I'll post my yellow ties too

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 wink.gif

You have more than one yellow tie?!? Let's see them! smile.gif

@EliodA
I think it may be helpful to reference the Friday Challenge that they did with yrllow ties. They all looked atrocious to me though.

Thanks, now I remember! But like you, I don't think there were any fits that I liked. Still, I'll check it out.

This.

 

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.

Deal!

That's 4 votes in favour of the shearling bomber jacket, and 5 against.

 

"Condor wingspan collar looks very dated" kinda hurtz.

 

Still haven't kopped. Maybe I might pass this time.

It has some sentimental value to me, and discarding it is out of the question.

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!

Option 1. I love a challenge but the best looks I could come up with in my head still look terrible with that tie.

 

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.

@Coxsackie

Just get the jacket already!

I want you to do this at a rugby stadium wearing that jacket!

So much for the timeless classics of menswear! :D

bane jacket so cool.

Elio, I think the criticism of the tie is a bit overstated. It's not SF-approved, but that doesn't make it bad.

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 …).  ;)

 

Cheers,

Yes, when SF disapproves of something it does so hyperbolically.  The echo chamber is also an amplifier.

 

Cheers,

I like that... and if the lights are dimmed enough and the wine flows abundantly, perhaps I can get away with that tie ;)
