Still don't like the watch, but I have a question. I have a royal blue "summer" suit. I have no idea what tie to wear with it. Can a black knit work with such a light blue? I am not sure about how to pair it. I was also thinking of a white tie with red pindots that Will has on his site.
If it's not a grey-blue, I don't think black would work so well.
I like the example stitch posted but sounds like your suit is another beast entirely.
Navy might work - I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it. You could also go for something grey / silver, as opposed to just black and white.
I can't see you in an orange tie.post #9034 of 141535/31/13 at 10:42ampost #9035 of 141535/31/13 at 10:48ampost #9036 of 141535/31/13 at 10:52ampost #9037 of 141535/31/13 at 10:54amOne thing that seems kind of weird to mention is that I tend to stay away from white/silvery ties in the summer because my oily guinea hands tend to stain the knot area from tying and fixing and stuff. After I noticed this phenomenon I have been washing my hands like a fiend before adjusting my tie, or even putting it on in the morning.post #9038 of 141535/31/13 at 11:01ampost #9039 of 141535/31/13 at 11:02amQuote:
you think you have it hard? my hands are dry as fuck and rough from all the sanding, glueing and general use of adhesives and oodles of isopropanol and acetone in the lab.
everytime my velcro hands touch a grenadine or knit tie I can hear my fingers ripping small fibres... for a while I thought I might put a box of disposable gloves in my tie drawer and tie them like a surgeon every morning. but that would be just silly.post #9040 of 141535/31/13 at 11:03ampost #9041 of 141535/31/13 at 11:05ampost #9042 of 141535/31/13 at 11:05ampost #9043 of 141535/31/13 at 11:08ampost #9044 of 141535/31/13 at 11:34ampost #9045 of 141535/31/13 at 11:35am
