    Beautiful, helden! Wool and knit ties in various colours I'd say: navy, green, rust etc. If you're more adventurous, try a lighter, greyish blue wool tie, that might work too.

    I imagine you're also not going to be visiting the Democratic People's Republic...although you could probably land some snappy military-inspired tailoring there...

    Yeah - I tend to balk at S/S blue shades of ties since I wear mostly light blue dress shirts and I just don't like that blue on blue look at all. I'm not even sure what shirt would go best with it - not white, unless maybe it's a linen shirt, since most white dress shirts would seem too formal.

    I guess certain bengal striped shirts?

    Tan summer wool or linen suit, white linen or very light pink shirt.

    Yup, that's why I'm getting the "cornflower" tie from Frui--I think it will look great with pink and lavender summer shirts.

    I would not know how to wear that tie.

    Where do y'all shop at for ties? I think I just go around in circles with Sam Hober, Vanda, and NMWA. Maybe I should go to NM.

    I think pink dress shirts, even lighter shades of it, aren't the greatest of choices for most Caucasian complexions.

    Panta is another solid option. Exquisite Trimmings yet another. You can also get some pretty nice ties from Spoo's weekly eBay auctions, and you can also keep checking the B&S forum for good deals.

    Add to that list Henry Carter and Shibumi and I think you'd have most of the places I buy ties from. I've also been really happy with my Eidos tie in terms of its hand and construction--they don't get talked about as much as their tailored clothing, outerwear, and shirts, but don't dismiss these if you see one you like.

    You mean light complexions. Complexion is not a race specific thing. I also disagree. Light pinks are a staple in the south during summer.

    I keep forgetting to look at Henry Carter's website. Solid option.

    We also have to add Cappelli. I am probably the only person in this forum who's had a bad experience with him.
