Don't try to create controversy where there is none.

Why? She says khaki, not grey.

I've got a few Mogador ties arriving today or tomorrow actually, not sure if there are any solids though (don't think so). But it is a beautiful fabric and very rare to find.

I bought the only one I've ever seen in the flesh -- NWT in a Salvation Army in an area some of my friends found questionable. It's a wonderful object, and I happen to think that, cotton content be damned, I'll be wearing it this winter.

This is a white oxford shirt the other fabric's textures are worsted, twill, linen and lastly wool for the tie. Do you think a pale blue shirt could have complimented this outfit?

top half seems very formal compared to bottom, but visually, i quite liek it.

There's also a cool/warm divide at the waist, which underscores the effect.

Also also, linen and a wool tie?

I think that a wool tie is best complemented with a silk square.

Solid ties can be quite stunning:

 

 

The above outfit works because the grey of the tie is a warm grey with a slightly brown tone that matches the color of the suit.  Here's the same effect with the tones matching, but in a cooler bluish grey (the tie might be a near-solid or have a very small pattern).  Sorry for the cross post from the Scholte thread.

 

 

There's something innately elegant about combining a solid tie with a similar tone in the suit and a white or near white shirt.  It's a daytime version of the design idea behind the tuxedo (coordinating jacket and solid tie, white shirt).  It's not the only combination I would wear (my favorite tie of all is a non-solid, a navy blue shepherd's check), but it's beautiful.

@doc, square is linen, tie is wool. I get what you mean with warm and cold colour discrepancy, however I feel like I'm essentially stuck with a solid white shirt with this tie. I don't see any hue of blue shirt working with this tie.

I like looks that incorporate near even amounts of cold and warm colors. This drives my wife crazy, and I suspect I may be in the minority here. I rather like the effect created by Clap's outfit.

 

In general, are there any decent rules of thumb about mixing fairly even amounts of both?
