Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1607post #24092 of 375365/22/15 at 10:34pmpost #24093 of 375365/22/15 at 11:51pm
I can't imagine that feeling.
I like the gren with the brown and light blue, or the last one. The shantung is nice, but if you're somehow going to get by with fewer than four navy striped ties, then a summer-only one doesn't make sense. I just don't love the next to last one.post #24094 of 375365/23/15 at 5:34am
They all seem nice. I've picked the third as one I'm considering. I tend to like less density in stripes as in the fourth but I can see it working in certain fits. It would have been terrific if slightly less dense (yrr92 and I have flipped preferences here).
Are the first two berg and berg? I'm still uncertain about the quality of those ties though I know many have them and are quite happy. Can't go wrong with the triple stripe shantung for summer.
Incidentally, I can't tell if this one will be surprisingly great or a train wreck or something in between. The brown/green is appealing though the texture contrast is, well, different.post #24095 of 375365/23/15 at 7:29ampost #24096 of 375365/23/15 at 7:37ampost #24097 of 375365/23/15 at 7:37ampost #24098 of 375365/23/15 at 7:53am
I'm pretty sure that's the same tie...maybe even same sewer (Italy). Shaya's ties are great and a bit cheaper than Viola Milano's
@davesmith can tell you about the tie. Indeed, the green shantung triple stripe is really appealing...post #24099 of 375365/23/15 at 8:42amThread Starterpost #24100 of 375365/23/15 at 8:54amNoodlers, something that has been concerning me lately, thought I would stick it here.
Do you think we have reached "textured tie" overload? In the past few pages, we have seen shantungs, boucles, linen, etc., and very rarely have I seen what I would call "normal" ties. I know that there is precedence for some of these textures. In particularly, shantungs, grenadines, and knits. But are we going a bit too far in the other direction? I am intrigued by the silk slubby hopsack grenadine. Don't get me wrong. But rarely have I seen it in use and thought to myself, this was the ideal tie for this outfit.
On an unrelated note, I have realized I rarely, if ever, reach for my neats.
So I am not really sure where I stand in this.
And as I say all the above, I must say I am a grenadine, knit, and shantung lover.post #24101 of 375365/23/15 at 8:56amQuote:Could this tie be worn with the Blue Plaid Formosa?
I can speak for myself. That's mostly what we see when we visit our affiliate sites. However, I just order a silk tie and a Macclesfield (silk) from Vanda. I dislike wool ties and also not the right season.post #24102 of 375365/23/15 at 8:57amThread StarterNeats are still really big. I think that it might just be an availability bias from your own preference and the current season (I think all S/S ties have some texture).
I believe printed grenadines had a quick rise and fall though. I think patterned grenadines, except for those subtle, will also be diminishing in presence shortly. As will slubby grenadines.post #24103 of 375365/23/15 at 9:01ampost #24104 of 375365/23/15 at 9:07ampost #24105 of 375365/23/15 at 9:11amQuote:
It might be down to what you're choosing to wear this time of year, but I think we all go through phases of love for a particular type. I love neats, madders in particular. But I've also been enjoying shantungs a lot recently, and grenadines, though their delicacy is starting to irritate me: they snag and show their age so readily, but I digress. All in all, if that's your range of ties, whichever you prefer at any given time is probably a good choice! The only "trend" that I'm feeling lately is an urge for more stripes in my life, and a feeling that I'm seeing them more. On which point, @venividivicibj, 2 please.
As Clags said, I might just be looking for them subconsciously, and perhaps you are too. I find it happens a lot, depending on my fixation at any given time: certain watches, pickup trucks, Porsches, big-assed women...anything, really.
