Shirt/Tie combo: Does it work?

Thanks in advance.

I'm no expert but I'm going to say no and predict a chorus of negativity.

I don't like the tie or the shirt, an I don't like them together. Sorry.

No because it is hanging sideways.
(no if hanging down too)

No need to be sorry - I appreciate the feedback. I actually don't like the tie either, but it was a gift, and I'm trying to make it work... This was my last ditch effort.

I think it can work!

Maybe not day to day, but definitely for an event or to a business meeting etc. Just make sure the tie isn't too wide!

Never been a big fan of large paisley patterns, also that shirt and tie do not like each other at all.

At the very least try it with a solid shirt, and maybe something tweedy or flannel. The tie seems shiny though...hopefully that's just the pic. Paisley shiny = bad. Paisley matte = good.

the tie is wearable, but not in the busy combo you have there.

pair it with a plain shirt and you should be fine.

Use a solid shirt maybe white or beige.

You need a plain burgundy tie I think

Shirt/tie combo is too busy. Try a plain tie in burgundy, navy, grey or dark green.

It doesn't work for my taste. I'm all for subtle and solids prints when it comes to ties.

Just keep the tie solid at least.

No, don't wear a burgundy tie of any kind with that red checked shirt. It looks matchy. Wear a navy knit tie. Also, that's more a sportcoat shirt than a suit shirt. So wear it with a knit tie, sportcoat, odd trousers.
