I like it as is. I usually don't care for fits where the PS and tie provide the only pattern (even though the tie isn't really patterned per se).

I think keep the shirt, but use another square that picks up more of the tie.  As it is, the fit needs more warmth other than the tie.  Also, I think the texture of the tie echos the texture of the suit too much.  Matchy in an unintentional way.

Favorite summer wear these days: bespoke polo, bespoke pents, C&J handgrade chukkas.

Thanks @Lensmaster  Yes, I think that's good advice.  Next time I shall.

I see what you mean; but with an extroverted tie like this, I like keeping the rest quiet better.

I couldn't tell if this new (to me) knit tie is too wide, so I decided to switch tie and jacket at the last minute.

nicely done.

would love to see a full length or at least half-length (is that a phrase?).

tie is the perfect width from what i can tell...

Taking a somewhat #menswear photo these days is such a rarity, that when I do, I feel like i need to post it, just to keep my membership active..

I guess that's not really what I was getting at. I like that look too. I just mean that I tend not to like fits where the tie and PS are the only things that have a pattern, or some semblance of a pattern (as with your tie today). A solid grenadine does not fit that criteria in my mind and would look very nice in the context you describe. In any case, it's a personal preference and has no authority over anyone but me.

A Foo-ism and signs of his lingering influence on SF...

post #38594 of 43999

:foo: is the first person I heard articulate it, yes. He has probably had the most influence on my style of any SF person although I find myself moving away from him as I go more toward Trad/Ivy.

post #38595 of 43999

Yup, he was so adamant about some of these "rules" - like the PS / tie not being the only pattern.  That one still lingers with me, perhaps more than others, but less so over time
