Also, the tie is -1 regardless of environment.

Haha, so true, on both counts. I've never liked that style of tie...

A warm welcome to "KAV" from AAAC.

Personally, I don't like it much. Not my cup of tea at all

What color shirt would it go with? I was thinking maybe a light yellow?

If you must wear it... either sky blue or lavender would be reasonable dominant shirt colours for that tie.

That tie should be sent to The Hague and tried for it's crime against humanity.

I don't care for the tie, but depending on your work environment, you may be able to wear it. I would wear a dark suit and plain light blue shirt to tone it down a bit.

It's not as horrible as people are making it to be, but SF skews towards "classic" (ie conservative business dress - starting out attorneys and i-bankers) stripes and solids, with fancy construction (7 fold)

SF is all about expensive subtlety (especially when gotten @ bargain basement prices whilst on a business in Brussels)

Not for me personally. However, I dress fairly conservatively and am middle aged (still, I think its hard to remember...)

If your work environment fits, it could go with any solid color suit. The old rule is 2 plain and 1 fancy. In this case the tie qualifies as at least fancy.

Nonetheless, I see an advantages to the tie. It won't be vary hard to find a complementary pocket square!

The tie reminds me of my younger days when me and my friends used to go to thrift stores and seek out the most ugly and hideous ties we could find. The ties we would get were usually 100% polyester and have a blade width of around 4 1/2- 5 inches and we used to deliberately tie very wide knots, so that the knot would end up being the size of a fist.

Oh, I wouldn't say that. I've been known to wear these:http://www.pancaldities.com/

Reread my post while playing either Stravinsky's The Right of Spring or Ravel's Bolero . Looking at a $10- no $9.99 tie online and garnering learned opinion is one thing and certainly worthwhile.But you can learn more just wearing the thing. If clouds form like Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Beagles growl like Rottweilers you can just take it off and swing by the Goodwill. Sometimes the universe tells you these things, like those three horses.
