    A tie in the right shade of green would work with that jacket and square

    Boring? Yes. But "in good taste"?

    (Also, please forgive the crappy iPhone photo.)

    The tie seems a bit rustic for the suit.

    After a few washes it softens up enough that the collar has a nice soft roll. Just feels wrong to me as a BD (I've tried it a few times) but a spread or semi spread can look just the right amount of relaxed.

    idk, i saw a few really nice ones in the RL store that looked quite similar and were BD. they were fantastic, except the fit in the body of the shirt was off.

    Royal is not right for BDs, the texture and sheen are too "luxe"
