Ok fair enough, I like the pictures as well especially the second one. To be totally honest I have never seen anybody wear a silver tie like this.

It is indeed a handsome tie. The Kent Wang glen plaid tie I linked on the first page of this thread would be similar.

That one is quite nice as well. I just have serious objections to plain just silver ties as sometimes worn by celebrities or really badly dressed grooms.

Unbel - I'm surprised that you recommended 2 Kent Wang ties (houndstooth and glen plaid), but you didn't mention this one.

That's a good one too. I have the vanda version

I wish I had had a b&w glen plaid tie for the few weddings I attended this summer--looking to buy one now, I see that the recommended ones are silk. 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.

I did a Sam Hober Fina Grenadine with a charcoal 3 piece suit, white shirt for my wedding earler this year, worked out very nice.

You should still have time to go that route.

Well Gents, 

 

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... lol8[1].gif

Given that I am now wearing a white tie, what color square, pattern, cloth should I go for?

Well, at least you're going in with eyes wide open smile.gif

I'd use just a white linen square.
