The recent discussions of shantung ties and knot size embolden me to ask for suggestions of ties to go with my light blue silk/linen blend sport jacket. Here’s a close-up of the fabric.
(1) The reason the knot size discussion is relevant is that I need a tie that won’t make too large a knot. I’m thin (jacket shoulder-seam-to-shoulder-seam measurement is 17”) and my collar size is 15.
(2) Since this is a purely seasonal jacket, I’d prefer not to spend as much as I might on a year-round staple tie.
