Yes. Somewhere upthread I pointed out that they were excellent for that purpose.

clovers are not green. my goodness man, im not that tacky. (except on purim. wink wink). they are light/powder blue.

shirt is not right here, comes off way too "vibrant." its much softer like in my previous pic, but you can see that the clovers are blue.

Unlike the dwarf, I actually like club ties. Alas, I no longer belong to any clubs. frown.gif I have on that I wear, it's the insignia of the City of London, which I think is fair game.

you can join my club, manton. will be loads of fun.

Not that my opinion counts for anything but square ended knit ties come across as being too cutesy to me. They're second only to colorful bowties in terms of foppishness.

Tried this:



Then this:



Hated them both and went without a square.

Another day:



Pic is a bit oversaturated. Today:

Also, square too matchy.

Shirt and suit are good.

I knew you in particular would not care for the tie. Hank is actually gold/brown/cream, but perhaps it's the scale which is too similar for you?

First, Will.i.n. Second, I don't understand this sentiment at all. It's an artifact of the manufacturing method. A square-end woven tie, now that's cutesy.

Mr. Pink: The second choice was okay for me. Don't like three or four.

Pink, those are pretty good, but I think those ties would work better with solid or possibly checked shirts. Not a fran of stripe + stripe and if you do it, the scale should be radically different, like, pencil stripe shirt for those ties.

White square would have been fine for 1 and 2, Pink. Better than the two options you tried, anyway. Sometimes best not to over-think.

Maybe a repeating banana-slug motif?

This one?



Or this one?

Also, today. On the fence about the hank:

Mang, that is the OneSquare, goes with almost everything. It's so hard to mismatch. How did you manage to do it? devil.gif

I think I'm going to stick with micro-checks or hairline stripes with these sorts of ties.

I agree, but I was already running late, and didn't want to run back upstairs to get one. I need to leave a white linen square at the office.

^That donegal is gorgeous. A pocket square in the overcoat AND jacket is a bit contrived though.
post #7559 of 12606
Will.i.n, you wouldn't want the overcoat pocket to get lonely, would you? I never took you for the heartless type...

Vitctor, I like almost all of that (esp the hat) though I agree about the two squares.

Also, I think it would look better if the pants were ligther than the coat. The coat is dark enough that darker pants just seem too dark.
