X-post from WAYWRN:

 

Very unusual for me to wear a light tie, but since this was recently discussed (again) in the Noodles thread, I wanted to give it a try. Still not sure if I'm sold on this look, TBH. What do you  think, gentlemen?

I would like it better with a solid blue shirt, but I think it's an acceptable use of a light tie.

Thanks. I tried it with a solid blue shirt first, but I was afraid the shirt would be too dark to go with the the tie since I don't have solid blue shirts that are light enough.

Fair enough. If you needed to choose between shade and pattern, I think you made the right choice.

Very nice @EliodA

That's exactly how I would wear it. I was even planning a similar fit in my head but wearing a suit in this weather for someone that struggles to wear suits biggrin.gif

id like the tie better with a less business type suit, like a navy cotton unstructured SC perhaps, but it looks legit to me.

I like that jacket and I would be tempted to swap the tie for a black knit.

Or a navy knit.

Closet thing I have to a knit tie is a Navy grenadine fina. I haven't found a knit that isn't skinny i.e. > 3 inches.

Charvet and RLPL are normal width IIRC, they are at least wide enough that they do not appear skinny.

Can't go wrong with a Charvet knit!

I do like the sozzi knit ties even though they are only about 7.5 cm. I think a square tipped knit tie looks best at that width anyways.
