    I have often wondered about a black and white tie with a lighter blue suit. I think it looks good, but I am scared I will look like a ska kid or something.

    Do ska kids even exist anymore?

    Tyrwhitt is currently selling a very similar houndstooth tie in a slightly larger scale in royal blue and silvery pale gray which might give you a similar effect without the ska kid worry.

    This suit is growing on me. The tie does not work with the ensemble.

    Am I the only one bothered by this pose?

    You live in Jersey? Really? In New Brunswick (not where I am from, btw) I feel like if you aren't a huge bro you are a ska kid.


    I think he is wearing a vanda one there. I kind of like it. I might cop, or have ole' Samantha make me up one.

    I listened to ska in high school. Saw Streetlight Manifesto a bunch of times at the Pony. They put on a really great show. I rarely go to NB because I don't know anybody at RU, go figure?

    Wait, you have a lighter blue suit?


    I think my tie is actually navy/dark navy rather than black. Though I am getting a little dizzy as I stare at it now trying to tell.

    Also not Vanda but John Varatos (via the now sadly bankrupt Syms).

    I do have a lighter blue suit. Maybe lighter than the one you are wearing there. It is new, Style Forum hasn't seen it yet.

    I think I might be thinking of somebody else who has an interesting vanda tie that looks similar.

    While the suit is most lovely, I don't think anything but a white shirt would really work with it.

    Holdfast, I always love that plaid suit. It fits very well, and I like the (loud) pattern.

    He's a brave man, I don't think I could pull it off.
