However you want to classify lapel critique, it has nothing to do with color, pattern or texture combination, which is what this thread is intended to focus on. As stated by Manton, in the quote above.
Very well. My apologies.
Levi May @ 135: Colors and patterns are fine. Push down your square to show less. Your shirt collar is not working for you. Looks too tight and the points are not long enough. That’s a high collar band, which is nice, but the points need to be long enough to reach down and touch your clavicle.
Gents, I was hoping this conversation would lead us somewhere useful, but instead it's become tiresome. Critique is welcome but sniping is not. If it continues down this path, I'm going to take a blowtorch to all of it.
Yeah, try that tie with a navy suit. I have a couple yellow ties and they look nice with a navy jacket and pale blue shirt. I'd only wear yellow ties on a sunny day though (no matter if summer or winter)
Bright colors are tough, at least in a business setting. Easy to look garish, and hard to combine In a nuanced fashion. But I have some dark "old gold" ties that are workable, and I quite like bronze, copper and rust ties in the right (often fall) context.
