Wait-  Navy/white tie better with navy suit?

IMO navy/white tie better with grey suit and black/white tie better with navy suit.  

 

But to me, Shepherd check, glen plaids and houndstooths in b/w or blue/white are wedding/occasion ties.  Wouldn't feel comfortable in them for day to day wear.

No, for the office.
Is there a history behind Glenn plaid tie that makes it only for wedding and not appropriate for the office?

I agree that navy suits and gray ties go well, and vice versa.

Just the history of common usage AFAIK.  I'd be afraid ppl would ask me, 'Getting married today?'

 

Not a hard and fast prohibition though, so if u feel comfortable I guess go for it.

I don't know anyone who knows that glen paid ties are wedding ties. I don't think anyone would even think of associating that kind of tie with getting married. Where do you live where everyone is so sartorially educated?

The latter comes from the guy who in the same post stated the former. Ironic?

He probably noticed you staring at him in awe and told himself 'I giff a rad's ass'.
Or 'whyisthatcreepstaringatmyfeet!?'.

Your shrewd words do not make sense to a dumb wit like me. And I didn't stare, I just glanced. At any rate, I was told the best selling C&J is the Westbourne in chestnut. This surprised me as most men here dress in either black or really dark navy suits.

Also, I am with Monkeyface on the Glenn plaid. And why the heck would I show up at the office if I am going to a wedding? I love wedding receptions...at least I used to when I was single.
post #21953 of 37396
Lol. Especially at the wedding reception fun now vs back then.
Now yours (words) make good sense to me.
Admittedly, that much of a contrast between all black canvas to chestnut kickers takes some balls and could envoke some disbelief. wink.gif

Misunderstanding.  I was referring to the black/white Noodles posted.  In other colors theyre for general use.

Desense,
I think it is from ignorance that they just jumble stuff together. No disrepect to them as they are very hard working men who have other priorities.

Pliny, does this scream WEDDING?

That was my guess. So I went to your website looking for that tie to no avail.

My apologies for using your photo w.out your permission but you're all over Google smile.gif

No apologies necessary. I carried it a year or so ago. Been meaning to re-stock it actually, should do that smile.gif

Thanks for that, really appreciated! Here's a fit pic attached, is it just me or is the button position really low?
