Can I get a quick thumbs up/thumbs down consensus on this for warmer weather, with spring green, blue, and brown SCs?  (Obviously channeling Tira's most recent masterpiece a bit here).

Not my fave.  I like this one from Ed better.

Pick it up. Might not be the easiest to use, but if you are in it for the long haul, that's less of an issue.

heldentenor - If, in business dress you want an overall harmonious look, then I think it is a bit too bright for a business wardrobe. If you want an orange or any other bright color tie consider something that is a but more muted or dusty. It will have the desired effect but without your tie being the showcase of your entire outfit. .

Thanks, GusW--I'm not strictly bound by business dress for work reasons, though I do try to stay pretty close to soporific with most of my ties.  I like the "pop" this gives, but it's awfully bright. I'll mull it over for a bit.  

 

I love that one from Ed, Murl, but I think I'm going to pick up its sibling in green.  Don't like to double down on patterns when I can help it.  

 

Gus, Murl, Clags, thanks for the input.

I agree with Claghorn:  it's loud, but not unwearably so for some people.  If you like it and (this is important) can quite clearly imagine a context in which you'd wear it, why not?

 

For anyone interested in a more conservative orange tie so far as the pattern goes, on the other hand, Claghorn posted one recently on WAYWRN which I remember remarking on at the time—it's quite beautiful.  If memory serves he used the word 'orange' in his post, so a search for that should make it easy to find.

 

I've got a couple of orange neats or medallion ties, but they're more 'burnt orange' and thus tend more toward the brown or gold side of the 'orange' spectrum.  I wouldn't mind finding a 'brighter' orange neat, myself:  it can look quite stunning with a navy or other dark blue jacket IMO.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

^That's pretty much what I have in mind here--a louder, brighter alternative to a rust grenadine.

Love that fit and especially, the tie.

That's pretty much what will be going on top of my cotton trouser, sockless loafer, wedding fit abomination. I think it might actually be the same square.

This is the only blue jacket they have in Hudson, which I was initially turned off by because they feature a shorter length. I'll go and try it on in person though. Not sure if it's the best choice for someone trying to build a solid base for a wardrobe, but I do like it:

 

Wool Silk

I'm not sure how this fabric looks in person but the Havana and Hudson are the same length.

I think there is a Hudson suit that's in a more traditional blue.
