If you are sure you want to keep this tie, then keep the rest simple as the first reply suggested. But I don't think it would be anyone's first choice of neckwear here.
Ahem. Maybe not everyone wants to look 50 years old? I would prefer darker shade of turquoise then the one showed but there is nothing wrong with color. So because it is my first post i have a useless opinion?
I wouldn't wear a solid on solid but almost any tie can look good with the right shirt.
You may feel better in your overpriced clothing but i buy what is comfortable and looks good. I just bought a new thomas pink shirt paired with an isaia tie and got zero compliments. I get more compliments from a van huesen shirt and non silk tie (gift).
And honestly a ted baker tie with a fun design is fun and very sharp. And heck maybe can make you stand out in a good way if you have an outgoing personality.
But ya the tie could be a better shade but it is the person wearing the clothes that makes them look good not the price.
