Yes.  Don't.  Although a green tie is very fashionable on SF right now (and I'm wearing another one today for that matter), it's a not the automatic hit like burgundy is on navy or navy is on grey.  Wear it with a white shirt on a grey suit and it can make you look sickly.  But in this case, with a nice SF-juxtaposition against a blue suit, and probably a bluish shirt, you need to be careful of the pattern.  This tie has a small neat pattern and a flat, matte finish.  If it were shinier, or plain, or both, it would live nicely with a stripey city shirt.  But anything more than a fine microstripe is going to jar with this.  Go plain blue.  It will be nice.  And you will be happy.  Even white is OK with one of your bluer blue suits.

Fear not, he has eyes only for Pingson.

Agree with Mimo about the stripes. Basically you need stripes spaced apart at most half the width of the flowers on the tie to avoid conflict of scale (I pulled the half number out of thin air, so if anyone has a better number, feel free to suggest it)

Man mrs noodles wants to go back to France for the honey moon. I told her how I felt about the snobby French people and that I'd rather go to Germany since I spreche die Deutche.

Them which tie do I wear with that stopped blue shirt???
post #1147 of 37439

A plain white shirt would work fine too.  But as you also have a white PS, I think the blue would be just a notch higher in deliciousness.

So it shall be then.

Wir sind ganz Ohr.

Maybe compromise on Italy? Unlike the French, they don't pretend not to speak English, the food is better because there's more variety, it's a traditionally romantic destination just like Paris AND romantic locations (e.g. Florence) can coincide with fabulous kopping opportunities for you.  

 

Win-win I'd say.  

post #1151 of 37439

Florence and Rome are thee destinations, in my humble opinion.

 

El Duomo in Firenze, the Vatican in Roma, ... endless opportunities. Just thinking of the gelato alone makes me gain 10lbs on the spot.

Yeah he's trying not to do that. But it's his honeymoon, so hopefully lots of exercise involved.  And walking around the shops too.

 

My first honeymoon was in Verona.  Very nice.  Easy day trips to Florence, Venice, and lakes, and not so much of a tourist trap - nice to walk around and feel you're in a real city and not a theme park (don't stay in Venice).

 

My next honeymoon I'm thinking Mexico.  And not just because I also have a man-crush on Betelgeuse.

post #1153 of 37439
Huh?! I thought you can have only one honeymoon in your life. I sound very naive here.
post #1154 of 37439

Depends on how many times you get married, although some people apparently try to recreate the experience with the same wife.  Me, different wife, different honeymoon.  

 

Don't tell her you want to take Pingson with you.  One pretty firm rule is that you only take one at a time.

post #1155 of 37439
Enough with Pingson! Lol
