Gentlemen, you are cordially invited to take part in this week's Friday challenge:-

The KNIT or GRENADINE NECKTIE Friday Challenge 20th June 2014


In this challenge please don a Knit or Grenadine NECKTIE with the nonchalance befitting these boards. You are given free rein to dress it up or dress it down if you wish. Once again there is scope here so, essentially, another freestyle challenge!











By definition a tie, of course, is obligatory!

Challenge details:

Submissions must be posted by 1800hrs GMT Saturday 20th June 2014. All submissions are to have been worn week beginning 16th June 2014. The poll will go up directly on Saturday evening GMT and close on Sunday (midnight) 22nd June 2014. For the summary post, I will use only one picture per entrant and will therefore choose your first offering.


May the best fit win!


Your runners and riders are:-

Ok, I'll admit I cheated: I only wore this fit this morning, before we went out for the birthday party. So feel free to ignore my entry if it's not by the rules.

Deets: nicely wrinkled Isaia fine navy and white stripe cotton summer suit*, CT shirt in large sky gingham, pale yellow and navy w. sky blue Corneliani silk knit tie, vintage silvertone tie bar, standard white cotton hank. Not seen: Bally mid-brown leather and beige woven cotton shoes, blue and white socks.



Extra pic with cheap Japanese summer hat (made from paper). (Click to show)

*which now fits perfectly thanks to my being on my way to getting back into shape for competition - I've lost 3.5kg over the last year (or around 8lbs) I look at last year's shots wearing this suit, it looks uncomfortably tight. I think I was wearing it more in the hope that it should fit me rather than that it actually did...

I was also wearing this earlier in the week, which would also have qualified: Pal Zileri Abito Privato brown suit with blue pinstripes, blue CT shirt, silver RLPL silk knit tie, vintage green-edged yellow silk PS. Unseen: vintage silver David Andersen tie bar, chestnut Stemar v-tips, brown Mazarin socks.

Taking a risk with the striped shirt against the Glen Plaid, I know.

Me today. It was still warm so opted for linen shirt. It's obviously a suit so lower half looks the same + brown captoe oxfords.



Still have no grenadine ties, never seen one in a store around here.

Great challenge, Cleav! Knits are my thing (the majority of my fits here feature knits), but unfortunately I have no opportunity to participate... Looking forward to see the results, though!
