post #211 of 4687

I hope these ties are okay...picked these up today. 

Still awaiting on the hunter green pindot tie. 

 

post #212 of 4687

I've been wondering about ginghams, been inclined to a navy one in a lighter silk for spring and there are some Calabreses, perhaps gone, at NMWA in wool (though gingham+wool seems slightly odd to me, summer plus winter).

 

Anyone here have a view on these (and pics)? I suspect not the first choice for a business outfit, but in general?

 

I would keep the gingham pattern fairly small.

This?! It's on sale!

I'd recommend something like this though...for business.

Still a bit pricey and too narrow for me (are all the Calabreses gone?). I'm not sure about ginghams, but especially wool ones given the slight seasonal discord.

 

On pattern: I'd be inclined to go for a smaller pattern than the one you have for a more conservative environment. It's bold and, perhaps, more casual given the pattern (I would think). But then, I also think smaller checks on a gingham shirt are to be preferred (lest one look like a picnic table).

 

Still, this one does speak to me for spring/summer with a nice linen jacket, say one in a lighter shade of blue or in tan:

But I prefer this:

I'd have to save for a while though, but I'd like to try Vanda. The finishing on the tip of that tie is fantastic.

I like the 1st one with bigger patterns.

I agree.  I'm kinda lurking in the background but getting some great tips and insight from you veterans.

a great tie, but not super easy to use imo. light ground ties are not beginners material imho.

very nice, but not super easy to use with navy. minimal contrast. i have found that check ties like that can be pretty challenging to use.

Huh? So what is what is what? Can you clarify what your opinion is on these two ties?

Where is the brown from?

post #220 of 4687

The brown is from a local place. Actually, both are. $40 per tie.

i meant this:

im not what i was thinking, its not a light ground really, but its a gray that i think will not optimally contrast with your navy suits, but i could be wrong. either way, ime gray ties are hard. they tend to visually take on the same shade as what you are wearing with it unless its a very light or very dark gray and can clearly stand out from the jacket.

i only have a few gray ties and they get minimal wear. they usually end up being reserved for when i am in a monochrome mood and i wear them with a gray suit.

Provided it ties a nice knot, that's an excellent find. I'd wear that tie (the definition of an excellent find, just to be clear) :cheers:

post #223 of 4687

I'll be posting pix tomorrow. The knot is nice and the tie's thickness is fine and definitely not flimsy. I worry that this brown isn't really brown.

My bad...

That tie seems pretty close to brown...closer to brown than gray. However, it may be a bit rough to really to go with a white shirt, which is what you'd need for a gray or gray brown tie to work with a navy suit.

To be clear, I'm talking about the tie Stitchy's was talking about. The brown neat you got today is great
