A very good suggestion... But I don't have a three piece suit and even if I did, it wouldn't get much use here in Indonesia
You have more than one yellow tie?!? Let's see them!
For strongly patterned ties (paisleys, large scaled ginghams etc.) or colors, minimizing its exposure is the way to make it work, if it will work. I agree with the suggestions of a navy coat, but you could also try a sweater vest, e.g. mid gray but not too dark. The tie then serves to give the outfit a bit of pop.
that's a dog of a tie, but also a piece of history rite there EliodA. I say keep it and who knows, style might come around again in a couple of decades.
So... while cleaning up, in the proverbial bottom drawer I found the first 'real' tie I ever bought (as opposed to a few polyester disasters from my teenage years). It's a Charvet, bought during a trip to Paris around 20 years ago and typical of that era. Unfortunately.
It has some sentimental value to me, and discarding it is out of the question. So I thought, I have two options: 1) put it back in that drawer and forget it again, or 2) ask the good fellas of the Noodles thread for advice on how to wear it. And thus, gentlemen, I ask you: can you give me tips on how to combine this thing in a somewhat tasteful or at least acceptable manner? Or should I resort to option 1?
Your feedback is much appreciated!
The tie’s also shiny, at least on my screen, so I’d wear it after dark with a charcoal or midnight blue suit (preferably three-piece) and a white shirt.
In my world that’s a going-out-to-dinner-at-a-dimly-lit-French-restaurant tie (to use the technical term …).
