Pick one of these ties for my groomsmen?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My wedding's coming up in a few months; I've fought off the bride's/family's requests for matching tuxes and instructed my groomsmen to wear their own charcoal suits. I'll be supplying them with MOP cufflinks and white pocket squares from Kent Wang to complete the ensemble. I know how bleh matching things can be -- still, I'd like to show my future in-laws some respect of their request by supplying the groomsmen with some ties that complement the bridesmaids' dresses (attached). My only criteria are 1) avoiding that shiny satin prom look, and 2) giving them a quality tie that they'll be able to wear in the future. With that in mind, I'm considering the following: 1) Drakes Pink/White Pencil Stripe 2) CT Price of Wales Purple Tie 3) Les Copains Lilac Microstripe - Yoox only lets me add 1 to the cart, so this is probably a no-go. Would appreciate your opinions on these, or any other ties you think might look nice. Thanks in advance.

of the 3 you have shown I would choose No 1, but to be honest I think this would be a lot better more contrast and not so insipid.

Drakes

I could have asked him if he checked out any Wangs lately.

"Have you looked at Kent's Wang lately? Good stuff. Definitely worth the money."

For serious, though: Why pink or lilac with charcoal suits? If you were doing navy suits, I could understand the desire for pastels. But charcoal doesn't harmonize especially well with pinks and purples. A lot of folks out there will tell you otherwise, but they're wrong. I have yet to see a picture of a charcoal suit with pink or purple tie that wouldn't look remarkably better with a rich navy suit.
