    I think your pants are too close in color with that jacket. I can't really tell if they are faded navy, or some sort of grey.

    I'm not feeling the top here. The tie is very casual, and the pinstripes are more formal. So that's a bit of a clash. Also, and this is just preference, I don't care for light ties on light shirts. I dig the SC though.

    Thanks, yes I agree the shirt is fairly formal and perhaps a touch too formal for this. I had a white BD oxford on first and just couldn't get on board with the collar roll with a tie, so changed it. The tie is probably not as light as it seems, here is a bit better photo close up. Never the less, I like it with light shirts and it will likely get a flogging with white shirts and navy/blue suits over winter. Cheers, Jason

    I agree; I'm having a hard time putting my finger on why it doesn't work, but something does seem off to my eye. Possibly it is the clean and formal fabric of the shirt combined with the informal colour and pattern of the coat.

    I think the tie is lovely and the fabric and color is perfect for several looks I wanted to create this fall/winter, so it will be on my list of potential purchases. For me, the disconnect is that it is paired with a brown SC. IMHO, brown coats call for more saturated ties to provide sufficient contrast. The lightness of the tie seems to draw the eye outward toward the coat rather than inward. I think this would look better with the gradient reversed. A darker jacket in navy or charcoal would look great with this tie and shirt combo. I cannot put my finger on it, but I think a navy cashmere tie, orange, green, even brown, would look better with this. Toss on his caruso navy hopsack and I say this is an a+ combo. The navy PS accentuates this for me. Switch out a navy tie into this fit and a grey PS and I think it works. With browns, I always prefer to keep my grey on the bottom, and let the richness of the colors play on top.

    Just my novice thoughts. CW, your ties seem like a great value. Can't wait to order some.

    I made a similar mistake today - tan tie on white shirt. It bothered me all day that the tie's colors had very little contrast with the shirt's colors.

    I know this was a joke but I wonder if it would be interesting to say what scents (if you are wearing one...) one wears with particular fits to see if leads to any theme or intent. Just curious if others do this..

    And upon mine own shoulders fell the joke.

    Its corny as hell, but I often choose a scent to match the fit. Most times when I wear purple, I wear Creed Royal Lavender. Wearing tweed? Yep, Creed, Green Irish Tweed. Wearing flannels & suedes, Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Linens and cottons, Creed Neroli Sauvage or Erolfa. Wearing burgundy or red, Creed Original Santal, and forest greens etc. I do Creed Vetiver. Oranges and warm brown hues I wear Creed Orange Spice.

    TLDR, Im a cornball and I have an obsession with Creed fragrance.
