I hope Manton doesn't mind me using his fit to attempt to revive this thread:

almost all of the suits being matched with are navy/blue,  is it much harder to match to grey/charcoal?

Necro-bump, since this might qualify. The discussion in this thread was helpful background when I put this together. If anything, it demonstrates that a light tie is much easier with a dark jacket and striped tie that's actually lighter than the tie so that the tie becomes an intermediate color.

Interesting thread. TBH, I'm not sure I really like that outfit, Mr. Six. I think the jacket looks too dark for the tie. A lighter shade of brown would have looked better, imo.
In general, when wearing a light tie, I prefer a low contrast look with a light or medium shade jacket.

Agreed.

I don't have many light ties.







And maybe

It's always interesting how people's perceptions differ. In your first photo, the value difference between your tie and jacket seem about the same to me as the difference between my tie and jacket. I think your second photo demonstrates the peril described in unbel's first post in this thread of light shirt + light tie + light jacket. I like the first combo quite a bit though.

Interesting indeed... The contrast in the first photo looks stronger than it is, the suit is a bit lighter IRL. But I suspect this may also be the case with your jacket? That's the famouse tobacco frsco, isn't it?

Funny how you prefer the first outfit over the second one, since I'm quite content with that one in that it's a bit harder to make it work compared to the first one. Unbel's light, low contrast fit in the OP suffers by comparison from a tie that is too light and lacks visual interest IMO. As you say, perceptions differ... :nodding:
