Thoughts on crest ties being in good taste?
post #13952 of 13962
Is it your crest?
post #13953 of 13962
I thought that may come up. No, I'm referring to generic crested ties, like the ones you may find a J. Press, Brooks Brothers, or perhaps Ralph Lauren.

I do have a crest that I'm proud of, and I have it on a ring that was gifted to me, and the other men in my family by my grandfather. However, I don't really wear it, not being much for jewelry other than a wedding ring.

I actually think it would be poor taste to walk around in a tie with your actual crest. To me that would be very ostentacious to commission a custom tie at that level, and then sport it at anything other than a family gathering.

However, a crested tie that is apparently generic, at least to me, can just express an interest in tradition.

The tradition of having some schmuck make up a crest? Which, admittedly, is how one branch of my family got theirs.

 

I might wear one, but I wouldn't think of it as the strictest good taste (not that I dress in strict good taste, by any means).

 

I could see wearing something like this, where the crest is specific (Ireland), but not really part of a familial heraldry.

That's exactly the sort I'm talking about. That's a J Press tie, specific to a particular country as you said. Obviously it should still be worn with the other criteria for good taste... scale and color being taken into account with the surrounding clothing.

I think the waist of the grey one could be nipped a bit.

 

I dunno, I think the waist is fine. Not a fan of too slim a waist, I like to be able to breathe.  Your fits look great!

love the Vanda, and the Cappelli I have ... and the 'nacci  lol

Agreed, especially with the relatively traditional cut shoulders on that suit, which seem to have a bit of structure. I think both look very good as is.

Thanks gents! I'm going to wear that suit for a while longer before having any alterations made. The more I look at that pic, the better I think it looks. That grey and brown Vanda is a wonderful fabric. And I know you like that Cappelli and Rubi @Pliny. biggrin.gif
