Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 214post #3196 of 375333/3/14 at 11:45ampost #3197 of 375333/3/14 at 12:14pm
Why not get a silk PoW and the wool one in a different color for cool weather wear? PoW ties: not just for weddings anymore.
For the wedding, I have to say I'm in the silk camp, but only if you are going to have just one wedding tie. A nice Navy or B&W Shepherd's Check is good too, though I prefer the PoW (if you can get black/white one with a blue overcheck, that's pretty nice too).
On PoW for more everyday wear, Hober has one in brown that I quite like, there are several nice ones at NMWA by Calbrese, especially an olive/navy I think is quite nice (have not handled them, but others in this thread have, I think).
Also, Conrad's wool ones look nice too (though the newest one is a touch too narrow for me).post #3198 of 375333/3/14 at 12:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by Holdfast
Funnily enough, I used to have a not-dissimilar paisley Lacroix tie in white/cream. It was pretty fly, but I don't go to many occasions where it was suitable so I sold it off a while ago.
What colour suit are you wearing for the wedding? It's controversial, but I personally believe that the standard silver/grey wedding ties (be they houndstooth, POW, checks or even paisleys) work best with dark (or at most mid-) grey suits in terms of creating that formal-but-festive look. They certainly pair well with navy suits too, of course, but I don't actually find the combination festive. It's more severe, businessy almost, than that to my eye. For a navy suit, I think a white shirt with a more relaxed pale blue tie would create the same formal-but-festive monochrome effect as the silver-on-grey does. Something like this, for example, or this.
Whichever way you go, keep the scale relatively modest.
I told her I am wearing this. I think I can make this a bit better with a PoW tie. I like the tie in your first link.
And as always, appreciate your feedback

its certainly not wrong, but with a navy suit and navy PoW you are essentially going with a monochrome look, no contrast. now, im a huge fran of monochrome looks for fun and enjoyment, but for a wedding, and for ultimate class, i think you would be better served with a blk/wht/gry PoW.

Navy suit paired with a crisp white shirt, black/grey/white tie, and freshly polished black captoes is a smashing look. That is what I plan to wear to my own wedding.
Outside of morning or evening dress, that is as classic as there is for a groom's attirepost #3206 of 375333/3/14 at 2:34pmQuote:
Stitch's point about monochrome is reasonable (i.e. a navy PoW). Still, I don't think it would be too bad in navy since from a distance it won't look like a navy tie.
My preference would be as I noted earlier, a B&W PoW with a blue overcheck (or some other color overcheck to give it a subtle visual interest).
But if you're sold on the none blue PoW, then your choice is the classic B&W which is perfectly fine and traditional.post #3207 of 375333/3/14 at 2:37pm
e.g. the midnight blue shepherd's check Hober has via that link I gave you would be too monochromatic with your suit (though I like the depth of the midnight). I worry less about the PoW. From the distance, the former will look navy and matchy-matchy and monochromatic, the latter less so (the one from Vanda).post #3208 of 375333/3/14 at 2:50pmpost #3209 of 375333/3/14 at 3:37pmpost #3210 of 375333/3/14 at 3:47pm
