Suggestions for pocket square with this tie. - Page 2

post #16 of 29
Shirt is fine, just not with that suit and not good for a wedding.

Burn the tie.

A light blue shirt (lighter than the jacket) will look far better.

Just curious, i know I've received a lot of hate on that tie, but what would that tie go with? Too be honest, its not that bright, the flash of the camera is not helping. Any suggestions?

IF I were to wear that tie I would probably wear it with a light colored linen suit and either a light blue or a cream colored shirt. The intense contract with your chosen suit and shirt is what makes an already marginal tie look atrocious.

So how is this? I know the tie should be a little higher i just went for it real quick.

I think that looks a lot better.  Practice tying that tie knot - the knot itself should be a nice upside-down triangle and the length of tie extending downwards should have a dimple where it meets the knot. Like this http://www.bows-n-ties.com/cherryred-striped-necktie-p-13858.html?r=o  

 

Also, assuming that's a two-button suit jacket, keep the top button buttoned unless you're sitting down.  This will show off the suits silhouette.

Definitely much better. Just a little boring is all. I'd go a little bit lighter on the shirt and use a different knot on the tie. Maybe a four in hand. You might then experiment with a burgundy pocket square with some navy highlights or something similar.

So would this pocket square work? It's the first one I listed when I first posted.

I'd pass on that one. I'm not too big on solid pocket squares unless they are white. Not everyone agrees with this, but it's just a personal thing. I'd go with something like this...

 

 

It's a bit match for me personally, but I'd hesitate to go with anything too contrasting in this situation simply because all eyes would be drawn to the square and nothing else.

 

ETA: Link for the square, in case you want it.

Hey man - I liked the original tie, actually. Looks like you have a good suit. Why not wear the tie with a plain white linen square? It's the safest bet AND the classiest bet and man, it would look good. Just my opinion. Anyway the outfit is lookin' good.

The more I'm thinking about it the more I agree with Chan about the pocket square. Your ensemble is simple, so the square ought to be simple as well. However I think you made the right choice ditching the shirt and tie.

I'm really liking that bow tie. Bonus points if you tied it yourself. A white square with that combo and I think you'd be doing rather well for yourself.

The jacket is too tight, and its buttoning point might be too high.
