On pattern coordination between jacket/shirt/tie....................... - Page 28

post #406 of 434
Yes blue and gold/darker yellow over checks. Although in the picture they are much more apparent than they are in real life. I think i need to stay away from combining patterns until I have a much better handle on what I'm doing. I like the white linen ps idea, maybe with a maroon tie of some sort.

The PS could be white linen; a large-patterned silk in a drier hand, perhaps in a dark green, navy, or burgundy; or some silk with dots in a non-vibrant color.

 

I agree that the tie is a little too bright, maybe could work if a darker gold.  I think the tie possibly could work, though, if you used a medium-blue discreetly striped shirt with a burgundy PS, even one with some dots of navy or similar.  Basically I'm aiming to rein in the popping tie by picking up the blue and red tones, and then subduing those and/or trying to eliminate the stark contrast against the shirt (which I think must be non-solid for the effect to achieved, unless you go for a textured effect with, say, a blue pinpoint oxford, which I still think would not be enough).  Repeating medium blue in the PS would look silly, and we can't pick up yellow again obviously, so then red family is left.  Again, though, don't want a starkly contrasting solid (except for maybe a classic white, or very light blue) for the PS.

The first two pictures are fine but the rest of the pictures just have too busy patterns.

That's even conservative looking compared to the earlier pics, but works just as well.

Pliny - I'm not a fan of any of those. That striped shirt especially is really ugly next to that jacket IMHO.

The middle one isn't terrible except for the shirt and tie stripe bring too matchy.

thanks, but I'm leaning towards unbel's assessment
