PS hope we don't just see lots of silver tie (plaid or otherwise)/sky blue shirt with dark suit combos. Let's have some variety!!

sometimes the most obvious choice is indeed the best choice.

I might need to use the light gray Wu tie! :slayer:

What about silver tie/white shirt, Doc? That's stepping out, right? smile.gif
post #23 of 197

I'm in.  Perhaps with my new suit...

I may use a tie with a gray ground. Essentially the same idea as silver. smile.gif
post #25 of 197

First outing for this tie and the suit now that I have had the jacket tailored - and the temperatures are unseasonably warm. I think it fits almost perfectly, however the trousers, while almost exactly right in terms of length have enough material left to have at least 1.5" cuffs, so I think I will have them altered...

 

Strangely, it is also the lightest coloured tie I have here. I have several other lighter-coloured ties back home in Ontario. Conrad's site described the tie as being perfect with a light-coloured jacket, and indeed that is how I intented to wear it, but the French blue is also very nice with dark brown, I think and that is how I decided to wear it today and not just for the sake of the challenge.

 

Details:

Pal Zileri Abito Privato lightweight brown with blue pinstripe tropical wool suit

CT Black Label white self-stripe shirt

Conrad Wu Oxford weave French blue triple-striped silk tie

David Andersen mid-century Norwegian sterling silver tie bar

Anonymous vintage handmade Japanese yello silk square with olive edging

Gaziano & Girling Rothschilds in dark oak (with unseen navy blue socks)

 

 

 

 

PS: someone once said I was the splitting image of EFV - I think, looking at these pictures that I am perhaps more like the bastard lovechild of EFV and Cleav... ;)

x-post WAYWRN - today is supposed to be the best day for the rest of the week in NYC.

If that's true, I'm trying to figure out which one of the gentlemen spent nine months gestating you. Did you emerge from the womb with the beard? Inquiring minds want to know . . . biggrin.gif

Oh, I guess that means that Cleav did the honours, then . . .

I see zero resemblance between FM and EFV. :/
