Sorry to miss you @Coxsackie . Six and I were mostly doing things from memory rather than going through the original thread, not efficient but this is all done on the fly. Thanks for posting.

Let me confess that summer is my least favorite season of the four as far as weather is concerned.  Happily, in my line of work I can spend most of it at home.   While I have a number of suits and jackets which are seasonless, I’ve decided to go with the four jackets I have which are unambiguously spring or summer, which means at this point I’ll only be posting four (if time permits and the spirit moves me I might add to this later as I’ve probably got a half-dozen or more additional SS ties).  As with the F/W thread, I apologize for the poor quality of my Canon point-and-shoot photos.


Here are a few more.


Two solid brown linen ties—one light, one dark.  Very versatile staples.   Would’ve worked with any of the four jackets for a more conservative look.





Diagonal stripe linen.  Would’ve worked with either the solid blue or the solid mustard jackets, I think.





A diagonal stripe cotton.   Would’ve worked with either the solid blue or the solid mustard jackets.




A seersucker gingham.  I wish it were a darker blue; this almost turquoise shade doesn’t work with any of my jackets.  A pity since in other respects I like the tie very much.

Should us normal mortals post anything? :paranoia: Just some ties, no real fit pics built up yet...

@smittycl  you can get your pics together. Six and I are waiting for a few others to post before we open it up to everyone.


Just to be clear, this isn't meant to be a WAYWRN thread or a Friday Challenge type thread. We are aiming for a thread that will be useful down the road. I know people have philosophical differences with my approach here. :) But I do want 15 or so initial pics to set the tone/standard/vibe and then open it up to see how everyone might respond.



Note, the F/W 10/5 thread will become relevant again soon, and I hope people will update or add pics. That thread has been open to all for a while and it would be good to see more ties posted. I know you had some F/W ties posted originally there, and I invite you to repost them.

Update...switched out the asymmetrical striped tie that was one of my 10 and felt more of a transitional tie into or from fall/winter to this one that I just picked up from NMWA, light blue linen



I'm also trying to live by the rules here for the next two weeks, so if you're interested in whether one can make do with 10/5 (plus assorted squares), i.e. keep things interesting without boring repetition, click on this link and the obvious hashtag


Perhaps I will post the results here.

Following in Tweedy's footsteps by supplementing my own photos. Here's from the past week with a take on that delicious combo.

Speaking of shantung ... enjoying both of these. Simple, but nice colors and enjoyable texture.

And as further supplement. When I ordered this jacket, I thought of it as being a bit more F/W. Now that I've had it a while, it seems to work year-round. Here with shantung and habotai silk. But it also showed up in the F/W 10/5 thread with madder and cashmere.

@Mr. Six 


Well, you live in the bay area! Summer-winter who knows (though variance across the Bay).


Encouraging others to "update" as we wait a few stragglers.


For me, part of the reason for thinking about this 10/5 exercise was to think about versatility, especially regarding ties. So, here's a different look with one of my ties. The bright blue lends itself to sunny days (photo doesn't quite bring it out).


This was a special run by Patrizio Cappelli when I happened to catch him by email while he was on one of his trips to England. A lucky coincidence. Same mill, I suspect, as did a run for Drake's, though the Drake's navy version had a less bright light blue in the medallion. Patrizio was accommodating in picking up the "Drake's" colors (navy and green) in both silk and challis (you can still get challis versions at Cappelli). This is a light silk twill.
