What is the best color of tie to compliment/liven up the following for the spring time:

Relatively dark brown shoes/matching belt, dark navy suit, white french cuff shirt w/cufflinks.

Thanks,

Number one get rid of the french cuffs. That will liven it up nicely for the spring. As for the tie maybe a green grenadine, or a repp tie.

No, but what are you looking for? confused.gif

Navy is just a color not a discipline.

I guess it is too specific. I'm just trying to get an idea of tie and pocket square combinations to go with a navy suit.

Honestly, almost anything. Navy is such a blank canvas. I would look at the WAYWRN thread and the WAYWRN CBD thread.

I'm probably just over thinking things. Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to check those out.

Another thing is not to be too matchy-matchy. I generally think what looks best is to somewhat match your tie with your shirt and have a pocketsquare that is somewhat unrelated to both. Examples: You could probably look in any of their image hosting sites to see other examples, I am sure.

Can I get some feedback on the fit of this jacket? Bad pants color and untied shoes need not be pointed out shog[1].gif

Thank you both for your responses. Sounds great. I was told by the shop that it was short hornback alligator, but I didn't know if there was strictly a hornback alligator or if there was a hornback crocodile as well. I bought them in Austin, Texas and when I asked the shop said a local celebrity was selling them, specifically an athlete, but they wouldn't reveal his name. The only Austin athlete I know of with this size foot would be Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong and although they wouldn't say who, they did smile very big when I said his name. It could explain the very high arches in these considering a cyclist would have pronounced arches over many years time from the racing pedals such as a Shimano XTR970 or 980. That and it would be hard to purchase these shoes without going into the boutiques themselves which at the present I can't do. Well thank you once again! I'm keeping them no matter what. Over here in south Texas, nobody has seen any similiar boots.

Hi!  I can't read the handwritten size on the label of these Silvano Lattanzis.  Can anybody out there tell me what the last part of the third line of text means?  Thanks beforehand, -M-

Thanks. If I may ask, what is wrong with french cuffs? I see it quite a bit around my workplace as well as some posts on here.

Thanks, that was actually pretty helpful. I am usually pretty bad at color coordinating and end up just using a white pocket square, so its good to know that the PS doesn't really have to match anything.
