On the contrary, you can make aquafaba out of the water that comes out of cans of soybeans. Or rather, aquafaba IS the water that comes from cans of soybeans.

Exactly my point sir. We all have things we like and dislike about SF but no matter how pertinent a pet peeve may be, harping on about it in seemingly every post just turns any point to be made into noise.

 2 of the best posters making the same slip imo i.e. tie/square mismatch.   Neat squares want solid ties.  Worn with a neat tie, particularly in a similar scale, a neat PS  can look like you have a spare tie in your breast pocket.

 

Love that gunclub RoyAl

Any reason why you think that?

I wouldn't say it's egregious, but the purple/green theme of both pieces makes them very matchy-matchy; and the patterns (repp and windowpane), being of similar scale, clash.

 

Together, the colour matching and the pattern clashing set up a weird cognitive dissonance. It's kind of hard to look at it. Maybe you should have spoilered the photo with a trigger warning for epileptics.

 

Of course, it's just one photo. The outfit might work much better in real life.

I appreciate your effort to respond with a bit of detail, and not to get too defensive, but a couple of hairs to split because that's what we do best here on SF - first, the jacket is more accurately tartan not windowpane. The tie is also a block stripe shantung, not a repp stripe (there is no ribbing on the tie). Finally, the jacket is green/indigo (almost navy) and the tie is green/purple, so three colours in total, and quite a common, "Scottish" combination (which is probably appropriate as the jacket is tartan).

All that said, I understand colour combos are always a bit subjective and thankfully we all have slightly different ideas about what works well.

As for your reference to "cognitive dissonance" I'm sorry coxy but when I see that on a clothing forum it always sounds like wank speak... ;-)

Believe me, if I really wanted to lay some wank speak on you, you'd have been completely inundated in verbal jizz.

In that case thank you for pulling out early.

Thank you for your comment @Pliny. People never comment my posts any more, but I agree whit you. 
I was focusing on the colours; the tie, the shirt, the jacket and the PS ought to have some of the same palette. But I see that the scaling and and the pattern don't work that well.
