nice fit, as per usual EliodA.  I hesitate to put reds and greens together for about 51 weeks of the year.  This doesn't look too Xmas-y to my eye tho, but perhaps there would be more harmonious square  choices given the sombre jacket/tie/shirt.

 

On the thread-  it's a great read, epecially Foo and Manton.  Those guys are not afraid of expressing an opinion, and despite the brutality of it (hats off to the people who kept posting fits) or maybe because of it,  I guess I learned a lot about square choice.

Manton's Squarefail thread is also quite worthwhile.

this might be odd coming from me. but i love red and green together as long is its not overpoweringly seasonal.

IMO they work best as subsidiary colors-  

but true red and that leaf green in EA's square r hard to do 'tastefully' on their own let alone together -

Interesting discussion about Xmas, gentlemen, but the truth is: there is no red in that square :)

What looks red is actually more like maroon or rust brown. I know nuances like that an easily be missed on photo and every monitor displays colours differently, but it's certainly not true red, as @Pliny suggests.

would u call the tie red-ish?  I was thinking more of the tie and the green in the square., which is pretty nice.

post #12562 of 13399
The tie is a pretty standard burgundy.

Thank you. It's one of my first 'proper' suits and quite possibly still my favourite.
