Matching a tie with this shirt...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
What kind of tie would go along good with this shirt here? I bought it a while ago and have only worn it without a tie. The pattern and color is so bold, I was reluctant to go out and find a tie for it. I've been trying to keep an eye out for a tie that would go along but have never found anything anyways. So I have to consult all you fashion savvy guys here...

the first color that came to mind was silver. i suppose the easy answer would be blue, to pick up on the stripes. good luck.

for some reason I like this one, although Carlo Franco has a couple that would compliment in more and less exciting ways:

I'd personally go with something bright like a striped tie with pink or blue, it's not like that shirt is going to be really subtle anyways. J Crew makes a repp tie that may work for that purpose.

Navy would be good - loud tie/loud shirt is very hard to carry off... Not that I have anything against either

solid dark blue or gray.

A solid colored grenadine to give textural interest, but act as a counter to the bold stripes. I think it's a great shirt.

Great shirt -- this is why I'm now looking more for T&A on EBay than Borrelli. I'd pair it with solid navy or navy with white dots. A royal blue would work as well, but would be less subtle. Add a blue blazer and you'll be all set. Not more stripes.

Unless I'm reading the colors wrong, I'd try a solid baby blue with a smooth finish; if that weren't an option, I'd look for a baby blue with a very small, subtle pattern.

Strongest recommendation is the dark blue, plain or maybe with very subtle "dots" (not closely spaced polka dots though) in a complimentary color, but more likely in plain with a textured weave. I actually have a tie that would be perfect for it (but I'm going to keep it). I'm not a huge fan of grenadine ties, but that's not your only option for texture of course.

EDIT to remove a dark tie option...Too Contrasty.

Jon- As usual great choices and great matching. Oh yeah, wonderful shameless self-promotion. For me, I would go with either # 1 or # 5 as first choices.

Damn...Cant get ANYTHING by you lawyers... For those that are not on the ball here, 5 is actually 4 as I removed number three as the edit suggests.

And I wouldnt try and get another color pink in here in the tie as there is little chance that it will match that color and not clash. JJF

A friend commented that it wasnt really Shameless self promotion since I didnt include the links to my site. He is right and you should all know that it was merely an oversight...   Here goes... (Now THATS shameless) Solid Blue Repp Weave Solid Blue Weave Blue and Grey Weave Navy Polka Dot
