Looks too washed out to my eyes - something needs to pop more, probably the tie.

Absolutely. Olive and wool go swimmingly together as olive is a very fall winter color and wool is, well, wool.

Someone once said paisley neats look like small sperms on ties. Now I'm inclined to agree.

Silk:

How narrow is that? If it's at least close to three inches, it's a decent purchase. You could probably find better from Shibumi or Conrad Wu. I miss the days when Yount carried like 20 different knits.

This tie appears to be a bit too narrow for the scale of its pattern.

I like it, but I feel that it's a shame to waste a brown tie purchase on something lacking anything really in terms on texture.

I agree with TM79. Everything is too "slate". You need a stronger element in color to ground the outfit (although there is a place for such looks too, depending on the occasion). A darker blue tie would have suited better, perhaps (this is your new cashmere?). I'm not sure I like the shirt in this context, sort of jarring to my eye with the herringbone. Or, you could have tried to add some pop with an appropriate pocket square, perhaps a richer, darker brown with some rust/blue overtones.

This is great news.

 

Also, I would like opinions on the following ties for my wardrobe:

 

 

 

 

Also, is a 3" wide tie too narrow for my 38R frame? Thank you.

I really only like the first and only if you don't have an olive.

 

I'm a 38R as well (ok 39), and I think 3 inch width ties too narrow. My sweet spot is 3.25 to 3 3/8. I will wear 3.5 inch ties happily but 3.75 definitely too wide. Knits are different, of course. Drakes does an 8cm which is officially 3.15 inches, I think (though always listed in US measurements as 3.25). Call me OCD, but they always feel more a 3 inch tie than a 3.25 inch...i.e. too narrow.

 

But this comes close to splitting hairs!

Stitches, cool of you to hang out with Noodles. He appreciates it I know, but I do too! Looking forward to any report.
