    This is a great picture, especially with the upcoming fall season. The olive green sits really well against the light pink tie, and the fact that it is knitted adds an extra element of contrast. Anytime you can contrast both colors and fabrics, you are doing a great job.

    I like this look. While it is monochromatic, it does look very elegant. However, since we are approaching fall season, and especially if you go out on a rainy day, a burgundy or olive green tie would top off that suit beautifully. Pattern wise this is a great combination as you have a plaid tie with a solid shirt and a solid suit! I like the look overall!

    While I love the look, but if the circumstances are unfortunate, I hope you are ok. Looks are secondary.

    I like this look a lot. The suit fits well, the shirt sleeves are slightly longer than the jacket sleeves which are a must. The four-in-hand knot works really well because the collar spread isn't extra wide, and the tie quality seems extremely high! Great look!

    That olive green tie sits very well against the plain white shirt, navy blue jacket and beige pants. Very elegant look indeed!

    That is a great look, and the knitted tie fabric / color combination with the hint of blue works perfectly with this ensemble! Love it!

    You really need color in your outfit, bro.

    Kidding. Same tie as last time? Who makes it? I have an RT that looks just like it. Two, actually. And I just discovered they're extremely subtle bi-color knits.

    Enough color?

    But to answer your question, no it's not the same tie. The green one is made by the knottery. The orange is made by the tie bar

    Well done.

    I wonder if it was the same factory. I'm sure I could tell if you posted a closeup of the back of the tie and how it's sewn together, but who really cares.

    Nice getup.

    I like the tie a lot. The lighter ground matches your suit color very well, and the darker color provides contrast. My favorite outfit of yours so far, one that I would be happy to wear.

    I have a bias against combining city suits with burgundy ties (reminds me too much of the 80s and of politicians) or earth toned ties (reminds me too much of the 90s). My two sartorial touchstones are the late 50s and the 30s, and it's rare to find those burgundy or earth toned ties matched with city suits (as opposed to tweeds or country suits) in photographs of the best dressers from those times.

    I can make a close up of the back if you want.
    RT?

    You have a good eye on details. The tie is a Marinella 7 fold.

    And today last day of 15 days working in 17 days. First time I wear a lapel flower.

    A bit shocking RT makes stuff in China. But, hey, that's life.

    As I've said, the green is made by The Knottery and the orange, which is brighter in real, is from the tie bar.
