Wearing Light-Colored Ties - Page 3
Styleforum Top Picks
It was intentional. I like to think of it as a limited pallet. Perhaps the pale orange tie and blue shirt I had on originally would have been better.
The good thing about clothes is that we get new chances to experiment every day.
Spoo - Great stuff. Although I like #2 a lot more than #1. #2 I'm not sure if it's light enough to be a "light tie", but that's just semantics. On #1, the seasonalities are kind of clashing for me. The brown houndstooth feels F/W but the shantung tie feels S/S. Well chosen shirt though. Also, I'd like to commend your PS-folding as being strongly vaginal, which may bother some men.
CEP - I like these. The silver tie on white shirt on navy suit is a classic. What's the tie in #2?
HF - Here's a couple of combos with a cream tie. First is from http://macaronitomato.blogspot.com/, second from Patrick Johnson. I like one much more than the other, but I'll let the crowd weigh in first.
These are really good. Nicely done.
We should maybe try to define what a light tie is. I don't think it's just a light color, but also something pale. Even though glad's #2 is orangish-yellow, it's kind of a bright yellow that I wouldn't call "light". Don't know if I'm making any sense.
On the two pics I posted, from PJ and macaroni, I like the PJ one better. Highlights the virtue of texture in a pale tie IMHO.
Alright. So dumb question. But isn't a yellow/golden tie with a light blue shirt and dark navy or grey suit a standard? Is that hackneyed or am I just incredibly ill informed? I live in Seoul, and the stuff I see people wear everyday would make your eyes bleed, so I have a hard time getting perspective on certain things.
Black, possibly dark tan too. Basically, I think it would work on guys who contrast heavily against the very pale colours. For reference, I reckon my own skin tone may be a bit too light for nromally, but when I have a tan, I think that those colours would look decent on me too. I think it would work on East Asians too, especially if they have a bit of silver in their hair.
Would not think it would work for white dudes with black or grey hair. Possibly with a Redford blond, it a Gatsby-esque way? Not sure about that, thoght. With brown hair, it would be much better, I think, given the pale brown shades in the outfit.
ymmv, of course.
