I have tons of ties, just not in Pink. I have another tie with hints of it, but nothing like these. I've never been a fan of this shade of "Pink" or to much "Pink" for that matter.

I really like tie #5 but not for this event, it doesn't seem to fit the occasion...—I'm keeping it though.

Rather than spending money shortening the sleeves of the shirt, find another shirt that's already the proper sleeve length but with a wider spread on the collar. You'll look much more "finished" with the collar points tucked away under your lapels rather than having them just floating around out there. Also, you might go back to Manny and have him slim the seat of the pants (or the upper part of the legs, hard to say from the pic.) to match the slim fit of the coat.

Thanks Digmenow, leaning towards #2 or #3

I had manny remove tons of fabric from the seat—though it could still use a tad more, he doesn't feel it needs anymore. I trust him.

I was asking the question more facetiously, given GBR's silly comment.

Also, learn to tie a Four-in-Hand knot. Your full windsor is far too big for that shirt and is really off-putting.

5 and 1 definitely... You have a dark completion and darker ties will not distract.. A light pink tie will look too sharp with a navy suit and will draw lots of attention to your knot nad not your face... also, I would tie a four in hand and you are showing too much cuff.

So far the votes are:

1: 1 1 1
2: 1 1 1 1
3: 1 1 1
4:
5: 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

seems like a toss up with 2 or 5... though 5 is blowing past it. I just find the dark navy and dark gray off putting to my eyes...might just be me.
