I got one at Exquisite Trimmings, those Fumigali squares are more cream than white. Just fold it so that the coloured edge doesn't show.

I can help you resist. It looks like #hit. J/k

 

But like I said before, I think you need SCs and ties that are clear in their colors because I notice that you tend to like a blend of colors that really don't say what color they are.

I only like the third.

 

I'd add that the first two seem actively unpleasant to me for a variety of reasons, and the last has nice colours but the scale of is too big for use as a discreet tie, while simultaneously not big enough for a bolder look.

Very versatile colour. Styling is typical RLBL; one either likes it or not. If it fits, it'll be a useful suit, but you might want to find one in a similar colour with more traditional styling. Up to you.

This forum hates shiny ties simply because they're shiny ties. Big mistake IMO.

 

Shiny ties can be really great. But you need the right kind of shiny for daytime: the glossiness of a printed silk tie against a conservative suit, not the sheen of satin. While at night, satin ties can set of a relatively formal outfit brilliantly by adding an item that catches the light off candles or low lights. In the right applications, ties with sheen are fantastic, and can enhance an outfit much more than a matte tie under those - admittedly fairly narrow - circumstances.

 

The trouble is that those circumstances are relatively rare for many readers, even on SF: not many wear still wear formal suits to work, and fewer still wear them out to dinner in the evening. So this generalisation of sheen=bad develops, as a satin tie with an odd jacket country-esque daytime outfit is terrible, and those nasty TK Maxx multistripe satin ties look cheap with business suits.

I don't own one these days, but yes, it's very versatile: use it wherever you like the idea of a light silk square but white would be too harsh a contrast. That's a lot of outfits.

 

However, if you already have a number of other squares, I think there's less need for it. It may be versatile but I don't think it's always optimal in those situations. Depends a bit on your personal style too.

This one is easy. Buy a cheap white one, and wait until it yellows. I'm not even kidding. I have one very old white linen square that has naturally yellowed slightly with age. I don't wash it, because I rather like the cream colour.

Very nice. I have the tipped version, as well as at least one other Drakes grenadine. Be gentle with them when undoing the knot, or you can tear open the long seam. They're the only ties I undo the slow way (reversing the steps to tie the knot), rather than just pulling it through to undo it.

you seek not wanting people to see your errors, and it confuses the shit out of things. smile.gif

my rec would be to leave the originals pics and just add a corrected one so people can see what went down.

Ah! I get it. I tend to do this A LOT. Sometimes, I would even just delete the picture.

Looks like @davesmith added some nice macclesfields.

One is like a less expensive version of the Shibumi in green

Dude, what width did you get? Is that a 3.75? Looks mad wide.

Could just be the angle...
