Wool tie made of same material as suit

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Would this look good? I have yet to find a picture of it on the net, but was thinking of getting a tie made up out of the same dark navy twill that my next suit will be... I figured with a plain white shirt it would give a solemn, uniform like appearance... or could it end up looking like a doorman or clergyman?

This is the closest I could find, though in gray:

Why stop with a tie? Why not have a matching shirt too?

Seriously, a tie made from the coat cloth would look odd.

If you've the cajones to wear jockey shorts and undershirt to match then I say, 'WERK IT!'

You might also search for the thread about 'dessert shoes'. As I think you'll find an appropriate footwear recommendation there.

SRSLY.......NO!

I've seen nice ties from suitcloth, but Jesus matchy matchy.

Only if the tie is to be worn as headgear and has an appropriate emblem.

I'm still waiting for Battisti to do it.

Interesting idea. I've seen plenty of monochrome looks where the tie is close to the suit, and it can look smashing when done right, but I've never heard of a tie actually made from the same suiting material.

 

I think it would be a bit too cute if the suit were patterned. I could, however, see it working with a heather grey flannel material. If you're going for extreme minimalism, I suppose you could wear a solid shirt with it, but I'd be inclined to spice it up with a checked shirt and perhaps a bright pocket square.

 

I would definitely not do it with a dark fabric, because then it would be very difficult to tell that it's the same material. (Textures are harder to notice in dark colors.) I suppose some might consider doing it invisibly the be the only acceptable way, but I figure that if you're trying to do something new, you might as well not hide it.

If your suit has a boring plain navy cloth, or something similar... yes.

If the cloth does not belong to the "boring plain" species, no.

Be astute.

Yes, extreme minimalism is the goal, I like the idea of making a suit that presents itself on cut and texture alone, without resorting to color or pattern. The monochromatic look is also more reserved and solemn while at the same time more formal... I'm thinking specifically of the matching black suits with black ties I've seen in Rome.

Agreed, a prince of wales tie with a prince of wales jacket would look pretty goofy.
