It's the anti-fuuma tie, I couldn't think of anything that would be in more contrast to your aesthetic.
Yeah I know, however I think it would go over relatively well with a beige cotton suit in some summery fit (i.e. much better in the south than the north for example). The suit you are wearing is just too somber.
Last time I wore it with a white shirt and the mid-blue fresco we both have. Maybe a khaki fresco suit is in my future!

I have the H&S Crispaire khaki/tan fresco in my usual summer 3 roll 2 patch/flap hip pocket, patch breast pocket and single hook vent. It was my first suit from Winston/Chipp and he mistakenly did hand pick stitching on the lapels and trouser seams instead of the machine stitching I wanted. That is the only thing I don't like about it. He was so proud of it that I left it alone and only corrected it for future orders.
I like the color and don't see the objection to fresco here. It is way more useful to me than a cotton suit would be and for the same purpose (linen is a different beast altogether)
