What would you wear a shirt made of this with? Tieless sport coat or jeans only?

Solid browns, navies, dark red?

I have similar shirts and wear them in the Spring and Summer with a blazer (no tie) or with a suit and solid navy or pink tie.

I think that check is small enough you could wear it with a jacket and tie. Right @EliodA? smile.gif

1. Absolutely.
2. Don't wear that with jeans. That's horrible. You need a thicker, rougher material for jeans. Nothing more formal than an oxford cloth.

So at that size does it count as solid?

I like this a lot and will have to keep this in mind.

Question for you all … Most of my shirts are BB broadcloth or poplin (don't really know the difference), or OCBD. I'm receiving my second order from Proper Cloth soon, a cotton/linen blue stripe with a soft spread collar and looking to make another order for a staple light blue dress shirt and a navy stripe dress shirt. Is there anything in particular I should be getting first fabric wise? Broadcloth, pinpoint, end-on-end, thread count, 2-ply? I've read so much on this subject that I'm completely undecided. Any advice would be great!!! Thanks!!!

No, I wouldn't say that. But the pattern is small enough that it can be worn with a tie. Larger ginghams are more difficult to pull off. In general, for checked shirts I'd say it depends on the combination of scale and contrast: the larger the size of the check and/or higher the contrast, the more difficult to wear with a tie.

OK, a nostalgic return to the early days of the thread.

 

I need suggestions for a solid wool, cashmere, or wool/cashmere blend tie in a mid-dark brown.  I want a deep, rich brown that stays brown when viewed at a distance (many turn grayish pretty quickly as distance increases).

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers,

How does that work? :puzzled:

Are you looking for something like what I was wearing yesterday? Won't turn grey at distance...

Nice.  Thank you.  Source?

Cappelli seems like the best bet for such a brown cashmere tie, since he has a number of shades. Exquisite Trimmings might have a few Cappellis or his own custom ties along those lines. NMWA has a mid-brown cashmere from Calabrese.

I do not own a single-breasted navy SC.

 

But if I did, I would want it to be like Braddock's:

This might be a good first-up commission for our local bespoke house P Johnson, who I believe have their garments made in Napoli.
