Tenis, great look and a great picture.  May I ask where you got that button down?  Very nice roll.

 

Thanks, the shirt is from Charles Tyrwhitt

@Count de Monet, I don't necessarily think any particular type of tie must be avoided with a flannel suit. I do think that ties with a bit of texture and without a glossy finish best complement flannel (e.g. grenadines, some wool ties). I prefer to wear my diamond weaves and shinier ties with worsteds.

I'm assuming the jacket below is flannel.  Whatever it is, I think it definitely looks great with the Challis Wool (#3?).  I guess my question, which concerns texture/type of weave/print, etc. more than color or pattern, is whether ties of a certain sort of material or construction should be avoided with a flannel suit.

Thank you. You are correct on both, the suit is flannel and the tie is the challis pattern #3. smile.gif

+1 - I probably mix and match more than most on this forum but I agree with archibaldleach.

Thanks for the responses.

In other news, I see David has updated the site to indicate more silk is on the way from Italy. I hope there was room on the boat for some navy grossa.

Today's Hober is the alpaca/camel cashmere black warp (6-fold construction).

I am incredibly happy with my six-fold Macclesfield print tie with hand-rolled edges, and I'd like to buy a similar tie for my boss. I want something in the design below. However, Sam Hober only seems to have it in wool, and the description notes that the material works best as a four-fold.

 

How will a four-fold in wool differ from a six-fold in silk, in terms of drape, its knot, etc? Does a wool tie like this look distinctly like wool, or is it interchangeable withh a traditional silk tie?

This tie from earlier this week is from that same line. I think weight, drape and knot are similar to grenadines so four fold works well. Wrt how seasonal it is I am probably not the best source. IMO it is more of a fall/winter tie but I could be wrong. I am sure others will weigh in.

^^ IMO, wool ties are almost always F/W ties. A few in brighter colors (pink, powder blue) might look okay during the summer but they will not be optimal even if in summery colors. Darker wool ties should be reserved for F/W.

X-Post from the Peacock Thread. Repeat tie, Burnt Orange Diamond Weave:

Finally have a client that requires a suit so I just bought two ties to celebrate! Hope they get here in time but I guess it would be too difficult to pull off. Went with Dark Chocolate and Forrest Green Grossa to be a little different yet versatile. I would have bought two more but I didn't think he could get them here soon enough for me to wear them all that week biggrin.gif.
