    I'm not a fan of the sober jacket & trousers paired with the loud tie...it clashes in the wrong way.

    Don't seem so loud for me, purple and blue are not realy strong color, maybe the gold line is a bit bright.

    If you don't consider that a loud tie...I'd love to see what you do consider to be loud...

    We all have different interpetation. For me a sober tie is for exemple a solid blue tie or with little pattern like Capelli or Marinella, a loud tie have bright color, strong and large pattern, this one is in my opinion in th middle. I precise that i like wearing this three types of tie (sober, middle and loud), depends of my mood and i have important meeting.

    Is it? I'll keep that in mind for next year then. ;)

    @chocsosa stellar stuff as usual, but I think the hank is too bright. Also, I see a different fold in each pic?

    I concur with this. While the tie in question wouldn't quite suit my aesthetic, it would not be what I'd consider loud...

    Yea you may be right.. maybe a white linen tv fold would have worked better.. it is a different fold in different pictures.. was experimenting a little bit..

    Weird foreshortening on the feets picture makes the pants look voluminous, but they are not...

    It doesn't change the fact that the tie clashes with the otherwise sober fit. It draws too much attention to itself and away from the complete composition of your outfit.

    Koala-T, that's really quite good. Between the tie and the square there's a lot going on, but the combination is solid and the fit looks very nice.

    I'm not sure if I'm feeling the tie and pocket square combo, I'd prefer one of them to be more muted, but this is another strong fit. You've been on quite the roll lately.

    Thanks, guys. I'm second-guessing the tie a bit too, Cpt Thom, but I found it in the thrift yesterday afternoon and it just stood out, and I had to wear it. I think my main problem with it really is the broadness near the knot. If it were a bit slimmer there, I think it would look better. I'll have to experiment with tying it to get the right proportions.

    Everyone have a different taste, i can understand that this tie is not you cup of tea. But in my opinion when there is a strong piece (the tie), it's difficult to go with another strong piece (Pattern jacket etc...).

    Mr 6 is that jacket a bit too long for you? Or is it the angle?

    Regardless love the elements in your outfit especially that tie

    Have you considered putting it on a diet or developing an exercise program to tighten the silk? Bearing in mind that it might just be thin silk with a big interlining that's making it look broad.
