Thank you. I'd gladly buy a brown one or any other versatile colour. It's just really hard to find one that fits, is versatile (i.e. not celery green or red) and doesn't have any eccentric detail (i.e. flap patch pockets). I might even buy the blue one and wear it all-year long until I find better options. The long term plan is going bespoke but I'd rather try a few things first, so I'll know what I want.

I'd be very tempted by this one:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sartoria-Partenopea-40R-Brown-Gray-Twill-Cashmere-Sportcoat-With-Patch-Pockets-/141756349307?hash=item2101563b7b:g:zMQAAOSw5ZBWQhT5

 

Take the 18.5 shoulder measurement with a grain of salt; if they're unpadded and unstructured, they'll fit more like an 18 natural shoulder.

I'd wear it with a navy or slightly lighter than navy suit, white shirt. White linen PS if you are that way inclined. Keep it simple, nothing silly.

I tried that combo today but the white shirt and light tie looked very washed out

I think you just answered your own question. Stop buying so many novelty ties. Light yellow patterned gauze tablecloth is not a good tie material.

Other than the two above, how do you know how many/what type of ties I own?

In any case, I just bought these for summer:

Yellow ties get no love here.

I was wondering that too… yellow? As a summer tie it doesn't strike me at all as problematic. Someone of course will need to write a manifesto about it.

I'm looking for a nice block stripe tie. Preferably a good fall/winter fabric. Any suggestions?

I really want these boots to go with jeans and cords/tweed trousers. Someone please talk me into/out of it.
