FRIDAY CHALLENGE 5th SEPTEMBER 2014: LOUD TIES WORN WELL

post #1 of 144
Thread Starter 

As winner of last weeks 'All Blues' challenge I present to you this weeks challenge - the loud tie challenge.

 

All you have to do is to wear a loud tie tastefully - can it be done? Yes? Show us how!


The definition of 'loud' is up to you but it's at the opposite end of the spectrum from soporific.

 

Rules -
1) Challenge is open to fits from this week only from now until midnight AEST Saturday 6th September (Australian time)
2) Outfits must fit the basic premise of a MC fit i.e shirt, tie, suit/sc, trousers and proper shoes/boots. PS's are optional.

3) The tie must be loud (D'Uh! :)
4) The rest of your fit may be as loud (or not) as you want - just remember to keep it tasteful

5) One entry per person - if you submit more than one entry, you must nominate one as your final submission
 

 

Edit: Corrected the closing date.

 

I couldn't find a way to add a poll to this post so I've created a separate thread. Please vote at http://www.styleforum.net/t/417294/poll-friday-challenge-5th-september-2014-loud-ties-worn-well/0_30

The leopards on my tie are coming for you, so you better start running:

There are two other ties of, um, historical interest, which I might put on and post later and then decide. But for now, and since no-one has gone Post-Imperial yet...

 

Deets: Cad & The Dandy bespoke blazer suit in Minnis fresco (I think 520, but I can't actually remember -it's somewhere between a true navy and RAF blue), Club Monaco (yes, you read that right) navy bengal stripe shirt , Post-Imperial cotton tie, wimple white cotton hank (+ unseen black Crockett & Jones Hallams and burgundy Mazarin socks).

The jacket is browner and has a more pronounced pattern IRL, ie it works better as a sc than the pictures might show.

I have now done so. Different tie; more attention paid to colour matching; further offsetting the tie's loudness by incorporating other points of visual interest; and attempting better overall cohesion, within the paradigm of a somewhat dignified dandyism.

 

Whether the result is an improvement on my previous effort is anybody's guess, but I present it anyway. This is now my official entry.

Bummer, I have NO loud ties.

This should be fun.  I like challenges which get members to post fits they wouldn’t otherwise post, and this surely fits that description.

Thanks. It's definitely outside my comfort zone and a challenge for me.

 

To be honest, my ulterior motive is to get some great inspiration from the group.

 

(Yes, it's all about me :rotflmao:)

Dear god.

 

There's a fine but important distinction between 'loud' and 'hideous' ...
