I was asking myself some hard questions though when Vox mistook a Stitchy post for one of mine...

I know this isn't a fit thread but the shirt and jacket both look very nicely cut.

And I think that gives you quite a bit of leeway with colors.

That said, I don't love the purpley blue tie with the shirt but I also think a navy tie would have been too facile so props on avoiding that.

A solid red shirt would be terrible but that red pencil stripe is nice.

Manton, can you elaborate on what makes a tie, particularly a neat, appropriate for a suit and what makes one appropriate for an odd jacket. I've been thinking about this--and read Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations (to the extent that it survives) several times--but I'm struggling a bit. I can see why the tie in Spoo's example is more appropriate for a suit, I think: city/formal material, small pattern, fairly soporific. I can't tell in other instances. Thanks!

What tie color outside the blue spectrum will you recommend?

I think blue (lighter than navy) is a good option but when it's more on the grey side of the spectrum.

Blacks works as well.

Beyond that, I really don't know. Sure there are some other options but nothing springs to mind.

Minus the lapel chain, of course.

kulta's shirt, the stripes seem a little darker, more brickish. I prefer that to the bright red.

I'll try the black just to see if it works with my skin tone especially with a red shirt (I normally wear black ties with light blue). Very interesting suggestion. Thanks

I don't like the bright red in that context at all.

Would also be keen to hear that. I understand the formal/casual clash, but I really like spoos jacket on its own.
