding how the above is good and the other paisleys are bad? Is it due to the suit and ps?
cheers.gif

all my picks were chosen simply based on the merit of the tie alone. i felt they were bad ties regardless of what they would be paired with. not all ugly per say, but bad.

as to that specific tie being good, see below. smile.gif

@YRR92, thank you for the input. I personally liked the shirt and tie as well as the jacket and tie. But I can see why the shirt may seem a little busy with the jacket to some. Still I'm not sure what's wrong with the shirt itself, I really like it :) perhaps you can explain?

change out the buttons to a contrasting brown horn may help dD, but really, a solid charcoal odd jacket, even when it fits as well as that one, is prob  the least wearable u can have.  Be good as part of a suit tho

Even if it sucks to hear it, I always appreciate feedback or criticism as I think we're always learning. So thank you to yourself and to all the others in this thread for their feedback. I came into these forums after 10 years of working in the business world and kind of figuring things out on my own along the way and finally decided to step up my work wear game. I thought I had a good handle on colors and textures from having a background in painting/illustration/design but sometimes that doesn't translate into "classic" menswear. Admittedly I have a lot to learn and a long way to go. Within the boundaries of my budget, I'll get there. That being said. I do have to ask you about your good ties vs bad ties biggrin.gif Help me out here:

apart from that it works with this tweed, this paisley's a two-tone.  Narrow spectrum, matte, muted +  paired with sedate fit = :satisfied: IMO
