Looking for a tie similar to this

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi. I am looking for a tie similar to this to match this suit: http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/sienna-blue-plain/P4298I26.html

Or if anyone could suggest an alternative shirt & tie combo?

Thank you

Thank you

 

 

You'll have more trouble finding combos that don't work with a blue suit.  Solid blue and white shirts in a variety of fabrics/textures is your safest bet.  What is your budget for a tie?

Looks similar to the Brook Brothers #3 Repp Stripe, which is only available in that color in 62" length right now instead of the normal 58" length. They'll restock the regular length at some point. Me, I'd hunt on eBay until I found what I wanted.

 

If you do wear this tie with that suit, wear a white shirt. Or at least not a blue one. Three blues can be done, but they have to be the right shades.

 

The squirrel is right, though. Mostly anything will go with that suit. If you do solid shirt/patterned tie or patterned shirt/solid tie, it'll be hard to mess up. If you do mess it up, post pics.

Thank you-I don't have a budget per se, this is for a special occasion and I want to look sharp.

Looks like the original tie has some texture or a design to it.

Difficult to tell with the moire.

The tie that the reporter or sportscast announcer has would NOT be a Brooks Brothers tie from what I can tell as the direction of the stripes are going the wrong way. Mr. Brooks made it a point to make the pattern of his stripes go the opposite direction from the original tie designs from England. However, it would still look much better with a white shirt with either one of those ties. If for whatever reason you can not find the tie the reporter has on and you are open to the BB tie then take the photo to a store and have the SA do a inventory inquiry to search all stores if the warehouse does not have it.
