Shirt/Tie color coordination and fit critique

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Before, I always wore similar colored ties with my shirts, but recently I've been experimenting with different color combinations. What do you think of the coordination of the attachments?

These shirts are from Moderntailor, so I'm looking for any advice about whether any measurements need changing, so I can improve it for next time.

The last pictures are a suit I purchased recently. I asked for the arm length a little long, because I spend a lot of time in my job pointing upwards for presentations. My last suit, though perfect with my arms down, looked ridiculously short when I raised my arms. What do you think about this fit?

Thank you for any critique.

terrible tie knot...I would make the knot have more of a triangle effect if you're going for a large knot

the shirt and tie combos look ok

as does the fit of the shirt

Holy fuck. Learn how to properly tie a knot.

To be fair, I did tie the tie and put on the shirt very quickly just to take pictures, but point taken!

The color combinations look fine to me, but I think that tie width and knot size look ridiculous on someone of your slim stature.

How wide are those, like 5''? No, seriously, I would like to know. The knot is throwing off my sense of proportion. Please measure them at the base.

To be honest, that knot disturbs the hell outta' me.

Ok, I understand the knot doesn't look good. What style of knot would you recommend?

this
you need slimmer ties and a better knot

also - as long as you like the colour combo, then that's all that matters

Anything really. The problem here isn't the style of knot, it's that you tied it hella loose. Also, you're a thin guy and those ties are huge. I'm not saying they can't work, but it'll take a little know-how.

Michael Irvin likes that tie: So does Merril Hodge:

I would love to provide some advice, but I can't get past the length, width and knot size of your ties to focus on the combinations. I'm sorry, I know some athletes do this and the young guys in Europe, but it looks silly and it is not very professional. Look around at the business men in your community. Look at the successful ones. Do they wear ties like this? I sincerely doubt it.

Your arms-too-short problem is likely because the armholes are too low. You want to have about a half-inch or so of cuff showing when your arms are hanging. Also, where'd you get ties that wide?!

dude. dont want to beat a dead horse but holy hell. Matching is the least of your problems. The knot is as big as your head. tie a FIH. Please.
