Depends how thick and long tie is. And on the collar gap and spread.

Tie is 8cm at widest point and 150cm long. Medium spread collar.

This question is one of yours I have problems with - theres others the same.
Its a short short question that is almost impossible to answer - theres no context, no background, no idea of why you are asking and it seems to assume theres one right answer.
You've already seen with a question above about "flannel" in summer that the answer, like most questions in life, varies - depending.
If you want help you need to expand more.
What summer where, is it for a suit, or pants or jacket, what do you have already, do you have an opinion, are you getting a bespoke suit made, will it be lined, do you know what fresco is, ...... and so on...
It depends - if you are walking outside on a 40C day then it really doesn't matter much what you are wearing - you'll be hot.
Maybe only 42.5C inside an open weave (fresco) unlined jacket as opposed to 44C inside a lined jacket or 41.5C inside a shirt with no jacket.
Some of these things are like debating the number of angels that can fit on a pin head - fascinating - but the answer doesn't make much real difference in everyday life.

 

Sorry again; it will be in Melbourne's heat (my thermostat says 30 degrees as of now T_T) and for suit, will be worn over an oxford or a linen blend. Trying to find a suit where the jacket is casual enough to wear on its own and if so might be worn over a polo. Not sure if it will be lined; though it will be either MTM or RTW (still looking)

You calling me soft, fxh?

....Actually totally get what you are saying (I think) about the hard/soft look and I think for the most part I wear things on the softer side (and I would imagine most Aus SFers and well dressed gents do). I am thinking brown or suede shoes, lighter or more textured materials for jackets/trousers, soft structured, unlined things, pocket squares that are not a solid colour, textured ties, more patterns (but subtle ones), and then things like white jeans, chinos, socks in any colour but black, maybe even a boutonniere.

That said I do love occasionally going the full British hard look (as we Scots as the UK's hard men), classic navy/charcoal suit, blue/white solid shirt, solid/mirco pattern tie, black shoes, darker socks (or bright red), white pocket square, maybe even a neat side parting.

Speaking of which another +1 on Rockit Barbers, someone mentioned them again a few pages back, think I will visit again this week....maybe no more All The King's Men for me...(too far away, too busy, cheap and possibly better cut at Rockit).

Just curious what are your favorite tie knots guys?

 

not a favorite of mine, nor have i tried it, but this knot looks very interesting (and busy)
