A Ryan, you've heard the arguments both sides. There is no "right" answer. At some point, you gotta do you.

How to wear a white shirt - Page 35post #511 of 5229/7/14 at 9:11pm

I just think your outfits have some gimmicks that are more distracting than the shirt. If you like the tie clip wear it down lower. I already mentioned the big knot. Also, the grenadine, imo, is too formal for the casualness of that jacket you are wearing in the above picture, also it is too close in color, which looks like you tend to do this. Your tie should have more variation in color from the jacket. I like that collar, however.post #517 of 5229/9/14 at 7:08am
I've tried using a slide clasp on the narrow end of the tie to keep my tie in place; the main issue is I can't stand in swinging around much. OCD kinda thing. I could try that again I suppose.
I do wear too many grenadines, and have switched over to wool and cashmere for the fall/winter; however, I've yet to build a collection of cotton or linen ties for spring/summer wear. Going to work on that next season.
The monochrome jacket and (solid) tie look is something I love. Not sure why. I do wear them darker than the jacket on occasion, but always struggle mentally with the tie being lighter than the jacket. Appreciate the feedback.post #518 of 5229/9/14 at 7:12ampost #519 of 5229/9/14 at 7:26ampost #520 of 5229/9/14 at 7:37ampost #521 of 5229/9/14 at 8:54am
