Preaching to the choir when it comes to black (my knit doesn't get won because it's too damn thin). At some point folks were arguing that black was never an optimum choice in any given outfit. Went through some of mine and felt that any other color would have been an inferior choice here (especially when looking at the full picture). Grenadine though, not knit.

I think the darkish green works best actually (even if the shoes that day were black, although that's the case where either black or green tie would be equal). The burgundy tie would also be a choice with black shoes, though not with brown or burgundy shoes. YMMV, naturally.

These arrived today very pleased. Sorry for X post.

E G Cappelli have been fantastic! I can highly rec'. I'm going back and first choice likely to be a black Gren'.

Nice pick-ups, Cleav.  I really like the burgundy tie.

 

For any of the projects looking to add to their shoe collection.  Carmina has some staples on sale in their e-boutique.  http://www.carmina.telemaco.es/index.asp?outlet=1  Calfskin shoes are in the low $300's, including shipping, and shell around $500 shipped.  There are some nice Rain last wholecuts, a Forest last black captoe and a gorgeous burgundy shell wingtip on the Rain last.  Please buy the burgundy shell Rain last wingtip in an 11UK, so I can resist the temptation.

Newshoes, great shout on the Carminas. I'd have definitely pulled trigger on suede DMs but no my size frown.gif

It's a promotion on small (UK 5-6.5) and large (UK11-14) only.  And I checked every one for exceptions, to no avail!

I love EG capelli, sadly I only have 1 of their ties. They drape and knot really well:

Thanks for the heads-up, but none of the ones I need were in my size. :(

As an 11UK, it's a very rare occurrence when my size is in stock and on sale. Too much temptation.
