However, I had always imagined it (and think I would prefer it) in wool.
Although wool is usually described as more casual, since glen plaid originated in wool, would a wool glen-plaid tie be a traditional/appropriate choice? Silk + glen plaid seems like an anachronism, or ana-textilism.post #37 of 449/14/12 at 6:57ampost #38 of 449/14/12 at 7:17pmThread Starterpost #39 of 449/15/12 at 5:38ampost #40 of 449/15/12 at 5:51ampost #41 of 449/16/12 at 8:51pmThread Starter
I put up the good fight...
I tried to "convince" her with the wedding ties suggested here; a solid silver and a small houndstooth, and finally to oblige her, I tried the white one. Reception was quite good to the first two ties, better than expected, but her face completely lit up when I turned around wearing the white one. At that point, I knew the gravity of giving in to her surely innocuous request. Any reasoning about traditional dress was ignored and at points created frustration. So I am opting for the happy wife equals a happy life.
Here are two pictures: The first a white tie, the second the silver, which was an exact match to the previously suggested Drake's Solid Silver Reppe.
How's that saying go again about permission and forgiveness...post #42 of 449/17/12 at 10:05amThread Starterpost #43 of 449/18/12 at 6:18amThread Starter
