Looks fantastic, I almost wore mine

J1. Had posted O4 earlier. This is a little less orange. O4 is sold out.

The right is a wool/cash gren listed as light blue but on darker side. Photos are Patrizios of course

J1, I see that more as a jacket than a tie. Something too extreme about a deep rusty solid tie. I challenge you to find a good combo for that where the tie isn't the center of attention.

What's wrong with a tie being the center of attention?

I don't know, same reason not to wear a propeller beanie.

post #1447 of 1594

I think you have a different conception of center of attention. A bit hyperbolic to compare J1 to a propeller beanie, no?

That madder seems very wearable in summer, given the color. Perhaps a bit bright indeed for a madder, but I'm going off the pic and I'm sure it is properly chalky and muted irl.

Maybe a dumb question but I'm gonna ask. Is Madder supposed to be fall/winter and with SC/trousers or can it be worn all year long and with a suit?

My view is that it's autumnal, good with tweed. Should be muted, chalky in texture (it's really a distinctive feel). I avoid paisley madders but love the bigger medallions that Patrizio has (see also the smaller neat patterns like the one Cleav has in blue way up in the thread).

 

That said, I'm picking up I43. It's muted but the green is bright enough that I will probably wear it in spring/summer too. No one will be the wiser. @cezinhohas a pic of it with a navy blazer on his IG.

 

Here's Boyer with a brief text on madder:

I think it's more just the almost flannel-like appearance of that. That seems like a very wooly tie to wear in such a saturated tone, and around the neck. I can't put my finger on it.

I20, does we like it?

Two issues now, no? On a rust tie, I think pairing is quite basic. This isn't the right jacket (would want a more saturated blue) and I'd use a silk, textured square or madder square, but navy with rust is a solid fit.

 

 

gasp, beckett and robb pic (Click to show)

On the texture: fine, you don't like to wear wooly ties. I can understand that. I like the warmth of it though I would use a madder silk square. 

 

Here's me with a Drake's which J1 is replacing...it is all a bit wooly, but I don't mind. That said, this speaks to why madders are so lovely with tweed; they provide material contrast with the coat.

I must have some wool tie associated trauma.

Yes, a dusty madder I think is just as interesting without going the wooly mammoth route.

I have some interesting woolen solid ties, not in extreme colors, should take a pic, but I think there's a sweet spot for milling and finish. IMO too "homespun" and it's starting to look like it's for grouse hunting, but your context may differ. I actually have a few heavierweight tweeds I brought to the tailor to store in my queue and he keeps "losing" them cause he doesn't want to make them -- too rustic. This is a city tailor. I don't think he's warping my mind (yet), but I just mention that as an interesting aside. One man's pleasure is another's poison, I guess.

Fall/ winter with suits or sport coats.
