    Dinner reservations at Harvest tomorrow. I'm going to be brave and try my fit then. Hopefully not embarrassing my date too badly.

    Well, this should really have been entered last week. Or could have been. Sorry about the inevitably poor photos taken with a laptop camera which will no doubt ensure I get no votes.

    For some background, some of you may know that a major typhoon hit the Kansai area of Japan over the last couple of days. That's where I have been, and that why this cotton/linen Isaia suit in a fine blue and white stripe is rather crumpled, and also why - although you can't see this - the soles of my new 'antique smoke' Rider boots got soaked (all carefully dried out now and no harm done - and it did really highlight the fact that the Norwegian welting on these babies works phenomenonally well).

    Other deets: square is a cotton from a local company in Nippori in Japan where I am living which uses a traditional method of indigo dyeing but with modern designs (this one has bicycles on it); plain white Irish linen BD; and the tie, which should be the point: a very preppy number in primary colours from PRL - not at all my usual style, but it's summer and I think it works as the only brightly coloured element of the ensemble.

    Dapper, well-tailored and dignified...but you call that a BOLD tie? Start preparing your concession speech sir! You too Crusty...that tie wouldn't have pinged my radar for an everyday fit!

    I think Roger qualifies, but I have to agree on Crusty. Very tasteful and definitely not bold.

    Another pink paisley, but a somewhat different take on the rest of the outfit. I had to decide between this and a lime green one, but the pattern on the lime one is much more tame (small blue flowers), and I wore it last week. Besides, this tie is the only one I have that's drawn a compliment from a Senator.

    That's really quite ironic, as I believe that certain posters here had previously taken me over the coals for this particular tie, its relentless grid of cerise and yellow-gold, but perhaps the net effect of SF groupthink has so altered my tastes that I am unable to be totally bold.

    Bold seems to be about color and pattern; could fabric/weave enter into the equation?

    (I want to say no)

    As this is a "bold" tie challenge, I thought I'd channel a little bit of the late 40s "bold look" for men. Dangerous territory to emulate these days, so this is a fairly toned-down interpretation but still has the looser cut, showy DB lapels, very strongly coloured & patterned tie and an overall, well, bold effect.

    Spoo, your post upthread has me on tenterhooks! FlyingMonkey: looks great, in a very American sort of way. It reminds me of a movie (might have been Air America?) where there's this CIA guy or Congressman or something arrives in some SE Asian country dressed kind of like that. Actually, you look better than that guy did, but that's the vibe I'm getting.

    Pics don't seem to capture the true nature of this tie. It's a rather shiny silk reppe weave, with woven dots.

    My bold is likely still boring...

    If the theme was Bold Lapels, you might win.

    RogerP ups the ante with the groupthink-defying full Windsor. Take that, bishes!

    I can't help but feel cheated by how nice HF looks.
